For some performers, Mentalism with cards is a touchy subject. Some won’t use cards at all fearing that their audience will equate them with magic tricks.

Others say you're simply using a deck of cards (something everyone is familiar with) to perform your mental tests and that people will understand that.

Dan believes, as always, it comes down to presentation. Some of the items you're about to learn are purely mental, simply magical, or a bit of both.

First, Dan uses a special set of "future goggles" that allow me to see a couple of choices before they are made.

Then, Dan teaches you quite possibly the most famous two-deck routine, "You Do As I Do," featuring a synchronicity between you and your spectator.

Next, you learn to use your skill at isolating the thoughts of three people as you discover which card each has chosen from their random poker hands.

Then, Dan takes a more interesting approach to a mathematical trick by discovering a card using someone's personal information.

And you'll experience just how blurry the line between magic and mentalism becomes by simply placing a card in your pocket.

Then, Dan displays a family history of predictive powers by linking his birthday celebration to his spectator's personal information.

Next, you learn a way to enlist the aid of your deck's least understood resident as you put the thoughtful joker through his paces.

Then, to show off your truly remarkable sensitivity, you reach in and pluck out multiple signed cards which have been thoroughly mixed in a hat.

And finally, Dan gives you a nice variation of the previous hat plucking trick that allows you to spell out any message you desire.

So remember, when it comes to Mental Card Mysteries, only you can decide if they are the right choice for you and your audiences.

Tricks Included:
- Al Baker’s “Twin Soul” Card Prediction
- You Do As I Do
- A Baffling Discovery
- Thought Location
- The Mystic Card Clock Dial
- The Thoughtful Joker
- A “Sense of Touch” Discovery
- Henry Hardin’s Cards in Hat Discovery

Akward and a bit emberassing Report this review

This is up till now the worst lessons I have seen being a subscriber. The teaching is fine and I love the usual entusiasm that Dan shows for these - I would call - beginner-tricks.
But these effects are too obvious and the way that Dan needs to have his hands in the pocket (looking very akward and unrelaxed) in a posture that he never has) while the spectator names the number of a card in "card in pocket" really makes this trick, or performance, very bad in my view. The other effects seem weak and the spectators in the live performance look unimpressed.
A lot of it also takes way too long time compared to the quality and level of the effects. The presentation cant hold it.


I hope to see some high level performance by Dan again next lesson. I was very close to unsubscribing today so I really hope for it as the other stuff as been very inspiring.

In my view these tricks are what makes some people fear card tricks as they are long, a lot about counting and memorizing cards and simple card revealing.

Good lesson Report this review
Verified buyer Pro Privacy ON (login to see reviewer names) on January 4th, 2015
The Al Baker effect is a good one that is easy to do an completely impromptu but still has the "feel" of real mentalism.

Things are written down before choices and actions are made,and eventhough the method is easy to execute, it is not concievable to "regular" intellects because how did you know their number and because as mentioned earlier it is written down before they make their choice.

You can borrow everything you need as well. No sleigths either but there is a very, very simple "move" that reqires a second or two of misdirection. Luckily since you are about to predict the future you just tell them to look into your eyes or something along those lines and do it while they are looking at you...They won`t know the better. You can potentially utilize pinky break to mask it even more

I`d say that one is a good reason to get this lesson.

Other effects are good too, but some are a bit long (for my taste anyway...)

A real magician can make magic at the drop of a top hat. (LOL)

I love the way Dan adds a narrative to everything. Important! Great places to take this for mentalism.
