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!

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.

Great little trick Report this review
Verified buyer Pro Privacy ON (login to see reviewer names) on May 29th, 2018
This is a nice take on the Free Will principle. The method is quite different from either Free Will or Will to Read.
I think this method obscures the ambiguity a bit better than the other tricks. I really like the second method he teaches. Hardly any slights are required. Just one "move" that is easy to hide if you use your back pocket. All in all, a nice little effect.
Name of trick is a bit confusing. It has nothing to do with Steve Cook's Volition.

This is awesome Report this review
Verified buyer Pro Privacy ON (login to see reviewer names) on May 26th, 2018
I love this effect. It is very easy to do. The psychology behind it is great. The first person I showed this to was a fellow magician and he was totally amazed. This is my new favorite business card effect. It goes with me everywhere. You will not be disappointed with this.

Simple, Elegant, Good Report this review
Verified buyer Pro Privacy ON (login to see reviewer names) on May 25th, 2018
Was I surprised at how it was done? Not really. But it's elegant, simple, and effective, and will serve you well. I do think it requires some good patter to sell the effect though: with only three cards it doesn't necessarily scream "remarkable" unless you can make people think it SHOULD scream "remarkable." Would definitely ensure that you write down your prediction ahead of time rather than trying anything that might make people suspect you're cheating somehow.

I enjoyed this routine, and see other possibilities that can be adapted. It’s simple, clean and effective and of course fooling :-)
