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.

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!

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.

sooo clever Report this review
Verified buyer Pro Privacy ON (login to see reviewer names) on June 10th, 2018
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.

This is very much worth buying Report this review
Verified buyer Pro Privacy ON (login to see reviewer names) on June 10th, 2018
I am a hobbyist magician and I have already spent a considerable amount of money on all sorts of magic products.

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.

Impromptu Free Will! Report this review
Verified buyer Pro Privacy ON (login to see reviewer names) on June 7th, 2018
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!

This is Great. I'm a little in love. Report this review
Verified buyer Pro Privacy ON (login to see reviewer names) on June 7th, 2018
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.

Great trick to carry around. Report this review
Verified buyer Pro Privacy ON (login to see reviewer names) on June 1st, 2018
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.
