You place a simple paper envelope on the table containing small metal token. You now introduce five ESP cards, which you openly mix. The packet is given to a spectator, who is asked to turn the cards face down and select any one they wish. The selected card is placed aside, or in the spectator’s pocket. No one – including the spectator – knows what symbol has been selected.

The token is now removed from the envelope – an ESP symbol is displayed boldly printed on one side. The spectator removes his card to reveal – the exact same symbol!


  • Only one Token is used and it is in the envelope from the beginning of the routine.

  • There is no force, any symbol can be selected and it will be different each time.

  • The spectator can mix the cards.

  • Only five cards are used. No sleights.

  • Resets in seconds.

  • Totally examinable.


Additional handlings are covered including, a method that uses a single business card instead of the symbols. An excellent approach that puts your business card in the spectator’s hands to keep!

Comes complete with all necessary props and detailed instructional DVD with additional ideas and insights.

Direct and diabolical close up mentalism!

Pros- I really like the method here, very easy and clean. The presentation ideas are ok, leaves a lot of room for your own presentation.

Cons- Can only be done with those five symbols and there are lots of ways to accomplish a 1 in 5 reveal. Also, the gimmick will not hold up to close scrutiny. So for reasons it gets 3 stars.

A fun little puzzle of a trick Report this review
Verified buyer Pro Privacy ON (login to see reviewer names) on June 6th, 2014
This is a fun trick to perform. Sometimes the gimmick sticks though and you might have to invest in a stronger m--- to reset it. Otherwise it's fun.

Quality Product Report this review
Verified buyer Pro Privacy ON (login to see reviewer names) on December 15th, 2013
I loved this gimmick and concept. Bought two of them instantly. The only downside of this as mentioned is that you can only perform the prediction effect with the 5 ESP symbols. However, because of the way this is present and the way the gimmicks work, you can do it extremely cleanly. The quality of the gimmicks is also top-notch in my opinion. It should last you for several years to be honest.

Overall, if you're looking for a clean/fair way to do an ESP predition effect, I would suggest getting this.

YUCK! Too gimmicky!!! Report this review
Pro Privacy ON (login to see reviewer names) on July 8th, 2017
Okay, bought this based on the description, and it was a mistake. With all of the great magic out there, it's not worth taking the risk of doing a trick like this that screams GIMMICK! The chip has no reason to look like it does. There's also a reason this piece of junk has been available in the "open box" e.g. "returned" section over and over:(

I've been doing magic for 25 years now and I don't care how it's handled, the chip looks suspicious...which then makes it look like everything else you do is done w suspicious things or calls for people to look at things w much more scrutiny, as opposed to when you perform with more natural things and they focus on the effect.

It doesn't look natural that any chip would be made to look like this. The effect and payoff isn't that great that it's worth casting a shadow over your other effects because this one looks fishy. It's the kind of thing that gives magic a bad rap. Spend your money on something else!

Easy for novice/ameuter Report this review
Pro Privacy ON (login to see reviewer names) on June 14th, 2017
I do magic as a hobby and typically do simple card tricks and expanding to gimmicked tricks. I was worried at pulling off the slight but this is super easy. Some reviews stated that the gimmick will not hold up to close scrutiny. I would disagree. Just like all the lectures if listened to...I do not focus on the gimmick or invite people by saying..."Look at everything." I casually leave it on the table. I have had people handle it with no issues. I would definitely get this. Especially for someone that may work at a restaurant and does walk around magic.

Very Good But.... Report this review
Pro Privacy ON (login to see reviewer names) on November 4th, 2015
Wonderful effect !! the idea of the chips is not new.
However why complicate your life? very simply
you can use the cards marked: ESP of Piatnik
(if some magician old man like me has yet)
or mark those supplied, so you skip many steps
and it focuses on Chip.
Simplify,Simplify,Simplify.
