This is your entry point to character divination!
Your participant secretly defines her personal priority list of life values without writing anything down just using the Tarino life value cards. You do palm reading or take her into a story while looking into her eyes and thereafter you reveal her very personal list of life values - with 100% accuracy.

Palm reading and different cold reading stories are illustrated in the explanation video using real life performances.
Eight Tarino life value cards allow for more than 40,000 different priority lists of life values. That's 40,000 different outcomes of this effect. Still, you get it right every single time.

The Tarino cards are made from PDF templates that are included in the download. They are quickly assembled using simple household items.
Gimmick templates are provided in 8 world languages: English, German, French, Spanish, Italian, Russian, Japanese and Chinese, showing the life values in your language.
In addition, you get customizable gimmicks that can be customized to any language in the world.

What's great:
- 100% accurate, each and every time!
- No new skill to learn
- No branching anagrams or speech techniques
- No mathematics involved
- Nothing needs to be written down
- No sleight of hands
- No stooges or fishing
- 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 the participants
- Once the gimmicks are made they last for hundreds of performances
- The street gimmicks are as small as business cards and can be always with you.
- Suitable even for beginners in mentalism

The routine:
Take out eight cards each showing one important life value, such as 'health','love' or 'happiness'. Ask your participant to define her personal order of these life values by placing the cards face down in front of her in a line defining her personal priority list. The backs of the cards have no writing at all and are grey so that no-one can see through.
Explain her that there are thousands of possible ways to sort these life values and that virtually every one has a different priority regarding life values. This can be interpreted as someone's personal character key that makes them unique.
Then take your participant into a small story and reveal some of her character traits through cold reading or palm reading. Finally reveal her exact priority list of life values - 100% spot on.

During the performance the participant can freely handle the gimmicks and half a dozen performances included in the video download will be sufficient proof, that participants don't backtrack the secret as they are carried away by the routine.

For the mentalist it is super easy: You don't need to learn new skills. The gimmicks do all the hard work for you.
And they pack as small as a few business cards for the street performance. But we also provide gimmicks for parlor and stage that are distinguishable from the far. All gimmicks are provided as PDF-files and are easily assembled using simple household items.

What you'll receive:
1) Two video files covering two and a half hours of video explanations, real-life performances and bonus effects, including:
- Routine to reveal the priority list of life values
- Routine for simple visualization and cold reading
- Story-based routines, based on: 1) Fairytale Story, 2) Cube Story, 3) Strawberry Field Story
- Routine based on NLP
- Routine based on palm reading

2) PDF gimmick templates for easy and fast assembly using simple household items :

3) Additional PDF training material:

Great effect! Connecting... at is best! Report this review
Verified buyer Pro Privacy ON (login to see reviewer names) on December 20th, 2015
We all want to create a powerful connection with those we are preforming for, right?? Tarino accomplishes this! With Zodino, and now Tarino, Andreas is definitely showing his expertise in developing effects that hit HARD as a result of connecting with others. And Andreas covers EVERY detail VERY clearly, including material for parlor AND for stage. I look forward to performing this! Great value here! Highly recommend!

Love it Report this review

Great idea and execution. Easy to do. Basic fundamental idea and if you want to add your own twist as far as a reading long or short it's all ready for you.

Play the basic idea or stretch it out, I like this a lot.

Great effect, especially for house parties Report this review
Verified buyer Pro Privacy ON (login to see reviewer names) on December 20th, 2015
What I loved about Tarino is the fact that the result is different for
every participant. So you can perform it over and over again on the same
party. Other guests are interested in the priorities of your
participant, so you can involve them by guessing the life values of your
participant. Thereafter you reveal your skills and build a connection,
while jaws are dropping.
To make the gimmicks just takes about 20 minutes plus some time to let
the glue dry. That's absolutely ok for me as I can now use the gimmicks
nearly forever.
Two thumbs up for this great idea and the impact it creates.

