I really like Rick's other stuff, but this was really a stretch to sell as a stand-alone item. The method is "iffy". It might fool a group of friends, sometimes, but it definitely is not a "worker." I feel like I wasted my money on this. Sorry.

Can the list casually be written down in front of people (perhaps while receiving it from your wife as last minute errands, in a brief phone call from her—this is where acting skill come in), and then go straight into the presentation?

Or does the list need to be prepared will in advance and already written up and ready for you to perform? Thank you in advance. Peace.

I got this effect when it was first released on the Cool Box nearly 2 years ago, and it has been in my wallet since then.

I'm a working professional, and I've never been caught on this before other than by magicians, and by my girlfriend who asked: "Oh, you actually have a to-do list?" In fact, I get strong reactions from this effect due to how direct it is, and have gotten bookings based on this alone (thanks Rick!).

I believe this effect is truly a worker with the right amount of confidence and with proper presentation.

To answer Jeli's question: unfortunately, it has to be prepared in advance. Once it's prepared, however, you'll be able to use it forever (I've been using the same list for 2 years... It's a little worn, but still...). :)

I think you can have this prepared in advance, and PRETEND that you're writing the list impromptu. With good acting skills and the right situation I think this to be an awesome presentation! When I'm doing a parlour show I briefly show a couple of the special entries (don't want to give anything away) to a couple different audience members. This helps solidify the psychological ploy of it all.
