mentalism

From the creative mind of Thomas Riboulet, creator of Sherlock’oin or also the Pinkie Work.

The performer shows a deck of cards, turns round, wears a blindfold and asks a spectator to cut a few card from the deck. The spectator shuffles the card and when he wants, show the first card of the pile.

Then, the spectator is requested to take a bigger pack of card, and cut this pack as he wants, to lose the card he saw amongst the others. The rest of the deck is placed above cards inside the spectator hand.

Once the performer is facing the spectator again, he explains that he will take the cards the spectator is holding and show them to him one by one. During this sequence, the spectator is asked to look at every single card the same way. But when he sees his card, he has to say STOP in his mind.

Without ever looking at the face of any card and without saying a word, always with the blindfold on his eyes the performer slowly shows each card. Magically, or by telepathy, the magician finds the card that the spectator chose and is thinking of right now!

Imagine if you could reveal a card that has been simply peeked at while your back was turned and your eyes were closed. Imagine if you never look at the face of the cards or asks any questions…Imagine if you have the possibility to reveal this thought of card in such a way that it would seem like real mind reading or telepathy. This card effect could become a powerful and emotional piece of mentalism. Imagine an effect that is super easy to perform with a normal deck. Do not imagine anymore… This is Dark Connection.

Be aware you don't get a direct download you get a few PDF with a link to his Youtube channel! what is infuriating as well as frustrating is you can't download the tutorial the whole ordeal which unfortunately I have encounter this situation with other similar downloadable material -It's such a exasperating experience it drove me to drink a whole pint of Whiskey!I understand the Precautionary
Protocol but let's get with it I would like to have the option of access to my purchased product in non WiFi
environments !Anyway I believe in supporting the arts & it's creators !Yes it is Devised & structured with classic standard methodology of course with his own unique perspective ! I don't care for the B Fold but he dose include an alternate routine without it ! So everyone get this effect it's well worth it not because I am an American of French
Descent but its a great concept that can be creatively integrated within the framework of your routines ! I am not a Robot !

Short version: Very strong magic. It's a gem and you should get it.

Long version: This is a hands-off trick, a spectator does "all the work" and you're still perfectly able to name the chosen cards. The routine is fun to perform and very fair to the spectator. There are no gimmicks.

No sleights are needed for this one. Recommendations are also included. If you are in card magic though, that "something" is what you should want to learn anyway.

In closing, it really doesn't get much better than this. Highly recommended. I'm very happy with this routine, I had a lot of fun with it so far, and I'll be performing it whenever I get the chance. You received a video in english, and two pdf (one in french and the other in english) with a lot of variation. Great ideas from Thomas. It's a really good guy, just send him a mail and he responds me quickly.

JUST PURCHASE IT !!!!!

I purchase this trick directly on Thomas Website but I wanted to post a review here.

This trick is wonderful. It is a fooler of both magicians as well as laymen. It is one of the most cleverly constructed tricks I have ever seen or read about. The trick is the sort that you do at every table or in every set of a walk around gig. You will leave them fried and feeling as if they have seen real magic.
Thomas present all his researches in the PDF. Well done !

You may need to work on it to make it fit your personality, but when you do, you will have a masterpiece. There are lots of possibilities with this trick.
One of the best things I have ever bought, and I have a lot. Highly recommended.

I have seen this principle used. It is one of my favorite magician foolers.
Thomas has given it a wonderful twist, and I feel it make the his version more simplified performance and allow the spectator to do the majority hands on. I like the idea with blindfold and the stop idea.

I just performed it last night without and it got great reaction from a friend that always gives me a rough time. He was clueless.

A tip is to have them recall what was done.
They took random amount of cards twice. Chose a card then cut any number of time. And. You can tell them where there card was. I used the smell of honesty. Kinda joking kinda of a science. But it got great results several times in the same night. I have a method to change the outcome to different areas of the deck. But that is just for me for now.

Amazing Report this review
Pro Privacy ON (login to see reviewer names) on April 21st, 2017
This card trick is almost self working and it builds itself to a great reaction from the spectators. It requires no memorization, you can use a borrowed deck and there is no force - the spectator gets a free choice. As for the utility move that Thomas teaches, its very cleaver and requires little slight handling/practice and once you get it down, the move can be used in many other card routines. The video is about 22 minutes long and the explanation comes with 2 PDF one in French and the other in ENGLISH which covers/teaches every detail. You will not be disappointed with this purchase, like I said, it's almost self working and packs a great punch at the end...you will have people going for a state of confusion to amazement in a matter of seconds.

I felt Mr Riboulet needed to slow down at the most Crucial point of the routine there were many confusing moments during the explanation he ended almost every sentence with OK ! He said OK so much so that it was so exasperating that it finally drove me to DRInk 2 Pints of Whiskey ! Anyway I like the effect even I'll never known how its done !It's OK !

Great Trick, great principle Report this review
Verified buyer Pro Privacy ON (login to see reviewer names) on March 24th, 2017
This is a very fine trick that just works as advertised. Even though I collect tricks like this one, the principle was new to me. It is very easy to perform, the method is well hidden. When explained you might think that this won't work, so you can fool yourself.

Thomas mentioned that the spectator can shuffle the deck beforehand, which is not true without a special handling that is not explained. But that is a minor detail.

If you don't use a joker, btw, the correct number for a deck of 52 cards is 29. A tipp: show cards from the bottom of the deck, this will speed things up a bit.

The other thing is: Thomas mentions that you can look down the blindfold, but that is rather unnecessary. You can be genuinely blindfolded, there is no need to see anything, if your spectator handles everything the way you tell him. The instructions are easy to follow. The only skill needed is spectator management, don't do it with someone who does not follow your instructions.
