Springboard is a revolutionary new system for allowing your spectator to read minds!

In this cutting edge book you will be taught the inner secrets behind this technique which had previously only been shared with a select few.

Imagine for a moment that you are thinking of a card. The spectator creates a card in their mind, never mentioning any color, suit or value. Their choice is real. You name the card that you were thinking of and they freak out. Put simply they have just read your mind.

Imagine the reactions from your spectators when they are able to identify cards which you have handed them sight unseen.

Imagine performing a super clean version of Paul Vigils "Diplopia" effect where your thought of card is placed on the table from the word go.

Imagine performing the invisible deck whereby the card is revealed without the need to know the identity of the spectators card.

Points to remember:
Easy to do.
No memory work.
No preparation needed.
The spectators choices are genuine.
Perform with a borrowed deck which need not be complete.
The spectator never reveals, colors, suits or values until after you reveal your thoughts.

Also includes additional thoughts on applying this to non card related items including an amazing technique where by the spectator is able to reveal a random time set on another spectators watch!

Imagine no more...

Here are a few quotes:

"Mike Murray has devised what is possibly the most important new playing card mentalism concept of the last decade. It's a truly devious idea, one which allows you to empower the spectator in a way that seems completely unfathomable. He has found a holy grail that we didn't even know we were looking for..."
- Mark Elsdon

"This is one of the smartest psychological card subtleties I've had the pleasure of learning. It's direct and creates a moment of genuine magical amazement for your participant."
- Colin McLeod

"This is f'ing lovely! I read this and just had to try it out. Be attentive and see this for what it is...It certainly sparked several ideas in my mind."
- Pete Turner

"Michael's "Springboard" gambit is the single best technique for discerning a genuinely thought of card I have ever seen and the structure with which he has framed his technique is nothing short of masterful. I was only sent the first few pages and I can honestly say I've never been so profoundly impressed and so genuinely ecstatic by so few words. Seriously. It's GENIUS!"
- David Forrest

"Springboard is a beautiful utility concept that can be applied to cards and many other objects. The effects Michael gives you are just the tip of the iceberg."
- John Carey

"Springboard is the next stage of mentalism evolution."
- Wayne Goodman

Throwaway Trick Report this review
Verified buyer Pro Privacy ON (login to see reviewer names) on September 26th, 2016
This has got to be the most expensive throwaway trick my brother has ever purchased.

My younger brother had just earned $40 dollars and wanted to buy a trick. I told him that Springboard sounded interesting and had good reviews. He took my recommendation and bought it. The book arrived, he read it, and then performed it for me. I immediately knew what was going on.

The method behind the trick was so obvious that I figured he must have performed it wrong, or at least very badly. He ensured me that he had performed it correctly and gave me the book to confirm such.

I read the book, and sure enough, he had followed the instructions precisely as they were given in the book.

Any intelligent spectator is likely to figure out this trick. The obviousness of the method made me feel so guilty for recommending the trick to my brother that I offered to refund his money; he declined the offer.

Once you learn the method to Springboard, you're likely to think, "Well, yeah, of course the spectator can 'read your mind' if you do that. So what?"

Save your money.

FANTASTIC! Report this review
Pro Privacy ON (login to see reviewer names) on April 21st, 2014
One of my favorite effects! It's quite psychological, but works SO well and pretty much every time.

If you liked White Room by Ran Pink, you'll ADORE this!

Very Clever thinking Mr. Murray! Report this review
Verified buyer Pro Privacy ON (login to see reviewer names) on March 8th, 2016
I use this daily! Borrowed deck, marked deck, sleight of hand or even Steam 2!

This is a 'worker'!

Requires an ability to think on your feet and practice, happy to say!

Tequila Hustler would play well here in developing a routine using Springboard, Steam 2 and Tequila Hustler, especially with Michael Murray's handling of TH!

Crazy good!

Speechless spectators Report this review
Verified buyer Pro Privacy ON (login to see reviewer names) on October 16th, 2015
This routine is so brilliant, why can't I give ten stars.
I combine it with a reading by myself right before springboard.
It is so great to give the ability of reading to the spectator without any dual reality stuff. Love this!
