A mentalism effect so easy it is ridiculous, and nobody can figure it out. Anyone heard of it?

Too easy? For me, the beauty of magic is the end result.....the response from my spectators. It is the art of controlling your audience, and leading them to believe what you want. It is not the dificulty of the sleight and the coordination needed to make it. Why make something difficult only to get the same result? It is like driving home from work, the long way.

I just like to SELL my spectator on the fact that "I am reading their mind" and if I can't sell him/her on that.......then "I am reading their body language"

why make it difficult? because if you do easy trick all the time the magic get really boring. that way if you have a hard trick. it's exiting on both ends. (spectators and me) forget all the mumbo jombo you say... there are tons of easier and better mind reading trick that are ten times better then fearsons aces. i like ribbon spreading the cards and telling them to think of a card.. then i guess right 98% of heh time. that's fun and easy. also done with a regular deck. for me.. fearsons aces is the right kind of trick. but hey. get it anyway. it's free.

Hey, the ends justify the means. Sure i like playing with difficult sleights but in the mind of the spectator you are a miracle maker. That isnt easy. Sometimes ill do a self working trick and people will think im a slieght of hand master. Other times ill do an effect with a few moves and people will be amused but not take a liking to it.

It should be a PDF file, not a zip. And it should be an e-mail attachment. To open the PDF, you will need to download Adobe Acrobat Reader, from Adobe.com.
