First, I love it when Joel says "Pocket" :)
This is a great rendition of a classic illusion
and so well
Joel explains the effect and training very well.
another idea for this illusion.
Oh and a pdf comes with this.
It's in my restaurant

And the price is so good.
Oh and Joel says "Top" so cool too.

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.
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!

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.
I bought this because the only unusual way I had to leave my business card was to do a card reveal
on it's back. But I couldn't do it without a deck obviously. Now with Volition, I don't need to
carry a deck, and the reset is quick. It is really easy to master, there are more than one way to do
it (myself I added a rubber band to ''the move'') and it leaves most people speechless. Works every
time. I used it all around this week-end while strolling, and it fooled even those who said they
''knew the trick'' to my chop cup or ambitious card. It is well worth the price to me since the
business card they are left with has the emotion of the mystery they just witnessed attached to it.
I guess they are most likely to keep it. And if they don't, it's still a great way to leave them. I
will use this for a long time.
I am a hobbyist magician and I have already spent a considerable amount of money on all sorts of
I recently purchased Volition and performed it to friends as part of a
sequence of magic effects I put together with others magic effects from my extensive inventory.
Volition was the one that got the best reaction by far, no doubts. Which is mind blowing to me,
considering that this is an absurdly simple trick to perform and to prepare. This forced me to write
my first review here on Penguin Magic.
I love Free Will by Elmwood Magic. I have performed it with Chips, Coins, and Cards. Now it is as
impromptu as it gets. Set up a stack of Hotel Info business cards last night put them in the
business card hold here at the Front Desk. Sure enough I got the “Do a trick” from a guest. Picked
up the stack of business cards that had been in plain sight the whole time. Worked like a charm. I
love this effect. Wrote up the bonus idea real quick afterwards and sure enough they brought more
back and gave me the do that again. Grabbed the business cards (semi gloss). Wrote on them and paid
homage to Arthur Emerson with a little This and That display. Quick switch and Volition again with
the guests having no clue it was the same thing. Joel you rock!
A Great Opener. I use this as an example of a spectator's already existing intuitive abilities. OR,
I show it as an example of how external forces (ME) can have an influence on us in everyday life.
DOWNPLAY this effect = BIGGER reactions. Trust me.
Also... YOU, must make
this effect MATTER. Otherwise is just seemingly a one out of nine chance or something with some odd
stuff written on cards.. "Cute trick magic boy". Display your ability, empower a spectator, or do
anythingggg. Otherwise this, with no context or reason, is just another, "Ehh" trick.
I love this effect. If you want to amaze your audience, this is for you. Easy to do but it
delivers a very strong impact. This is a real winner!
This trick I now keep on me all the time. the teaching is simple and the trick plays out very well.
I have performed this many times now and gets great reactions and the best part is it's a perfect
way to hand out business cards.
As stated above this is a great trick to carry around. It's also something you can pull off
impromptu,I always like to have something on me in case someone walks up and asks for me to show
them a trick. This is the perfect trick to pull-out it packs small and plays big.
