I don't do a lot of Mentalism right now as I do a lot of kids shows. I do, however, use mental epic to end every show (except for shows with kids younger than 10). I find it is a good way to bring everybody down to a quiet calm after screaming and dancing and laughing. I set a mood saying that this trick requires quiet and concentration on everyone's part. I am always impressed by the audiences willingness to listen at this point. No one has ever asked to see the gimmick and people are always floored by the revelations....

Anyone else have Mental Epic or something similar....."one ahead principal"

Do you like it?

Neil I'd like to get your thoughts on this one....

I think you already know my thoughts (hey, how did you do that?) --

Personally, I'm not a fan of the usual Epic board, as it looks too gimmicky for me. On the other hand, Xpert Epic, one of the routines in the booklet that accompanies The Xpert, is a standard part of my performing repertoire. It lets me do a very deceptive and clean three-part prediction, and all of the predictions (written on the performer's business cards or postcards) can be given away as self-promotional souvenirs.

Richard Osterlind also has a very nice version in his book, The Very Modern Mindreader.

It just depends on the type of kids... I did some card mentalism to a friends lil brother, he is only 6-7 and he totally freaked out.

So don't underestimate some kids ;)
