VOLITION:

A single folded prediction is passed to your participant to hold. The participant is shown three objects, they are then told in advance that they will decide where the objects will be placed. The participant makes their choices where these objects will be placed and they can even change their mind. The magicians prediction matches perfectly.

The participant really does decide which object goes where and the prediction unquestionably matches their three free choices.

In my opinion this is the best take on the free will principle. This adds additional elements, dimensions and subtleties which make it commercial, deceptive and very clean.

This is simple, there are no cheesy props and there is no equivoque.

In Joel's take on the the Three Will Principle your participant is told about the decision they will make before the effect begins and his choices are his own

VOLITION v2:

This is currently my favourite impromptu business card effect to perform and it is not based on the Three Will Principle. This is unique, impossible and leaves your participant and spectators with a memorable effect. Three business cards are passed face down to a participant to mix. After deciding which card will go where, your participant's actions where predicted well ahead of time.

Your participant is given complete control of the cards, they are informed before hand that each card will go to a different location. This is as fair as it gets.

This is self contained, no special gimmicks are required, it's impromptu and this leaves your audience with no logical explanation.

So cool - fun and great intro or mid trick Report this review
Verified buyer Pro Privacy ON (login to see reviewer names) on May 18th, 2018
First, I love it when Joel says "Pocket" :)

This is a great rendition of a classic illusion and so well
crafted.

Joel explains the effect and training very well.
And has another idea for this illusion.
Oh and a pdf comes with this.

It's in my restaurant work right now.
And the price is so good.

Oh and Joel says "Top" so cool too.

WILL TO READ ON ROIDS!! Report this review
Verified buyer Pro Privacy ON (login to see reviewer names) on May 18th, 2018
This reminded me of Will To Read by Steve Dela and Alakazam as I love everything mentalism they release. Penguin and Alakazam have been working together if you visit the sites so I am happy to see that. This download/ email blast I knew this was a worker and I must say that I was extremely fooled. I knew that "Something" had to happen to make this work so freely, but was clueless on the rest. Before even making up my business cards I had to write a review of this.

Joel, and Penguin - you have released a MONSTER Mentalism effect that takes up zero space, all you need is a sharpie and some business cards to make it. You will create this in less than 5 minutes, and performing right after the video (with practice of presentation of course making it your own). I will also say that without getting into the details, if you own certain Wallets - you could also perform this effect with the Wallet! I am deffinetly going to do it that way. This is something you can have multiple setups for being that the effect is so simple, (just as WILL TO READ by Steve Dela is) so you can focus more on your presentation.

As Peter Nardi says in Screen Test: "Mentalism is when you present something that may be simple to perform, but it is YOU who makes the magical connection happen to the spectator, leaving an everlasting moment from your performance.

Joel, Penguin - Amazing job. So excited to use this, and P.S: Joel gives you various ways to reveal/ and perform this effect - so as i mentioned one tool that if you have it will work, otherwise look no further, hit add to cart. I do see this rising in price, the value in the method is worth 5x what you are paying. Like mentalism? Have $10? Learn NOW!

Good trick, misleading trailer. Report this review
Verified buyer Pro Privacy ON (login to see reviewer names) on August 13th, 2018
First of all I must say that I am a little disappointed because the trailer is misleading. They cut out a key moment in the trick to make it look way better prior to buying the download. It is not even close to how clean it looks on the promo video.

With that said.. it is still a clever trick. Is it the best download on Penguin, absolutely not. Is it worth $10, probably not.

The method does work and it is a cool trick to get your business card out there. But once again, was a little disappointed they cut out key moments of the trick. Probably would not have purchased if the full performance was shown.

Finally, please don't let my negative comments above totally push you away from buying this trick as it is an interesting effect. So if this is something you're interested in, I would pick it up. $10 isn't going to kill you even if you leave with a little distaste from the misleading promo.

So endless coooooool Report this review
Verified buyer Pro Privacy ON (login to see reviewer names) on June 26th, 2018
I bought this trick some weeks ago. In the meanwhile I had to reorder business cards. Damn, I never ever gave
away that many business cards. The secret is an evil masterpiece, although you can simply re-engeneer it when you see the „unedited“ trailer. The trick is worth it's money, easy to do – you can perform maybe 2 minutes after you watched the video. I already have 2 gigs resulting from this trick. And I’m not a pro magician– I do this as hobby.

Simple & Strong Report this review
Verified buyer Pro Privacy ON (login to see reviewer names) on June 26th, 2018
I really don't usually write reviews, but I thought I'd do Joel Dickinson a solid and let all of you know how much I really enjoyed this effect. For those of you who say that it doesn't get good reactions, please check your presentation. At first I thought that the "secret move" would be noticeable (to be honest, I thought it was stupid!), but I've done this many times without the spectator even caring about what I'm doing! The misdirection is that good! I would really want to give this a bad review so no one else purchases this effect, but I believe I should give credit where credit is due. Bravo Mr. Dickerson, I'll await your next creation.

If you are looking for a great way to get your business cards in a customers hands in a magical way and in a way they will actually keep your card and talk about the moment, then this is it!

It is a straight forward and very easy piece of Mentalism that will leave a great impression.
