From the mind of Shin Lim comes an extremely clean and deceptive piece of mentalism.

Effect: You present both a deck of cards and a prediction, both which YOU WILL NEVER TOUCH in the performance. As a matter of fact, you can be sitting in the audience while the spectator is on stage counting the cards. You ask the spectator to think of a number between 1-52. Once a number has been chosen, you instruct the spectator to pick up the deck, and deal down to that number. You then instruct her to lift up the prediction which has been on the table the entire time. THE CARD AND PREDICTION MATCH.... EVERY TIME!

POINTS:

  • The magician DOES NOT touch the deck at any time.
  • The magician DOES NOT touch the prediction at any time.
  • NO gimmicks.
  • NO rough and Smooth.
  • NO sticky cards (this includes, glues, wax, roughing, ANYTHING)
  • NO equivoque
  • NO stooges
  • NO switching
  • NO electronics
  • NO gimmicks
  • Instant Reset
Shot in 1080p full HD, Shin goes over 3 variations of this effect.

I see both viewpoints of the reviewers. One argues its a good method, while the others argue the trailer is not honest to the actual method. They are both right. The method given in the actual video IS a decent one, but the trailer IS misleading in the actual method, AND not as clean as the trailer describes it to be...which is what we initially paid our hard-earned cash for.

Overall, the DVD leaves us with this sluggish feeling, "well, the trailer is not as the DVD describes it to be...but maybe I could make it work..." but, as in the title above, I would say my money could have been better spent.

I hope this review helps others in evaluating their purchase decisions. I would have given at least 3 stars, but its 1 star because they blatantly lied in the trailer...

Good Effect Report this review

(This review is for Think by Shin Lim - DVD)
I dont understand the reviewers that say this trick is horrible, or that the outcome on the trailer isnt always possible. Ive performed this and every time I great a great reaction, and from the SPECTATORS POINT OF VIEW, the outcome will always appear like the one in the trailer (and more often than not, it actually does). True, there is a VERY SMALL amount of memory work, and true, the deck has to be preset, but this trick is great. I have a presentation that basically guarantees that the few "unchoosable" numbers are never picked, and at the same time it makes the number choosing a much more imaginative, memorable moment for the audience. I have collected MANY ACAAN or CAAN plots, and none are perfect. They all have a limitation or drawback. Personally, I dont have the patience or math skills to memorize a stack and then do the calculations needed while trying to entertain people, so a method like this is GREAT. If you find that the effect is not hitting hard, rethink your presentation and showmanship and you will find a great effect with THINK.

This trick is easy to preform and packs such a punch, for those who are saying you can't say numbers *** @ etc. Shin goes over how to take care of it. Shin this is another winner!!

I have about 6~7 acaan items in my hand. This is by far the best one and I'm going to stop buying accan realated items because I think I'll use THINK only over and over when I want to perform acaan.

This is not magic effect involved with moves but
concidence effect. I mean if this kind of effects has a even one small move, it will lose its purity. It doesn't look good. I mean your performance skill can cover that whichever acaan you perform but if you want to perform this like true coicidence you gotta give the deck to spectator at whole time since the performance start. THINK can make you do this. And I believe that this is the key point to success this miracle.

I found the video to be misleading, they show the best possible scenario... in practice the trick can get more complicated than the video shows. I recommend The Grail for a cleaner method of a similar effect. You could also false shuffle in the presentation for The Grail but not with the method used in Think, (because of it's use of the new deck order with advirtizing cards and jokers).

Poor concept Report this review
Verified buyer Pro Privacy ON (login to see reviewer names) on December 21st, 2011
(This review is for Think by Shin Lim - DVD)
This is a very poorly conceived and designed effect and a waste of money. The trailer is inaccurate, the DVD plodding and overall a disappointment.

Clever, clever. Report this review
Verified buyer Pro Privacy ON (login to see reviewer names) on December 9th, 2011
(This review is for Think by Shin Lim - DVD)
This is a clever, pretty much self-working effect--no sleight of hand required. The concept can lead to other effects, and it is just a thoughtful and clever and magical effect. The other reviewer is kind of right--the spectator cannot examine the deck in detail--but they can sure run through the deck; in one version the cards are dealt face up so the spectators can see them . . . and the concept is what I appreciate. If you buy this, you will think it's clever, too--and you'll use it and you will fool people with it.

(This review is for Think by Shin Lim - DVD)
I really enjoy doing this trick for the fact that it is easy to do, you can literally do it totally hands off (spectator remove the deck, count the cards and reveal the prediction).

However I can't give it more than 3 stars because of the following reason:
1. No proofreading done, teaching error is found.
2. Number can be named is limited, 11 of them can't be named.
3. Price is at the high side for this single trick DVD
