Mind to Matter (Mind Power Deck by John Kennedy) presented by Rick Lax (CARDS INCLUDED) People will SWEAR you've actually read their minds. Concentrate and reveal thought-of cards with amazing accuracy! ALL NEW PRESENTATION BY RICK LAX. HIGHLY RECOMMENDED.
In stock: usually ships within 24 hours!
Spread a deck of cards face up on the table and ask a spectator to look at any card. No one else could possibly know the card because she never touches or names it. You concentrate, then slowly but surely read her mind and name the card!
You can repeat it immediately and it will become even more baffling. In fact, even if several people simultaneously look at different cards you can read each person's mind and name his card correctly every time!
John Kennedy's Mind Power Deck is so eerie, so impossible, your audience will be convinced that you possess a sixth sense.
Why is it so good? John Kennedy collaborated with master magician and mentalist Tim Conover to create the ultimate mind reading deck. It can be shown as a normal deck of fifty two cards and even be handled by a spectator without them noticing anything unusual. Yet you'll be able to "read their minds" correctly every time. And there's no system to memorize because the deck does the work for you. You'll absolutely love this trick!The following clip of Derren Brown is for inspiration only. We have no idea how he does the following trick, but you can achieve something similar with Rick Lax's Mind to Matter.

Good deck Report this review
Pro Privacy ON (login to see reviewer names) on December 27th, 2010
Similar in concept to the Mastermind deck, but each has its pros and cons. With this deck, you can repeat the effect or get multiple people involved; with the Mastermind deck, you can't do either, but you don't need to do any fishing to know what card the spectator has chosen. Depending upon your presentation preferences, either or both may be suitable for you.
Some quibbles: the suggestion in the documentation that you can hand this deck to a spectator and let them thumb through it to make a selection, is absurd. No amount of audience management can prevent the inevitable disaster that will eventually ensue if you hand the deck to a spectator and let them look through it.
As for the reference to the Derren Brown routine, don't feel as if you're missing anything by not having it. No, you can NOT deduce the card without fishing; the routine involves tossing out a couple of early guesses that are thinly-disguised as "subtleties", but they're only guesses. More times than not, you will be wrong. And frankly, tossing out guesses that the spectator may recognize as cards that were physically near his chosen card, opens up a huge can of worms that you'd rather leave undisturbed.
Bottom line: if you like mentalism with cards, and don't mind routines that require a little fishing, and you have the presentation skills to pull it off, you can really mystify people with this deck.

very good Report this review
Verified buyer Pro Privacy ON (login to see reviewer names) on December 16th, 2010
if you're into mentalism or want just a great trick to be able to do for up to about 4, possibly even 5 spectators( i dont recommend 5) and 'read' their minds one by one then go ahead and grab this. very clever idea. very clean. the deck is gimmicked but you can actually show ALOT of all of the cards. i really like that about this. i have the mastermind deck u have to be a bit careful with that one but this is a jewel. so good.
i recommend this for anyone. i have many many tricks that stay in my draw. b4 all of my shows i put all my 'stuff' in a ziplock baggy. i like to travel light. some coins, universal impression, sharpie, reg. deck, loops, business cards, smoke, invisible deck,powerball 60 ,and of course the mind power deck. no lie here man thats it.
great improvement!!! Report this review