I like it!, I can use it! Price was right! Report this review
Verified buyer Pro Privacy ON (login to see reviewer names) on January 31st, 2016
There are some similar methods out there for accomplishing this effect but the application in my experience is completely unique. Yes, there is a little A&C component to it that takes about 20 minutes. Andreas walks you through it in the video and what is provided via download, looks great, is well defined, and can be created in a variety of ways. One way not mentioned on the video is to use a box of photographic paper. I used 'Elite image'photo paper and it did take me several attempts to get what I wanted out of 'the cards'. Mostly sloppy A&C on my part. I found the photograph paper to make a better 'copy' for my needs, it creates a 'stiffer' card and one you can wipe clean easily when necessary. Any sloppy A&C can be removed with a razor blade or pocket knife. Personal choices. What is required for 'memory' is easy and a mnemonic of sorts is provided. It's helpful and you can create a cheat sheet to carry with you with the materials provided but if you do this a time or two, you won't need it. I often review such things prior to actual presentations. I found some aspects of the method a bit difficult to 'read' but two options are provided and one is 'easier' than the other. I made a set of each because lighting, or 'conditions' might make a moment to consider which set to use. I found the download for materials took a REALLY LONG time but this could be my computer. I like this for 'up close and personal' performances and personally would probably not use if from stage but for those who do such things, you will have what you need. Andreas demonstrates both. Honestly, I probably won't use this in every performance but rather, have it in among my 'tools' when 'reading' cards, Tarot, Palms, 'Personality Profiling' or plain 'Cold Reading'. In the course of an evening of such performances, especially repeating those things, this will be a handy tool in the box. As noted, you can do this one over and over and gain different outcomes. I would likely throw in something 'related' in between and Andreas alludes to this in the video. You can do it 'straight' as a 'character/personality reading, or tied to Palm Reading, Tarot or whatever. I will probably use it 'straight' and call it a form of 'personality distinction or describe it as a tool to help define personality characteristics unique to this spectator. Something else not mentioned on the video is you will find this easier if you are across from the spectator and you can keep your cards 'oriented' the same way as the spectator's, that's helpful. Sitting next to the spectator makes that easier still. Not essential but 'helpful'. Andreas demonstrates both on the video Not a difficult thing to 'manage. Just remember to keep the cards 'oriented'. I kept this from a 5 star only because of the difficulty with the download, the fact I am a little 'messy' in the A&C and the fact I won't use it in every performance but as noted, those are probably MY problems. Nice effect for performer and spectator, well presented to learn, 95% materials are 'good ones', provided in the download and the remaining 5% you probably have within reach!

Great product and customizeable too Report this review
Verified buyer Pro Privacy ON (login to see reviewer names) on January 16th, 2016
This is a great trick and it's clear from the gimmick alone (much less the instruction and distraction information which is clear and detailed) that he's put a lot of thought and care into this.

I also appreciate that you can customize this, since besides cards in many languages, you can also get cards with no language and add your own. Even better, because of the way it's printed, you can create your own cards if you're so inclined.

He also has a very clear mnemonic device, that reduces memorization (if you can call it that) to about 30 seconds.

Well done.

Beautiful Effect Report this review
Verified buyer Pro Privacy ON (login to see reviewer names) on January 16th, 2016
Brilliantly easy and brilliant reactions! Looks exactly like on the demo.
You'll be interacting with your spectators and not just performing. I really love this trick.
I also appreciate that the props are available in so many languages, including my language. Not just all languages jammed on one card, but special cards in my language and many other languages. That's really great generous.
One more thing: The third bonus effect is a real hidden gem! This is a master class routine on its own.
Bottom line: This is THE routine to connect with people on multiple levels added with incredible bonus material.

Under Promised, Over Delivered! Report this review
Verified buyer Pro Privacy ON (login to see reviewer names) on December 30th, 2015
Rarely do I find tricks that promise less than they deliver. With this one I expected quite a bit from the ad copy but was overwhelmed by what I've received.

First of all it is not just a simple 30 minute explanation video. They took the time to structure everything and describe it from all possible angles. Not just theory, it starts off with a real-life demonstration and later on there are many more full-length real-life scenes, including a stage performance. I can't remember having seen anything like that before.

