WHY NAMES?

BECAUSE THEY’RE POWERFUL. They’re more powerful than cards, more powerful than coins, and WAY more powerful than ‘random words.’ And NAME GAME is a brilliant, new trick that harnesses this power DIRECTLY and SPECTACULARLY. Seriously, the secret method is unlike anything you’ve ever seen…and it’s KILLER.

DETAILED TRICK DESCRIPTION

You show off 8 name tags that have been cut in half. 16 pieces total. EVERY SINGLE PIECE IS DIFFERENT, AND THERE ARE NO DUPLICATES OR EXTRA PIECES. You spread the name halves across the table, face-up, and your friend can look at EVERY SINGLE ONE OF THEM. Then you turn all the pieces face down and mix up the piles.

FIRST, you remove a single name tag half. You can put it under your drink or even give it to your friend. THEN they remove another name tag half. And then…you guessed it: THE NAMES ARE A PERFECT MATCH.

EXTRA NOTES FROM RICK

 -I like performing this trick with “Hello My Name Is” name tags…but you don’t have to. You can also use index cards or pieces of paper or ‘blank face’ Bicycle cards.

-This is one of those rare tricks that you can start performing RIGHT AWAY. There are no ‘moves’ and nothing to hide. The deception is
purely psychological, and the secret is HIDDEN IN PLAIN SIGHT.

-I’m big enough to admit this: When Spidey first showed this trick to me…I was FOOLED BAD. It was great to work with Spidey on this idea, and then work with Brandon and Nick to shape it into the crystal clear, ultra-deceptive routine it is today. If you’re looking for a 5-phase storytelling demonstration…look somewhere else. BUT if you’re looking for a simple, bulletproof psychic demonstration that showcases the power of names, you’ll be happy with this one. I promise.

SPECIAL THANKS TO BRANDON GERALD AND NICK LOCAPO

Manufacturer Says

You will receive enough name tags to perform NAME GAME. Note: These are ordinary name tags. We include them to save you a trip to the store, but you can start performing immediately with your own if you have them.

a POCKET MONSTER (especially for beginners!) Report this review
Verified buyer Pro Privacy ON (login to see reviewer names) on February 2nd, 2017
First off...you should probably buy this trick. I mean, it's a collaboration between Spidey and Rick Lax. How sweet is that!?

NAME GAME is a simple and very clever mentalism trick - perfect for all skill levels. The trick is self working, so you can really focus on the presentation aspect of mentalism - no wonder Spidey is such a BEAST when it comes to working a crowd!

The video is well produced, and clearly explained - everything you would expect from Rick Lax. Within an hour I was all setup, practiced, and ready to try this out.

The secret seems simple, but SOARS PAST LAYPEOPLE. I spent the day performing it and nobody questioned anything and everyone was blown away or thrown for a total loop!

This trick is GREAT FOR BEGINNERS. Keep it in your pocket and perform for one or a group with no moves / no angles to worry about. The nametags make for an easy way to break the ice. Throw on a 'Hi My Name Is..' and go up to some strangers to introduce yourself and then introduce NAME GAME. What a great opener!

It is a principle that you could play around with for lots of different ideas / presentations. One day in and I have already come up with a few ideas for tailoring/tweaking it!

Name Game Report this review
Verified buyer Pro Privacy ON (login to see reviewer names) on February 2nd, 2017
Nothing is more personal than someone’s name. Spidey and Rick Lax have taken that concept and developed “Name Game” and it is powerfully wonderful!. The impact of this trick far outweighs the elegant and unique method that you will love.

I found this trick simple and easy to prepare. Using the name tags is interesting and certainly different from playing cards. It takes up very little pocket space and once prepared, it is always ready to go.

Name Game lends itself to performance in Hospitality Suites, Trade Shows, Restaurants, and many more Strolling venues.

Dale Carnegie said, “Remember that a person’s name is to that person the sweetest and most important sound in any language.” Spidey and Rick Lax have given us one sweet trick!

Genius with a capital G. Report this review
Verified buyer Pro Privacy ON (login to see reviewer names) on February 1st, 2017
This is seriously a stroke of genius from Spidey. Holy cow, I'm still blown away by the method after watching the explanation. It's extremely easy to do, it's extremely fair, it's extremely hard hitting, and it uses a method unlike anything I've ever seen. It's literally as fair as the trailer makes it seem. For restaurant workers, this is a DREAM. It's very little on the pocket management, it uses names which is inherently intriguing, and it is not a card trick. I will be adding this to my restaurant set immediately. It's too good to pass up. Heck, this may be my opener for those situations. As a side note, this could easily transfer to a stage piece with very little effort. (I will be transferring it for stage as well.) Long story short: BUY THIS. It is seriously incredible thinking.

