I have better mentalism effects but this one isn't bad either. It's "ok". Easy to do as well.
Mentalism is something that most magicians like to incorporate into their routines and this is a
great way to start. The trick is so simple and doesn't require any fancy slight of hand or forces.
The spectator actually can cut to any card and it doesn't even need to be replaced. You write your
prediction and you get it right every time. The trick does require some set up but it pretty much
instantly resets so you're ready to go again. If you are looking for a great mentalism trick, this
for such a simple routine that can be repeated in numerous different ways, the setup for this is a
real pain and the routine is flat and not that impressive. Save your money and come up with your own
version of this trick using sleight of hand
This is a really strong mentalism effect. However, there's a catch. It takes quite a bit of setup.
It could make an interesting beginner to your routine, but I don't personally use it on a day-to-day
basis. It doesn't fit my repertoire, but if you like the effect, I'd definitely buy it!
I think this is a great affect for beginner and professional magicians alike. Even though it does
require a bit of setup it's practically self-working when ready. All in all add to your cart
Thought Foreseen, I would say, is one of the top five must have and easy to perform instant
downloads on Penguin. Here's a list of pros and cons, and why the trick is worth getting...
beginners can do it (I found this trick in an old book when I was 8 and could blow
people's mind even without the fake shuffle)
reputation maker... "do that trick again!"
easy to perform: simple method
can be presented as mind reading,
xray vision, or influence
spectator acknowledges that they have the freedom to cut anywhere
only .95 for both the method and the most beastly fake shuffle EVER
impossible outcome to the spectator
more of an opener or single trick
large setup (but only have to reset if the deck is truly shuffled)
false shuffle will take
practice (the shuffle isn't necessary for the trick, but if it is used, it adds a 5 times better
effect. and if you're doing magic and not willing to practice, then go find a different hobby)
If the spectator decides to get "smart" with the cards while your back is turned, there is a chance
the trick wont work (even if they do, this chance is EXTREMELY SLIM. so don't worry)
CART... why? because this is direct mentalism at its easiest to perform, and along with the trick
itself, you will get THE BEST FALSE SHUFFLE. Everyone has seen false table shuffles that don't look
natural and you don't get to see the cards actually weaving into each other. This is a false riffle
shuffle with a bridge... beat that!
yeah its good, the only problem is if you cut TOOO much there is a chance the trick is shot...but
still...its really smart and I use it a lot.
I cannot belive I didn't get this trick when I first got into Penguin if you are looking for a way
to build up your reputation, get this. ADD TO CART NOW!
I like this trick. but why 3 stars? Well....it's not what it seems and there is a bit of setup. :(
For the price, I personally don't think its worth it. but, overall, its a very, very easy mentalism
Well, what is there to say? A LOT. This trick is great, in fact, it isn't really a trick, more of a
tool, that lets you do many things.There is ABSOLUTELY NO sleight of hand involved. In fact, the
hardest part of it is putting the cards back in the case-and that isn't even hard. Ever since I
purchased this trick,I have done it all the time.In fact,of all the times I HAVE done it, not ONCE
have I not recieved great reactions-not once!I really reccomend this trick. I know many tricks, but
the ones I always do to people are:2CardMonte and the Ambitious Card Routine-after I got Thought
Foreseen, I added that to my routine.
Pros: No forces. You NEVER see their card, although you
know what it is. It is a full deck of 52 cards.Gets great reactions. Can be used for many things.
Can be repeated over and over, each time with a different card.It is 110% impromptu. No stooges.They
cut ANYWHERE they want.I could go on and on with pros.
Cons:You have to set the deck up before
hand.Your set up can be ruined by a spectator, but it rarely happens.
