There are several things to like about this effect. It is entirely self-working so you can
concentrate totally on performance. The predictions written on the cards are indeed written by YOU,
so there is no handwriting discrepancy you see on some effects like this. The spectator has complete
control over their half of the deck and they simply cannot mess this trick up in any way. And
finally, they have completely free selection of whatever cards they want to choose from your half of
the deck, and they can even pick the piles the card goes to. And yes, it is repeatable with
No, your half of the deck is not examinable, but you can ribbon spread
the cards face up to make it seem fairly relaxed. Peter has made this effect very simple to do.
There is a bit of initial one-time pre-work you'll have to do on a few cards, but it doesn't take
long and it does allow you to freely show the predictions to even your spouse and not worry about
them noticing the cards came printed with predictions on them. It's really you.
I am a big
fan of effects that allow you to relax and concentrate on presentation rather than method. This one
fits the bill. You could easily use this as a closer or if you are into mentalism and want to add a
card effect with a mentalist edge, you've got a winner here.

If you want an easy mentalism effect that packs a punch, then this is it! This is sooo easy, that
you can concentrate on building up the effect! I'm not sure, for strollers, that you'd want to do
this at every table or for each audience, but just once in a while during the course of the evening
would be great!
I thought about this one for a few weeks before ordering it, and now I wish
I had ordered it sooner!
After watching the promo I really liked the idea of all the choices that get made. Love the self
working part too. My biggest draw back that I need more work on is remembering the 3 cards you wrote
the note on. I stumble on that way too much and it kills the effect. I would have changed the secret
to make them easier to remember.