Finally, I also got several bonus effects included, which seem strong enough to be sold separately one day. So the total playing time was somewhere around two and a half hours. And due to the performances, bonuses and other stuff it did not feel repetitive at all. I had to watch it in one go but I guess there are people with a shorter attention span...
Now, obviously one small drawback is that you don't get ready printed cards. But I understand the reason: They want to provide a packet including street, parlour and stage gimmicks in many languages. So they can't print all of them at this price. But all templates in all those eight languages are there and it was really easy to make the gimmicks. I had all the necessary tools (glue stick and scissors) at home. They even took the time to make different gimmick templates for US size paper and UK size paper. That was also a nice surprise.

Let's have a look at the routine: There are certain factors that make a good mentalism routine for me:
1) It must be meaningful for the spectator (different to a book test, which is not linked to any spectator)
2) You can add-in other elements to extend the spectator's experience (such as cold reading)
3) You are well ahead of the spectator (different to "blank night" routines, where you need to be most careful at the very end)
4) It must be easy to perform and can be learned within a day (different to Isabella's Star by Peter Turner)
Tarino meets all four criteria with flying colours. Even the first time I used it already proved it. That makes it easily 5-stars for me.

Looking at similar mentalism acts: A friend of mine showed me Past-Present-Future by Rick Lax. While that has the advantage of having beautiful cards included I feel it does not get the same level of impact as Tarino does. In Tarino the spectator sees a divination of her very own priority list of life values.
That is for me at least one order of magnitude above the impact of seeing the text "Past/Present/Future" on their selected card. But that's just my view.

Bottom line: I can HIGHLY recommend Tarino to mentalists of all levels who wish to add more meaning to their mentalism.

Tarino... Report this review
Verified buyer Pro Privacy ON (login to see reviewer names) on December 22nd, 2015
Yes...I had been waiting for this...after Codino and Zodino...and guess what...I was not disappointed with this "laymens"-masterpiece...Okay... The routine is really very easy to perform thanks to the clever memory system. The included cheat sheet helped me to rehearse the system just before the performance. That allowed me to use it soon after seeing the video. Girls really love it because it is similar to Tarot cards and character readings - just much easier. The included advice on palm reading looks promising but I haven't used that yet. The story telling and other mentioned techniques work equally well. It really helps to get to know strangers on parties or any other location and at the same time gives me the chance to practice my craft. So, it is quite different to showing off my magic skills with a quick new trick. This is creating a special atmosphere and a connection to the person you try it on. While I think it is not the classic trick to fool magicians, I know that it really works well on laymen. Some of them get very freaked out!

Get this one, if you are looking for a simple mentalism effect with very deep impact!

Highly recommended for those who can sell it. Report this review
Verified buyer Pro Privacy ON (login to see reviewer names) on January 18th, 2016
Andreas has three similar downloads on offer. This is the one I like the most. Magically it is very simple, almost obvious in its method as far as magicians are concerned, yet capable of being stunning to the layman, or more likely woman. It does require presentation but I would imagine that any to whom this appeals will be prepared for that.
Adreas' teaching is very thorough, both in the construction of the apparatus and in the variety of presentations included. The effort he has put into the preparation of the the material included is astonishing. The quality of the video is good but the camera work in the tutorial sections extremely irritating with repetetive changes of camera angle for no purpose whatsoever. He really needs some advice before he makes his next video.
But this does not affect the viability of the effect and routines offered here. With this material anyone with the right personality will be able to present themselves convincingly as being able to get inside someone's mind. As with all such material you will need to sell this, but for those who can I highly recommend this.

A-M-A-Z-I-N-G !!! Report this review
Verified buyer Pro Privacy ON (login to see reviewer names) on January 6th, 2016
I absolutely love the application of this effect. It is exactly the kind of trick I truly favour: simple yet powerful. It works fully surrounded, is immediately repeatable and you will get great reactions while creating a personalised wonder.
The teaching and quality of the video are top and Andreas does not miss any point while teaching the effect.
Andreas, you have yet again come up with a brilliant and clever routine! It's really a nice effect for private parties and many other venues.
Mentalism perfectly interlinked with character readings for an outstanding effect with strong emotional connection.
Superb!
