Imagine you meet a stranger and within a few minute you know her zodiac sign, Chinese zodiac sign, exact birth-date and birth year, without writing anything down. That's Zodino.

It's super easy: You don't need to learn new skills. Forget about progressive anagrams or lip reading. The gimmicks do all the hard work for you.
And they pack as small as a few business cards for the street performance and can fill stadium screens if you perform on bigger stages. All gimmicks are provided as PDF-files and are easily assembled using simple household items.

What's great:
- Your participant just needs to focus her mind using the provided gimmicks. It's that simple for her.
- No complex mathematics
- No branching anagrams or speech techniques
- No stooges or fishing
- No sleight of hands
- No new skill to learn
- No set-up required
- Instant reset
- Works fully surrounded (100% angle proof)
- Works for multiple people in the same group
- Gimmicks are openly handled by participants
- Suitable even for beginners in mentalism

The secret is deeply engineered into the gimmick. So, don't worry about participants' inspection. The participants even hold the gimmicks in their hands during the performance.

Gimmicks are provided in 8 world languages: English, German, French, Spanish, Italian, Russian, Japanese and Chinese, since zodiac signs have different names in different countries.

PROFESSIONALS: This is a field tested multi-phase routine with the killer ending of revealing the exact bith-date including the year. What's more personal and touching than the revelation of your exact birth-date?

I can't remember if I've ever written a review before, but I definitely can't pass up the opportunity to do so on Zodino!!
The concept is simple, and simply genius! I can't wait to perform it!!
In addition to the awesome trick itself, Andreas provides 10-star product support! PROMPT replies to my questions!! I even asked him if he could provide a slightly modified version of the gimmick to cover unique performance situations, and he didn't hesitate to provide it. It's now on the Bonus Material section of his website for those who purchase the effect. It's obvious he wants you to have the best experience using the effect. He's covered EVERY detail, and has even provide EXTRA materials to allow for parlor or even stage presentations.
Looking for SOLID VALUE for your magic $$$?? Without question... You'll get it with Zodino!!!

I'm not sure Report this review
Verified buyer Pro Privacy ON (login to see reviewer names) on December 7th, 2015
This DVD deserves 4 stars for sheer effort, but as a mental effect I am not sure how convincing is the method. Actually this may vary for the country in which you are performing. I grew up in Britain during a period when every magic box contained the Age Cards, and when they were frequent give-aways in comics, and they still appear regularly in childrens' books. Consequently anything that uses the same principle needs to be very cleverly concealed. I feel that this is just not the case here. It needs something more subtle than misleadingly calling them business cards. I didn't buy into the routine's justification for the process, discarding etc. and because I am uncomfortable I feel this will transmit to my audience member.
The actual details of the working, and the construction of the various paper gimmicks is done with true german thoroughness. One cannot fault the effort that as been put into this.
There has also been obvious effort been put into the actual shooting of the video - a little too obvious. The use of an overhead camera for the constructional illustration is excellent, the repetitive cutting between virtually identical shots was painful.
The bonus material and the suggested variations were generous. There is no doubt that Andreas wants to please and makes every effort to do so I just wish all this effort had been applied to a less familiar basic method.
Now I do not think the method so flawed that people will know how you do the trick, but I do feel that the necessary "procedure" of this method will ring bells, in the minds of some, sufficient for them to think of this as a magic trick which is not the desired response for the mentalist.

It's a bit fiddly in its execution using the four cards but the technique is ingenious and the markings are undetectable. Personally, I would rather not use any props at all, as in cold reading. Because English is not Dante's first language, listening to his instructions is like wading through wet cement and I almost fell asleep a couple of times. Still, the system was well thought out and I will probably use it.

Great explanation and an effect that I can use
anywhere, any time thanks to the small size of gimmicks. Unlike many
other effects this resets immediately and can be used on several people
in the same group. And it really works! I also like the fact that the
service extends beyond the moment of download: There is additional stuff
in the bonus section of the website and; Andreas quickly replies to questions asked by email."

I can't wait for his other effect Tarino....

Awesome Effect(s)!! Report this review
Verified buyer Pro Privacy ON (login to see reviewer names) on November 26th, 2015
First of all, I must say that I've rarely seen such attention to detail in a product!!

