Shawn Farquhar, FISM Grand Prix World Champion of Magic, performs and explains in detail an effect that has been used in his show since 2011 when he presented it at the famed 4F convention in New York. This has been described as the "paper balls over the head" of mentalism. It's the perfect piece for mentalist looking to lighten the mood, magicians wanting to present mentalism and even master of ceremonies wanting to spice up the event with a little audience interaction.

I am posting a review that contrasts with the review already published here. Many, or most, book tests are "'one trick wonders." No one ever reasonably scored Larry Becker's original Flashback a "3" because it involved only one trick.
Sheer Luck features two tricks. It should rate high because it pioneers a distinctive method, it catalyzes audience involvement, it involves near-dual reality, and is entertaining. It is not a closer, but for a good, entertaining effect where the performer needs some levity, it would be hard to beat.
Cute but overpriced Report this review

I am always a little leery of tricks that won't show you the actual effect being done. It always makes me think the effect is so weak it can't stand up to even casual scrutiny. But I went against my instincts and bought this effect because of Shawn Farquhar's name and his previous Penguin lecture.
This is cute, and it's funny for an MC bit. Unfortunately, it's dramatically over-priced for what you get. It's a one-trick-wonder, and if you're good with interacting with a crowd it's going to be funny. Will it amaze folks? Well, it'll be more of a cute joke with a magic punchline.
I will probably use this in the right setting. The only reason I would try to put this into a regular routine is because of the money I spent on it. If it were half this price (as it should be) it would probably not be used that often.
