"This effect is baffling, intriguing and impressive. It is brilliant in every way, and you can carry it with you always. All you need to do is tuck a small (thin) packet of cards in your wallet, bag, purse, pocket or laptop case, and you're always good to go. You can perform it anywhere, it will always entertain people and it will always leave them comprehensively baffled." - Ian Rowland

You won't believe this reputation-making MIRACLE from professional mind-reader Phill Smith. It's practically self-working and looks absolutely IMPOSSIBLE.

And because nothing needs to be written down, it seems even MORE IMPOSSIBLE. Plus it means you can perform it ANYWHERE.. no pen needed.

PROFESSIONALS: No hypnosis, NLP or forcing. Stegosaurus is a pure joy to perform, and audiences LOVE IT. It's instantly repeatable and takes up hardly any pocket space.

Watch demo #2 for a full uncut performance!

Great effect and Phil is a Great teacher. (Thank you Phil)He makes it easy to understand and also includes a PDF file with everything simply explained in 12 pages! Also includes other sets of words in a "Horror" movie theme (Great for Halloween shows)and explains to create your own "themed" words. Hats off also to the Penguin crew for your quality video production/s.

Great and well thought out routine Report this review
Verified buyer Pro Privacy ON (login to see reviewer names) on November 1st, 2015
Stegosaurus is a very fun routine to perform. The video and PDF are both clearly explained and it gives a great new routining to an old concept; Phill has come up with a series of phases that build up and help cancel out methods by the time you're finished performing. At first I was a bit worried that this wouldn't be easy to translate into Spanish, but I was able to do it on the first day, it was a lot easier than I imagined and Phill was very helpful too. Get this and add a nice routine to your arsenal. Also, try to figure out the title, a very nice concept indeed.

Terrific Effect Report this review
Verified buyer Pro Privacy ON (login to see reviewer names) on November 29th, 2015
I love this trick! Phill Smith is an excellent teacher and seems to anticipate all the questions I had ahead of time. I buy lots of Magic from Penguin and when I come across a magician who has developed a workable, reliable and fascinating effect my next thought is "so what else have they developed". I can't wait to see what else Phill has up his sleeve, no pun intended!

Really good Report this review
Verified buyer Pro Privacy ON (login to see reviewer names) on November 14th, 2015
A truly great routine. Its already perfect and you can still add your own style to each phase and customize it for your needs. Phill is really generous and if you have any problem iam sure he will help you. Its deceptive! its solide! its customizable! it might fool and entertain anybody! I love it and you will too

Extremely Clever! Report this review
Verified buyer Pro Privacy ON (login to see reviewer names) on October 30th, 2015
I love the method and Phil explains everything very clearly.
What really sells it for me is how flexible it is. I have already created 3 more custom word lists on the first day!
One of the word lists was a set of 1900 five letter first names that I will need for the routine I am putting together.
Phil was incredibly helpful with this list and adapted my names within minutes after contacting him. You can't beat a response like that!
I am working on a stage sized version of the props right now. The new lists I have created will let me do a slightly different ending which I think will really add to the impact.
Once I test everything out I'll send a copy of what I have done to Phil in case someone else can use what I have done.
Great work Phil!

Really well done Report this review
Verified buyer Pro Privacy ON (login to see reviewer names) on March 28th, 2017
Spectators get led down a natural path that seems more conversational than anything. It isn't a "Wanna see a trick?" style effect since it starts off more like a game before adding a surprising little bit of "wow" factor in the second phase, culminating in a completely inexplicable finale. It builds up so naturally people won't even realize its a trick until the last phase, and by then they'll be begging you to pull it off. Just make sure you have a good story to go with it - there are so many believable directions you can take this.

For the record, I bought one of those $1.00 newsprint word/number puzzle books, giving the visual suggestion that the game is innocent enough. Instead of tidy looking index cards, I am using 2 torn 8.5x11 pages to make it look more impromptu and capitalize on The Jerkz hack for the 3rd phase.

The accompanying PDF is great, and the inclusion of the (massive) word list makes the trick endlessly customizable to your own style and personality. I will be making several wordlists so that I have something for every occasion.

PS: I saw some people moaning about not getting pre-printed cards. Why would you want this to look like a gimmicky trick when hand-written cards is such a huge convincer here? Think of the visuals - *nobody* carries professionally printed lists of random words and letters around that conveniently work in a magical trick yet serve absolutely no other purpose...

Simply Brilliant Report this review
Verified buyer Pro Privacy ON (login to see reviewer names) on January 3rd, 2016
I love this effect! It is so much fun to perform. Phill has also provided a huge list of over 8,000 words, in English, that can be used to create a variety of lists to personalize performances. He also has lists in many other languages.

In addition to my previous review:

Level one enhancement - You lay out the word list in order. Reveal the word in the normal way. 2nd routine the same as in the lesson. 3rd time let them shuffle both "decks", they peek and choose the word from the held close word list. You look at the backs of the five cards... you don't have the word list in sight. In a black 3x5 leather/vinyl book that holds paper that you are going to write the word down is the list - perhaps black printed on gray that isn't obvious. Select from there and write it down. Present the word. Better?

Level two - memorize all the words in groups. Difficult, but not impossible. Then the word list is viewed once by both them and you when you deal them for the first routine.

Great Effect. Not the usual bit of magic. Report this review
Verified buyer Pro Privacy ON (login to see reviewer names) on December 20th, 2015
My criteria as an ok amateur is that the magic should be different, unexpected, not difficult, and run for more than a few seconds. Stegasaurus certainly "does the trick".

Phil mentioned incorporating this with another trick and Binary from Rick Lax came to mind. It appears to be super-human memorization in a few parts, takes about as much skill as Stegasaurus, but fits perfectly to create a routine. The Penn and Teller demo is just amazing, but it still impresses as a table version that I can do. Watch it on Penguin Magic.

I haven't looked at the pdf yet, but it would be great to have a set of words oriented toward real estate brokers, restaurants, lawyers, etc. for those of us in sales or support.

I'm very impressed with his method of using this principle. I will certainly use it in my act. It's worth the price.
