Price: $9.95
In stock: Download INSTANTLY.

This is the ultimate murder mystery game for you: propless, impromptu and without limitations.

Meet a group of strangers and ask them to play a murder mystery game with you: In your absence they define who plays the murderer in the group. Each individually decides to be either a shameless liar or an honest truth teller. Once you are back you are in the role of Dr. Lightman from "Lie to me". You ask very few and simple questions, look into their eyes, check their mimics and find out who are the liars and who is the murderer.

This is propless mentalism that needs no stooges, no mathematics, no psychological skills and is still 100% sure fire every single time.
You get full participant involvement: From 3 to more than 20 participants - so it also plays big on large stages.

The Facts:
- 100% impromptu - no setup & instant reset!
- No gimmicks required
- 100% Sure fire - every single time!
- Very easy for participants - they just say: yes or no
- Works with complete strangers
- Works in any language
- No preshow or stooges
- No fishing
- 100% angle proof
- No sleight of hands, no mathematics
- Best suitable for parties, table hopping and stage

Ring of Truth and Tequilla Hustler turbocharged Report this review
Verified buyer Pro Privacy ON (login to see reviewer names) on August 30th, 2016
You line up a bunch of people. Have them select one to be the murderer and have everyone decide to be either a truth-teller or liar. With a few simple questions, you can figure out who is the murderer and who is lying. Of course, this is the old Banachek Ring of Truth premise in different clothing. (Some may even recognize Atlas Brookings's Imbalance, but trust me, this is a lot easier to understand.)

In the past couple of years, we have seen an influx of these type of effects such as MANOEDA, Tequila Hustler, Rock Paper Lies, V, Strange Oblique, and others. And once you see how one works, it's just a matter of understanding the "process" in figuring out the others. If you like these--and I certainly do--then you'll love Andante Murder Mystery. If this kind of stuff gives you a headache, then stay away. I will say this, like a few of these methods, this one has the flaw where certain responses are ipso facto mutually inconsistent, and a really sharp observer--probably one with a degree in philosophy--while perhaps not knowing exactly how it works, will see the overall picture behind the effect. (Tequila Hustler and V are both good at hiding the process.) It's not fatal, and a good performance will camouflage it, but it is there. The ebook gives some helpful performance tips.

At first blush, the ebook, like this creator's other effects such as Zodino, is exhausting in its detail. But if you take a deep breath and first concentrate on the bold-faced principles, the colorful diagrams will make sense. And if you are familiar with Tequila Hustler or another similar effect, figuring it out will really take no time at all.

You'll know whether you want this or not. If you do, you'll use it because it's smart and well worth the cost. It will undoubtedly be great to use in a room full of strangers or for a stage performance.

I love the fact that you can just walk up to random strangers with nothing in your pockets and create a moment of true amazement.

Initially I thought it might be very similar to Marc Paul's "True Lies" stage trick shown in his Penguin lecture. But it isn't. This one is of the same calibre but using an entirely different technique, which is completely propless and impromptu. So, you don't need to handle cards and you can start straight away with all participants. That's cool!

The PDF file is well illustrated and covers lots of angles from stage techniques to ways of reducing the number of questions asked. The booklet might be overwelming at the beginning but is well summarized towards the middle and the actual technique is very simple. The mini cheat sheet is a nice bonus that might come in handy after a while. How often have I forgotten how exactly an effect works... So, the cheat sheet is already in my wallet:-).

This is a beautiful piece of mentalism with a ground breaking new technique.
Two thumbs up!

Truely awesome real-world mentalism Report this review
Verified buyer Pro Privacy ON (login to see reviewer names) on September 7th, 2016
Bought it the other day and used it straight away. Awesome reactions, excellent!

This is practical, real-world mentalism. Not complicated lip reading or convoluted anagrams. And yet, no gimmicks or other stuff are involved. Plain and simple. For me, that's how great magic should be!

I realized with difficult, "super clever" crowds, it's best to ask each player only one question initially. That way virtually no-one can backtrack your method. For the second question only ask those players that are mentioned in the PDF.

With that in mind it is solid gold. Go and get it!

Zero day miracle Report this review
Verified buyer Pro Privacy ON (login to see reviewer names) on July 11th, 2017
Undoubtedly the best effect I've purchased this year! Propless, impromptu, surprisingly simple and gets massive reactions.
Just read the last page of instructions, rehearse it twice and you are ready to go. Tip: Initially just try it with groups of 3 or 5 people before you move on to other sizes of groups. Then, it's super easy.

A miracle at a moment's notice!

I'm not sure why some peeps don't like the 'which hand' effect, I know a few of them. Having said that, I really have always liked the effect to include 'Kurosuke'.

This Andante Murder Mystery adds to my repertoire of 'propless mentalism'. Walk into any home, bar, restaurant and voila!

I don't have to be dressed a certain way to perform, it becomes 'real magic' being able to perform this material. It leads away from the tricky side of magic to the real side which is in my opinion, mentalism.

To those who do not like the 'which hand' effect, thnx for staying away. To those who like real magic, get this!

MAGIC ALERT: This does require an effort and practice! It's real Magic!!!

Unbelievable!! Report this review
Verified buyer Pro Privacy ON (login to see reviewer names) on August 29th, 2016
Went straight into my stage act. I like this a lot: It's really simple - so you can fully focus on your presentation. As with all mentalism, without the right presentation you wouldn't get the mind-blowing reactions. Here the presentation is simple: Just step into the shoes of Dr. Lightman and they'll love it.

The explanation booklet boils down heavy theory into a simple pattern that is 100% reliable and easy to remember.

Now you can approach a group of 20 people with no gimmicks, no cards, no pens nor anything else and create a moment of mystery with all of them. A first-class opener!

I'm confused. This isn't a trick anyone can pull off. I have read the file at least 10x and still have no idea and I'm no rookie.

It is a clever trick, but in order to make it look like a magic trick and not just a riddle game you need to try a lot harder than you think!

The first time I tried this I failed, and I am sure that the drinks I had before my "performance" were not helping either.
Fortunately my test audience - friends are more forgiving than paying audience.

Bottom line:
