Mentalism and Magic all in one mesmerizing effect!

Kyle Purnell presents a powerful workhorse routine straight from his professional strolling repertoire. The magician presents the 5 standard ESP symbols and instructs the spectator to choose ONE and only ONE symbol to eliminate. After the named symbol is removed from the packet, the rest of the cards are immediately turned over to reveal an unexplainable and unforgettable prediction.

When the cards are turned back over, they are all revealed to be completely blank!

This strong piece of mentalism and magic uses no equivoque, no traditional multiple outs, no table, and absolutely no forces! It is super direct and multi-phased, making it an ideal opener for a mentalism set.

Kyle then teaches his Calculator Cards routine, which is straight out of his formal close-up show.

All necessary cards for Elimination Experiment are included, ready to be customized with your own handwriting.

"Kyle's tricks always take me on a journey I've never been on before. He has a real knack for inventing unique plots in magic. This trick is a shining example of that."
- Caleb Wiles

"I met Kyle at a convention and I don't get fooled much unless it's in the lobby at 3 am. Kyle fooled me over and over with his magic and it was 4 in the afternoon. Get this trick."
- Mark Calabrese

"Damnit Kyle! I normally hate ESP plots, but you came up with a version that I would actually do. Now if you excuse me I'm going to practice while watching the ESP scene from Ghostbusters."
- Josh Janousky

First off I want to state that while Kyle is a friend, this is in no way a bias review!

Kyle showed me elimination experiment a while back and it blew me away. When he told me it was going to be released, I was so excited! Kyle sent me one, and upon arrival here is what comes with it.

1 video link with instructions
5 standard ESP cards
3 blank cards
1 white envelope to house it all in.


The video:
The video is top quality, as is all of Kozmos products. The video is around 20 min in length. The teaching by Kyle is clear and easy to understand. The bonus of “calculator cards” is a nice touch. If you have Kyle’s lecture notes “never finished” then you know how great calculator cards is. The one thing about the video I will say threw me off a bit, was that everything comes in a dvd slip case, yet there’s no dvd. It’s a video link.

The props:
you receive all necessary items to begin performing. Just grab a sharpie to write on the cards and you’re good to go. I do suggest practice writing on some
Spare cards to make sure you you can make the writing as neat as possible.

There’s really no difficult sleights. Kyle teaches all necessary moves in great detail as well as alternative moves

What would I change?
Honestly, this is as bare bones as it gets. The price of $20 I believe is fair. I think they could have gotten away with $25 or even $30 if they had a dvd and maybe a cheap plastic card holder. But that’s just being a bit too picky. It’s honestly perfect as is.

Would I recommend this?
I would recommend this for anyone who does a bit of mentalism and magic. A pure mentalist probably wouldn’t do this. As Kyle states in the video, this is a great Segway from mentalism to Magic and vise versa. I’d have to give this a 9/10. I use it, I like it, I think you Will too

Kyle Purnell's Elimination Experiment was my first experience with an ESP routine and it's a keeper. This is a fun way to break up traditional card tricks with something mysterious because most people haven't dealt with ESP cards at all. Kyle does a fantastic job in detailing every naunce of the routine and he even throws in a bonus routine! Please note that some intermediate sleight of hand is required, but don't let that deter you. If you can do material from Born to Perform by Oz Pearlman, then you should be golden. I do recommend that you purchase some extra ESP cards and a deck of blank face cards. I wore out the cards included in this set in 2 days from practicing.