Indeed, Andreas does not just explain the method behind his effect, he actually teaches each and every subtlety and provides you with ABSOLUTELY EVERYTHING you need to both practise and perform the routines in many different environments!

He definitely went above and beyond to make sure his explanations were clear so that get as much as we can from the effects. Hence the extremely detailed videos and handouts.

I personally loved the main Zodino routine because it's totally flexible. I can especially see myself using it in at tables while doing readings or even in more informal/impromptu situations. Plus, after watching one of his performance clips, I can totally see it working on stage too!

There are different layers of possible revelations (Zodiac sign, Chinese star sign, birth date), and the performer is totally free to choose how to present them.

Overall, the gimmicks are very ingenious and the effect does NOT require ANY memory work whatsoever! Andreas simply did all the work for us!

Great job! ;)

Amazing routine, just amazing Report this review
Verified buyer Pro Privacy ON (login to see reviewer names) on November 23rd, 2015
Many people are interested in reading their horoscopes. When telling a stranger the zodiac sign seemingly out of the blue it seems to be something really powerful. But if you can add-in the season the stranger was born, the astrological element, the weekday of the last birthday it becomes unbelievable to almost everybody. And then if you finish it off with the exact birth date and year it becomes diabolical! This routine comes to that level!
Usually effects in the area of zodiac and birthday divination build on mathematics or complex patterns. This one is different. I believe most school children can easily learn the routine. And still the secret is woven deeply into several layers of protection. Yesterday I had the chance to apply the passport variation, which doesn't require any business cards. I took the steps of the routine and revealed the weekday of my participant's last birthday. Then, by using the included cold reading primer I derived the astrological element and the season and concluded in the zodiac sign. That was fascinating. But the climax of the routine was still ahead of us: telling this stranger the exact birth date including the year! Jaws dropped!
I love it!!!

Impressive! Report this review
Verified buyer Pro Privacy ON (login to see reviewer names) on November 19th, 2015
Very clever method. During the routine I'm always far ahead of my spectator. Wow! And all the revelations are so personal: It's their astrological elements, their zodiacs and their birthdays.
Unfortunately I could not train the routine with friends and family as I know their birthdays already.
The gimmicks are really small. So I always have them with me. And they also provide gimmicks in my language. Great! That makes it much easier.
I love the fact that you also get parlor and stage gimmicks extra free. And it's nice that he explains how to combine the method with other mentalism acts. So, I'll try out new variations on the weekend.
Really a great trick at parties or any place where you meet new people and want to leave a long lasting impression. Easily 5 stars!

Impressive and without comparison! Report this review

An impressive routine for Zodiac divination. Easy to use and yet providing a multiphase routine that has truly amazed my audiences. When presented to certain people it can be so powerful that they might actually believe you have special powers.

It's important that you don't miss what some other reviewers might have missed: Zodino serves two purposes: 1) acquisition of the birth date information and 2) revelation of all the related aspects. Both parts are solved in a clever way. Even if the first step is not your cup of tea Andreas mentions several alternative alleys to walk down and achieve the same. The spectator will mainly experience the second part, which is the revelation of the four aspects: astrological element, star sign, Chinese star sign and finally the exact birthday. This revelation step is so clever because you are well ahead of the spectator and have all the information laid out in front of you while the spectator only sees an interesting zodiac circle with pictures of all the star signs.

What you get is overwhelming: Gimmicks in all possible sizes and many languages. The included bonus effects are nice but are not on the same great level as the revelation method.

The video covers all aspects and is absolutely well understandable. There was actually not a single moment where I had any difficulty in understanding him. For me, the mix of theory and real life performances is easy to follow and kept me interested through the entire video.

All in all, this is a top notch, very powerful trick accompanied by a great explanation video!

Very Good !! Report this review
Verified buyer Pro Privacy ON (login to see reviewer names) on August 3rd, 2017
I have not used it yet on audience (in fact I bought it only this afternoon) so my review for the moment is only for the download,
However I wanted to give 5 stars for the following reasons: one of the few effects in Multilingual, the Gimmick's PDF is really nice and you can reprint when it's ruined (it's never nice to use old and worn gimmicks), usually I do not Like buying effects in download, I like having my dvd and my original gimmick, but this time it was a good choice, the instructions are understandable even for those who like me speak little English.
Nice work, thank you very much
Andreas!
Grazie !!!
