Trust me, you want to check out Annemann's instructions in Practical Mental Effects.

Same book, different printing (but identical). Why Dover changed the name is hard to say (and why they put a picture of Dante on the cover, stranger still).

You can find a very good Card Index in : Ted Lesleys DVD Vol 1, Cabaret Mindreading. I use a similar one, works very easy. You can "get" any card under 4-6 seconds.

Bob Kohler also distributes a 26 card index. It's required in one of his effects with the black envelope. The black envelope by they way utilises a beautifull method for the card insertion to the envelope.

Not sure if you can get this in the states but I recently went to a Richard Pinner lecture and he showed us is ICIB index which is very clever. Try to get hold of his lecture notes Magnificent Octopus which has this in also contains a great card to ceiling routine and a fantastic ending to an ambitious card routine called holy smoke plus quite a few more.

All great replies, thanks....thinking about getting the ultimate index to start with, have some ideas already......

Wondering if the mystery box can be made and used with the index......Hmmmmm

Sorry, I don't understand that. Are you saying that you want to construct your own Mystery Box, or just find a way to make the box work with a card index?

The Ultimate Index is probably fine, although the layout with Annemann's version is extremely fast and logical. And yes, it could theoretically be used with the Mystery Box -- although, since misdirection wouldn't allow you to do a Mercury Fold in your pocket upon retrieving the correct card, you would have to load the index with pre-folded cards; this could get quite bulky.

Good luck,
Neil

Yes, I was thinking the index then mercury fold then box but Neil you are right......it would turn out a mess and cant do the fold in the pocket.

Some are using Paperclipped and mystery box and hear it works nicely.....

I don't understand that; Paperclipped performs the same function as Mystery Box.

Neil,

Some have suggested finding the "card" from paperclipp in Kennedy's mystery box, ie; an alternative to Jay's laying the paperclipped card on the table in full view of spec.

That would render either the mystery box or the paper clip superfluous. If you wanted to keep the card out of view until the end you could use a regular box.