i had this deck years ago and unfortunately it got tossed out(pun)...first because i was a cardman move monkey & this was just too easy...second because the cards were to foreign to the average participants eyes...but both of those things have changed...myself & the deck...now on red 808 Bicycle stock(which is what i normally carry)...this effect fries minds...its incredibly easy to do, which allows you to focus on performance & make that connection with the audience...best done for 3 or 4 people simultaneously...can be done on a table or in the hands...and to a great extent, "examinable"...this is well worth the funds...mix it up with the Gazzo tossed out deck from time to time as well as "out of site, out of mind" by Vernon and your reputation will be SOLID...
Exceptional Trick!!! Report this review
Verified buyer Pro Privacy ON (login to see reviewer names) on December 4th, 2010
Granted, $40.00 is a lot to pay for a deck of cards, but this trick is solid and it's a sure winner! I carry this deck with me everywhere and it's a hit every time!
I'm not a working professional magician...just a guy who loves to perform magic for my family and friends. And this trick has made its way right into my number one slot!!
It's as easy to perform as it appears on the video. I love the fact that this deck is available in a Bicycle back deck. It makes the trick that much more unbelievable. The concept is simple, yet brilliant!
I highly recommend this deck for professionals and/or amateur magicians. It's that good, and as the saying goes, "It's a reputation maker." I've performed it for so many friends, family members, and coworkers, and the reactions are almost always the same..."How in the HELL did you do that??!!"
Add this to your cart and you won't be disappointed!!
Mind Power vs Radar? Report this review
Pro Privacy ON (login to see reviewer names) on September 30th, 2008
This is a terrific effect and highly recommended.
HOWEVER, if you are considering purchasing this product, also check out Richard Osterlind's "Radar Deck" (also available from Penguin). I personally prefer the radar deck, largely because you do not need a table, which makes it perfect for a walk-around or street setting.
Having said that, they are both terrific effects, so research both before making your decision! =)

Pure Mentalism Report this review
Verified buyer Pro Privacy ON (login to see reviewer names) on July 19th, 2003
This is the perfect mentalist effect. It is possible (and I do) to show every single card different, (because they are) This trick is (in my opinion) easier with several people. Go ahead and watch the video, you confirm the mental impressions that you read, and then reveal the cards one by one. The reason that this trick is not for beginners is because the performer has to sell the fact that he can read minds, but on a scale of 1 to 10, 10 being the most difficult, i would say this is about a 2. For me, it was worth the buy, because it does its job perfectly.
Best deck out there Report this review

The best deck out there.People will really think your reading their minds.always get a strong reaction.
Classic :) Report this review
Pro Privacy ON (login to see reviewer names) on October 22nd, 2009
This is a great mind reading tool. Combine it with Derren Brown's effect (smoke), and you have a cult in the making :)
The coolest part is if you leave the normal cards out, then do the trick, read their mind, and then show that there card was never in the deck at all, they were just seeing things!
a little expensive Report this review
Pro Privacy ON (login to see reviewer names) on October 10th, 2004
this trick kicks ***! the only thing is is that it is a little expensive for the trick. but the trick still rocks. you can spread the cards out, read their minds, then spread out the deck again and show that there are NO duplicates.
Great Concept, Poorly Executed... Report this review
Verified buyer Pro Privacy ON (login to see reviewer names) on April 6th, 2015
Maybe I just got the one deck that's defective.
First let me say I LOVE the concept of the range force,
and I had made my own MPD years before I decided to buy one.
I figured that showing them all different did not add much.
And my experience confirmed that, in a trick where the spec simply looks at the deck and thinks of a card, without even touching it, nobody ever suspects the cards. So there's no point proving to them that all the cards are different (unless you're telegraphing something).
However, I didn't want to bother making another one, so I just bought it.
Unfortunately there is a problem.
I'm not sure whether all the Mind Power Decks are like this, or mine is defective.
Instead of fanning like a new Bicycle deck, some groups of cards clump together.
Not only this, but they do so in such a way as to expose the secret.
When this deck is ribbon spread, the KD sticks out, and the next KD sticks out.
So the spectator can see a smooth spread of tightly fanned/ribboned cards, then a KD,
then another smooth spread of the same cycle, then the next KD is also over-exposed.
The ribbon of cards is not uniform.
This accentuates the nature of the method.
This trick deck need do only ONE thing, mechanically. Spread evenly.
When I pressure fan these cards,
or ribbon spread them, 4 to 5 cards usually nest together.
If you know the method, you know that this spoils the illusion you're trying to achieve.
