Square by Patrick G. Redford - Book
Powerful Impromptu Mentalism with a deck of cards!
As part of a 5 comic book series, Square (preceded By Triangle & Heptagon), is a comic devoted to mental feats with a deck of cards. As usual, all of the material is 100% impromptu.
Imagine being able to appear to clock a deck in less than 30 seconds (with little real effort) and give your subjects the power to do the same. Imagine a 10 card poker deal routine that allows the subject to choose both his hand and your hand from face-up cards and still lose. Imagine being able to sense the instant someone thinks stop. Imagine an ESP card match routine that requires almost no sleights or one-ahead techniques. Stop imagining and pick up Square, now.
Artist Jesse Rubenfeld's signs back on for this third installment of the shape series and his artwork is unmatched. Join Patrick G. Redford at the Paper Moon Saloon in the old west for an adventure that's impossible to forget.
"I have always stated that there is a place in mentalism for playing cards. The methodology of any card trick presented as a real mental skill or gambling must be well hidden, or there are huge consequences at stake. It can't look like a trick, it must look real! Patrick has provided you with just such effects. The methods are well hidden and the impact each have are powerful. All you need is guts, a deck of cards, and a willing audience." - Banachek
"Killer material even for those who don't usually use cards." - Marc Salem
"The subject freely picks his own cards, face-up, and still loses? That's unreal! You've got me hooked." - Leo Boudrou
Here's a sneak peek at the 4+ effects inside:
Card Counter: Under the fairest possible conditions, the performer is able to tell the subject what card he's thinking of after quickly looking through the deck of cards once at rapid speed. After proving to be correct, the subject is then given the power to duplicate this difficult feet with uncanny results.
SPOT POKER TELLS: Under test conditions from a shuffled deck of cards, the performer senses the exact moment the subject sees his thought-of-card. At no time need the performer look at or touch the cards during the deal through. The subject is encouraged to remain absolutely silent and yet the performer somehow still knows!
ESP CARDS: Five ESP cards are perfectly matched by the subject in a clean, direct, and mind boggling fashion. Virtually Self-Working. No One Ahead. 30 Card Poker Deal: Harness the power to influence a subject's every decision. The much anticipated release of Redford's poker deal. A killer 3 phase routine that uses real suggestion techniques with a 100% fail safes and a special kicker prediction ending. It even works with jumbo cards on stage!
"The subject freely picks his own cards, face-up, and still loses? That's unreal! You've got me hooked."

Have a question about this product?
If your a mentalist, you may not want to do card "tricks", like me. BUT these are no mere card
tricks.....these are mental feats of awesomeness you can pretty much do anywhere, anytime,impromptu,
with the spectators deck. my favourite routine by far is spot poker tells, it looks like real mind
reading. all the effects are great ( and magician foolers), the teaching is good, sometimes a bit
confusing , but other from that great. the sleights taught in this book are so, so useful. the book
comic itself is well drawn and hilarious with many in jokes for mentalists and magicians. this is a
must buy for someone who wants to go from doing an ambitious card to having power. i also suggest
you try prevaricator and double feature, both absolutely BRILLIANT products.... oh and fantasie
impromtu is taught in this book too (eve though its not listed). for those of you who dont know, its
patricks CAAN effect where the subject finds the card themself. search it on youtube, its truely
amazing. 5 STARS
