I love predixion.I learned this effect from Max's color series of mentalism.This is such an easy and
very powrful mentalism card effect.But......Some people are more clever than the average person.You
cannot do anything about it.And if you perform this effect a lot like me there is a chance that you
will deal with a very clever person.I am performing the trick with the EXACT same execution as Max
does.I performed it for a friend and after the effect was done she said to me.The 2 cards that i
landed were not random.They were the 2 first cards from the deck...I was in my mind like HOW ON
EARTH after the time misdirection she noticed that?My new handling uses some extra things.I take the
deck out of the box and as i walk i palm the 2 top cards(the force cards) i give the deck to a
spectator and i say ok shuffle the cards.As i take the deck back i add the 2 cards that i palmed on
the top.Then i give the deck to another person and i continue with the trick.Belive me if you try
this is someone is really clever and says ok these are the 2 top cards you just say you shuffled the
deck before we start anything.I belive that this is the foolproof execution for this amazing
effect.Do this,and you will remember me!!!!!!!!!
Note:Max if you read this comment i can give
you my house if you want for the explanation of your brick effect!!!

There are many variations of this classic Al Leech plot, but Max's routine really MAXimizes the this
effect (see what I did there?) with a simple, clean, fair, and powerful handling. The extra deck
with the X card really packs a punch! And great to see Ray Goulet of Boston recognized for the
wonderful dealing subtlety that adds so much to the fairness and randomness of the dealing
procedure. You'd be hard-pressed to find another piece of card magic this powerful!

Just a wonderful, simple idea that's so deceptive I can't believe just how simple it is to perform.
You don't have to touch the cards at all, and it'll hit every time. The choice of card seems
incredibly random and fair and you don't have to perform any sleights whatsoever. Fantastic!

And I don't use those words together accidentally or often. It is simple and brilliant. I expect no
less from Max. He is da man! When I saw Acar's email about this effect and saw Max's comment, I
thought that Max was simply recommending it. When I followed the link, I was delighted to find that
it is Max's creation. I didn't even watch the video. If it's by Max Maven (or even recommended by
him), I buy it. I suggest you do too. Max says this effect was 40 years in the making, but don't
wait that long, or you'll miss the introductory price which makes it EVEN BETTER! Thanks Max and

This is a great sleight-free, practically self-working prediction trick. You'll be able to perform
as soon as you've seen the video and drawn the X.

Proof positive that the simplest effects in magic are the best. I love this effect. I have no
doubt that this will bring strong audience reaction! I'll use it in my close up. At this
price--it's a no brainer. Buy it!!!

Simplicity doesn't take away from the wonder and beauty of this trick. Although there is no slight
of hand you still use words to create slight of mind. These simple but powerful subtleties is what
fooled me in the presentation as it will fool your spectators. I will probably use this as a closer
for sure. It is just that powerful. Add to cart now.

This is a great effect by one of our best creators. Its a great lesson in why subtlety and build up
are the real keys to mentalism. The subtleties in this are brilliant and fooled me badly. There
really are no weak moments or difficult moves. This baby is 99 percent self working and so easy to
perform. If you wanted to stray away from playing cards you could get creative and use picture
cards, multi colored esp decks, cards with emotions written on them, post cards etc. No equivoke
either. The selection is SO fair. I will be using this effect. Thank you Mr. Maven.
