Free Will trick Corbuzier/Elmwood

We all want to believe that we are in control. We want to believe that our decisions are our own. But maybe those are just beliefs....

You begin by removing a small piece of paper from a cloth bag and handing the bag to a helper.   You explain that you'd like their help in an experiment involving free will.  Your helper removes three wooden disks from the inside of the bag.  Each disk has a simple geometric shape on one side.  The helper mixes up the disks and then places them face down on the table.

The helper now chooses one disk for himself, one for the performer, and one to be put back in the bag.  The choices are always up to the helper and they may change their mind before they commit to the selections.

You now ask one final question to the helper, "Did you feel every choice you made was of your own free will?"  The helper responds, "Yes."  The helper now opens the piece of paper which has been on display before ANY choices were made and it explains with complete accuracy where each of the symbols is now located!

A terribly unnerving reminder that the choices we make may not always be our own!

Very Practical and Easy Report this review

I can't believe I'm the first person to review this. It is a very practical and easy to do effect. The method works well when presented correctly and you hear a lot of references to this trick by other creators. It is a good effect and a real good price. One downside is it is not the kind of thing you want to do for someone more than once. If you get this, I recommend a trick called Espionage because the methods are different so you can do them in place of repeating Free Will for the same person later on or do Espionage and Free Will one after the other for a bunch of routines that are self working. I've had Free Will for many years and recommend it easily.

Nothing to add to this one that hasn't been said before...this is one of the most diabolical methods for a mentalism routine I've ever seen!

I love this effect...simple and easy to do, but still leaves spectator puzzled as to what just happened. Takes just a few minutes to familiarize yourself with the handling, then you're set to go..no sleights or misdirection to worry about. Though not repeatable to the same audience, this is powerful to those who you choose to perform for...just buy it, see for yourself !!

Wonderful Report this review

I'm not a fan of mentalism effects...but as usual, there are exceptions to every rule.

The effect and routine:

Absolutely wonderful. Depending on your personality, you can sell this routine in a mystic aura atmosphere...or just demonstrate "influencing" a spectator's choice in a more comic non-serious manner. Either way, the presentation for this gem of an effect is crucial, so better make it worthwhile.

The props:

Beautiful discs (just a little larger than a dollar coin), made from wood with smooth surfaces (no splinters), with beautifully drawn shapes. The cloth bag serves its purpose as both convenient storage, and a pretty display when presenting the wooden discs. As for the message, the one provided can be used, or if your imagination dominates you, have the message printed in different fonts(perhaps ancient writings for example).

Overall, an absolutely astonishing effect of mentalism; not too complicated, and its simplicity can be obscured and seem impossible with the presentation....make sure you work on that! ;)