Beautiful simplicity! Report this review
Verified buyer Pro Privacy ON (login to see reviewer names) on February 1st, 2017
The ad copy doesn’t exaggerate. There are really NO MOVES and NOTHING TO HIDE. The psychology is great. In spite of Rick Lax’s clear and skillful instruction, I had to re-watch the video because I was certain that the performance had completely debunked the explanation I’d just heard. In other words, I was still fooled, even after knowing how it works. Spidey’s thinking is as beautiful as the method is simple. And the simplicity leaves you free to focus on presentation and making a connection with your spectators. I’ll be running to the office store for some “My Name Is” tags and having a lot of fun with this one!

In a world full of magic, this is what self-working truly is! Report this review
Verified buyer Pro Privacy ON (login to see reviewer names) on February 1st, 2017
This is simplicity to its vey extreme! No forces, no sleights, nothing of such sort. I believe this is one of those tricks where we say ‘Packs Small, Plays Big’. I mean, all you need is a pen and some name tags(or even piece of paper would do) The fact that it’s so organic changes the game and it doesn’t even need a reset. You can perform it almost instantly.

I’ve always been a fan of Rick Lax’s and Spidey’s thinking and they surely lived up to their reputation. I would recommend this to anyone who is looking for a simple as A.B.C. Trick, yet powerful enough to be remembered for. It's not the trick alone, it's the scripting and connection of them with their names that really matters while performing.

The punctuations at the last of showing that all the names are actually different and there are not duplicates is a small detail but that alone is what affects the spectators mind more than the climax. Before even the trick begins, you know they are going to get fooled.

The one thing I believe that may disappoint some of you guys is that it cannot be repeated for the same group of friends again. I mean, you could do this, but that sells out the trick to the ones too focused. But if you’re planning to do this one trick one time for one group, howsoever genius they may be, trust me, no one can save them from being fooled! It’s that hitting! And then again, first rule of magic- We don’t recreate the magic twice, do we?

The fact that you can slightly mess up with the names and use you owns or names of people that are popular in your country is so cool. The idea can be used in one’s own script. Rick’s Scripting was fantastic but I believe what defines a good magician is doing the tricks their way.
It’s one of those tricks where when you have nothing on you, you can still punch big!

Good Job Rick & Spidey!

NAME GAME is a PLAYER! Report this review
Verified buyer Pro Privacy ON (login to see reviewer names) on February 1st, 2017
I would have never thought of this. The method is simple yet very powerful. The performace options are endless with this technique and I am looking forward to exploring more with it. Great first offering by Spidey on Penguinmagic.com. This will play well with beginners and professionals alike. Excited to see what's next from Spidey! Rick Lax also continues to be one of the best educators in the world of magic today. Thanks to both of you for this fun and mystifying trick.

No cards, no coins - Just names!!! Report this review
Verified buyer Pro Privacy ON (login to see reviewer names) on February 2nd, 2017
Wow! The trick is awesome. What I like the most is that the presentation is way different than usual tricks. It almost prompts the person to "feel" the power of the attraction of names!

Before to leave a review I always perform it for real people.

In less than 24 hours (in a rushy day) I learned, practiced (1 time only) and I went to perform it to real people. The total time spent in learning is about 1 h 30 minutes (including EVERYTHING). Before to perform I was wondering if I'd get good reactions. LMAO!

The person was swearing big time!!! She wanted to do it again. I think it could be repeated but once only. While doing so she was all into "feeling" the "fit" of the name under her hand.

After the performance she said (still swearing) that it was a GREAT trick explaining to me she was really feeling the name.

Good job Spidey, Rick and others who contributed. By the way everything Rick says and wrote on this trick is true. I've seen it.

May the magic stay with you!

I may have to put this in my wallet Report this review
Verified buyer Pro Privacy ON (login to see reviewer names) on February 2nd, 2017
This trick is pretty cool. It gets people involved and is very clean. All you need is a few name tags, a marker, and scissors and you have a "packs small, plays big" presentation. I was surprised to see that there are no moves or switces or anything. You can focus more on presentation when there are no moves to think about. I've been looking for tricks like this to put in my wallet to always have something on me. If this is your style, get it. I will be using this.
