"It is surprising and very entertaining, and in the right hands can seem Miraculous. Plus it’s loads of fun and priced right." - Marc Salem

"Zag is a wonderful tool to guess the spectator age. It’ easy for the magician as well as the spectator. And if you combine this tool with other principles you have a killer effect without elements at all" - Manuel Llaser

"I’m always up for propless mentalism. Great icebreaker for casual environments. Im adding this one to my arsenal!" - Reynold Alexander

“Zag is a deceptive ‘mathematical’ mentalism piece that is within anyone’s grasp - even mine! The simplicity of the cleverly thought out method matched with a logical presentational connection to the zodiac and numerology makes this an extremely useful tool to have in your propless arsenal.”

Zodiac Age Guess is a strong piece of propless mentalism where you predict someone’s age using just their zodiac sign. Tori’s brilliant presentation hides a devilishly easy mathematical principle that is so easy a 5th grader could do it.


Here’s what happens. A spectator tells you their zodiac sign and then does a few simple calculations. From that result they tell you a single number that allows you to tell them their exact age. No need to write anything down or do complex equations in your head. It’s that straight forward.


Zodiac Age Guess isn’t just a great mystery, it’s a secret you’ll never forget. Once you learn this effect you’ll always have some excellent magic to perform even when you don’t have any props. Included with this download is a PDF that also gives you some simple tips so that you can turn this trick into a zodiac reading.

Two words turn this good trick into a showpiece Report this review
Verified buyer Pro Privacy ON (login to see reviewer names) on June 14th, 2019
The method as taught, absent the two words, provide you with a reasonable process for determining someone's age with near certainty. It's clever and workable.

HOWEVER, with the addition of two words you can extend the effect that will not only leave the spectator with a keepsake that they will keep (for goodness sake) but also extend the presentation in two dimensions, making it play much longer and a lot bigger.

That thought occurred to me when I saw the Penguin presentation and I gambled my $9.95 that it would work. It appears that it did.

So, what, you ask, are those two words? Well, you've stuck with me this far so here they are: magic square. Once you get their age, don't blurt it out, instead, as they have been going through their calculations, as shown on the penguin demo video, you have been construction the square. When you learn their age that's the time to fill in the "critical squares" and then move into the square as if it was an extension of the calculations they had been doing.

A little time misdirection later you start to show how this bunch of numbers (that include ones mentioned in the ZAG portion) adds up to their age... over and over again. At least, that's how I'm going to use this.

And finally, kudos to Penguin for posting a demo video with no obvious cuts or other things that obscure the actual presentation.

ZAG: Zero Astonishment Gag Report this review
Verified buyer Pro Privacy ON (login to see reviewer names) on June 19th, 2019
Tori Noquez did a good job in the instruction part of the trick. The trick itself didn't exactly excite me. You get to the last step of the trick and you have to GUESS their age. If the participant is 43 and you guess 33. Oops! "Oh well, I guess magic's not perfect after-all." Anybody can guess. Magicians are not 'anybody'. Also, I'm not a fan of "Guess which hand" tricks because it's only 50/50. Now, if you can guess which hand, and what object, and who it belongs to without fishing .. that would interest me. With ZAG, at some point you have to ask the participant what the last number of their age is..REALLY?! lol. AND, ZAG is just a guessing trick with some MATH involved. Using Zodiac signs to find the age of someone seems very interesting, but it's not astonishing to me because you're asking too many questions of the person you're trying to guess the age of. Back to the drawing board. ((and I never got my $10 Penguin Cash))

Not worth it Report this review
Verified buyer Pro Privacy ON (login to see reviewer names) on June 17th, 2019
I basically got this for free after the $10 certificate. I wish I could give it a good review but unfortunately I can't.
First, I hate when you have to add numbers (especially with a calculater) to reach an age. The problem with THIS trick is it only allows you to calculate the last digit of a person's age. You have to 'guess' the first number by how old a person looks. And the caveat from her...if you don't know...be kind and guess the lower age. So, based on that, this trick is not fool-proof.

Excellent Report this review
Verified buyer Pro Privacy ON (login to see reviewer names) on June 28th, 2019
Simple, and a perfect opener for engaging your spectator. I love the idea of going into a magic square routine from this point. And Tori is awesome at explaining the (very easy) math. And I'm terrible at math. It doesn't matter - don't let that cause you concern. 5 stars.

Not deceptive Report this review
Verified buyer Pro Privacy ON (login to see reviewer names) on June 16th, 2019
The method is WAY TOO basic. Unless you perform only for very low IQ individuals, it's just not strong enough. I thought I was going to learn a clever mathematical method, but this is just too basic. Disappointed.

Dee Christopher Adds Value Report this review
Verified buyer Pro Privacy ON (login to see reviewer names) on June 25th, 2019
This is pretty disappointing. It is very obviously mathematical, and rather easy to backtrack and most moderately intelligent viewers will see it as add something, subtract the same thing and bingo, there's what you started with. Tori's attempts at disguise are pretty poor - "there are four seasons in a year and twelve months in a year so go ahead and add four hundred and twelve to your number" ...please! Or "Pisces is a water sign, and there are five letters to spell water, so add five to your number."
The idea of getting an age from a birthsign is a good idea - but the presentation must be subtle. If you buy this you will need to come up with a much better cover story than Tori offers. Normally the main value of a download is in the routine rather than the secret. This certainly isn't true here. And if you just want the secret then simply watch the trailer twice, then think.
There is a bonus, a pdf by Dee Christopher, which offers keywords for the Zodiac signs and suggestions for their use in a short cold reading to give purpose to this trick. This bonus pdf is good, valuable information if you are a beginner mentalist. Buy it for this.
Also read the other reviews. One reviewer suggests that this can be used as a lead into a Magic Square which reveals the Age. Brilliant! That is the way I intend to go.
So with that reviewer's generous freebie and the Dee Christopher bonus I think you can justify buying this just to confirm the details.

Lots of possibilities Report this review
Verified buyer Pro Privacy ON (login to see reviewer names) on June 18th, 2019
This is the second item I have purchased by Tori, I am becoming a fan of her easy to understand maths methods. Although you need to go over it (at least I did) a few times and apply a small amount of memory, it has lots of applications. If you plan to use it to lead into a reading you will need to know how to do readings first, although a brief PDF is included to get you on your way.

The only downside is at one point you have to make an educated guess and you could be wrong if you are it will throw your answer off, but I only claim 80% accuracy so it still works for me. Another reason to be good at reading people. You can recover by saying the person acts younger than they actually are.

I am not a maths guy at all, but love maths effects and this fits my criteria for easy, effective and applicable. The tutorial is brief but gives you all you need to know.
