I would go into more detail about why, but have done so twice before over the last few weeks and not
seen it posted, despite other reviews going up... so I'm assuming Penguin don't like what I had to
say about it, despite no exposure and no naughty language. I will be very amused to see whether
this goes up or not, and if it doesn't, will adjust my trust of the ratings here accordingly.
So, a three word quote from Nancy Reagan will suffice..."Just say no."

Boldly a GRReat trick with time and a wristwatch. This fooled my friends badly. So now I WILL Be
performing it for my IBM Ring in Cincy, and my other Ring in Middletown (both in Ohio). I love this
kind of effect. a Double Fooler at best. Thanks Luke for this, much appreciated.
I've performed this a few dozen times on stage and at parties and it's a good trick but what makes
it a great trick is the presentation you give it. so it is what you make it. Criss Angel also
performed this very good on his tv show.
I don't understand where all the bad reviews are coming from. Luke is a professional performer and
he uses this trick. It's VERY bold and you will have some trouble practicing it, but once you get it
and understand the psychology, you will be out and performing it.
This isn't much of a
street trick, nor is it really a "stage" trick but if you have 200 people, it can play really
nicely. I personally wouldn't perform this as a stand alone trick though. You can add it to a
hypnotism act maybe with 2 people on stage.
The special item might be around your house,
but like the ad said, it can cost you from 1-2 bucks. But you do need a certain type of watch, but
that can only cost maybe 20 bucks depending where you look.
Not for everyone
This effect is very good, but the method need WORK .
construct a good character and work in your pattern
But for the serious student of Mentalism ,
this piece is excellent .
Good Tools and performance tips
A coincidence effect that is quick
and impossible in the audience point of view.
I purchased this effect at the beginning of my magic career and I must admit initially I was very
disappointed. But after mulling it over for a few days I figured I may as well practice it and at
least try it out. Low and behold it killed! I still perform this effect today and love every minute
of it! Buy This!!
If your persona is not bold or confident, by no means should you
purchase this effect.
The truth I actually just use this for the time force. Its a good trick anyway but its really nice
to have the ability to force things other than cards which spectators tend to suspect. Definately
grt it for that. By the way, THE INK MAY RUB OFF so make sure you have an out Luke is wrong about
This is an incredibly devious routine...one which will probably not be performed as much as it
should. This is one of the most direct effects imaginable. One spectator thinks of a time, another
sets a watch to a random time, the times match. It is that direct, and that is exactly as it appears
to the audience.
Some people will not like this effect, but the ones who are willing to
use this secret will be highly rewarded.
the idea is a common one used in mentalism and can be found in many different sources. while jermays
use of it is refreshing, i suggest you find it many different mentalist sources. if you are a
beginner mentalist, this method is a little too bold. need audience control
this is the perfect routine for... just about anywhere. i bought it about 10 minutes ago, watched it
all, found this item in my room, setup (took about 4 seconds) and practiced. i was a bit hesitant
since i have a strange watch. but nope. worked fine. buy this if you own a watch. oh one more thing,
you need to have a good script if you do this in a stage setting or even school. you need to setup
under their noses without them knowing. but for a table hopping, its fine.
