Perform a direct prediction of a chosen word that will leave your audiences stunned. No switches or forces. This is Buzzwords.

Here’s what happens:

You show your audience that all you have is a list of words and some cards with letters written on them. The words are different, and even contain a wide variety of letters from all parts of the alphabet. Your spectators choose a number, and you count down the list to the word in that position. Then you reveal that the cards you are holding spell the exact word they chose. The best part is that the list and the letters never leave the screen. No way you could have switched them, nowhere for you to hide.

Buzzwords is perfect for your Zoom shows, Skype calls, and Facebook chats. Plus, you’ll also learn how Dan Harlan uses Buzzwords to play huge for a live audience. Building on the work of Melbourne Christopher, this classic principle is easy to do and perfect for real life and online demonstrations of mentalism. Taught in detail by Dee Christopher and Dan Harlan your audience won't be able to stop talking about Buzzwords.

Really simple and very powerful Report this review

I am honestly impressed. I thought I had an idea of the method and it turns out that not only was I wrong, the real method is about 100 times easier than where my head went. Bravo.

Buzzwords by Dan Harlan and Milbourne Christopher is a winner on several levels. It uses a very clever principle, some old and new thinking. When I saw the demo, I also tried to think of the method. In this case, I was right. I have utilized a******** in magic for years, like Max Maven and others. (the word is redacted so I won't give away too much in this review). Add to that principle, which you will love, are several additional subtleties that make this a perplexing piece of mentalism.
Another key point is that it is easy to make and perform, with minimal props. The first routine is perfect for 2020 in that it can be performed over zoom or Skype shows. Dan's routine (adapted from Christopher's routine in Tarbell) is fun for those live shows with a participant.
Here's something I perhaps should not say. I don't buy a trick depending on whether or not it fools me. My purchase depends on many other factors, the main one being the effect as perceived by an audience. And I would not mind paying ten bucks to get Dan Harlan's thinking on a trick, even on those I already own. I hope Dan doesn't read this review. It could put me in the poorhouse.

Disappointing Report this review
Verified buyer Pro Privacy ON (login to see reviewer names) on June 14th, 2020
I've purchased many great Penguin downloads in the past. This is NOT one of them. I'm pleased that several people enjoyed it. More power to them and good luck. Personally, I found the effect to be extremely boring. I will just file this purchase in my junk magic file. When I perform I do my best to invoke excitement in my audience. I'm afraid this one will just put them to sleep.

I've seen Dan do much better.

An attractive price for an instant download of a superb mental effect. The words themselves are clear and large enough for a fair-sized platform show. The effect seems SO fair and is quite effective.

Insanely Powerful / Insanely Simple / Insanely Odd Tutorial Report this review
Verified buyer Pro Privacy ON (login to see reviewer names) on June 15th, 2020
I am giving this a 4 only because I wish half of this 47 minute tutorial could be wiped from my memory, 23 minutes and 30 seconds added back to my life.

Take my advice, don't do what I did. Fast forward. I don't know what happened during post production, but hire a new editor!

More time could have been spent on technique and variations, than on the painfully obvious. I do mean painfully obvious. Like taking a strip of paper and writing the same words on it that on on that on another strip of paper in full view. Is he doing this because there is a switch involved, it it a gimmick. NO! Its the same f'n strip of paper with the same words on it! How long did that take something like 15 minutes of my life? You can't make this stuff up.

I like the effect. I can see using it in any number of ways, but honestly give your audience some credit, even a 5 year old could have done without all that.

Skill level since the tutorial was obviously made for a 3 year old - NONE. The ghost of Mr. Rogers haunts this tutorial. Can you say 'Buzzwords?' I thought you could!

BTW - for the overtly serious minded. This was written in jest. You have to have a sense of humor to navigate the day sometimes.

Very good Report this review
Verified buyer Pro Privacy ON (login to see reviewer names) on June 11th, 2020
There are two methods playing together perfectly.
I think english is the best lenguage for this and maby the only one that works. Because of this i give just 4 stars, but I love the methods and they can be used in many different ways.
And yes, it works live too.

Nice Buzz Report this review
Verified buyer Pro Privacy ON (login to see reviewer names) on June 12th, 2020
Solid, quick prediction effect. There are 2 presentations given. I prefer the virtual method (which works equally as well for in person performance - e.g. passed wifey test). Played very strong on a conference call as well. As mentioned in the tutorial, the general principal will likely spark your creativity and you're bound to come up with other ways to use this.
