Where do I start...
This trick did not surprise me in method, as a lover for Will To Read
by Steve Dela and Alakazam, Volition - Joel Dickinson, and what obv seems like a bit of equivoque...
brings in a B'Wave feel of back and forth.
I love love love the trick as a free will fan in
mentalism. I want to make known that if you see the trailer you might not know what is going on but
to do exactly what Alexander does, you will need a specific watch...
I have spent two
days on amazon, and a full day running errands trying to find a watch that will do this but i had to
buy it to take the white slip out of the crown. Without giving anymore info away, you can do this
trick a million ways. If you already know Will To Read, you can avoid certain things if you dont
have the proper watch for this to do every single thing you see, or you can make your own
rendition... I would be putting a video up at some point on youtube if you want to stay updated. I
dont know how this sold out so quick but i had a feeling this would be a quick hot seller so i am so
glad to get a copy!
The cards (you get a poker and tarot size; so two cards) are made of
great quality and will last you a very long time. take care of it... keep one in your wallet/ phone
and another with your other tarot cards.
I would give this a 5/5 if i didnt have to alter
my performance and to feel like i need to go out and get a watch to do what you have the spec.
do...But there are cheap watches i am sure you can find it is just they are very sensitive it wasnt
too reliable the ones i found in stores (maybe online is better to try?) However i choose to use a
even more out of this world idea using my SB Watch with TimeSmith App by Benke and Andreás.
I would put this on your list when it is back in stock! Dont get discouraged of my watch
struggles, this trick can be done with bare bones of just your imagination (which is why i said
kinda like B'WAVE)) but it will always be impactful, just is most impactful when they get to touch
things knowing the magician didnt mess with it.
Stay Safe & Stay Magical!

First off, thank you Penguin! It still says "processing" on my account and I thought that it would
not show up on time, but WOW, it came in the mail today! Totally unexpected!
For just one
card, this is a neat trick. I have made up F.W. myself, using Santa items (I am a Santa by trade),
so I was familiar with the concept.
I had The Time Machine watch by Rob Stiff, but even a
jeweler could not get it to work, so I came up with my own method of forcing the time using the OTL
principle. I made one pocket watch pointing to 12:00 and the to be signed ones pointing to 7:14.
After the watch is signed, I place it into a small black envelope and have the spectator hover their
hands over any two items of the three. The rest you all know. Works great and the signed clock with
the matching time catches everyone off guard.
Nice card stock and I will save the small one
as a back-up.
Video answers all your questions, too.
Get this trick. You won't be

This is my first review. It didn’t take but a moment to like the trick. It’s a good trick. It could
be one of those fail proof gems. However, like I’ve seen in another review, the watch that you
supply may be difficult to find. While there are many on the market and they are pretty accessible,
it seems that the modern watches don’t seem to be “exact” in the function it’s supposed to perform
(two click). I’ve tried many at a couple of different retail stores. They do function properly but
are easy to miss because they don’t seem to be made like they used to be. If someone could link to
watches that are more fail-proof, I would change my review to a five star.

I did Not buy this from Penguin I picked it up on the road.
Its a great trick. Beginner level
easy to do. Video is very good. I highly recommend this trick. Very clever.
The only reason I
gave it 4 stars is because NO DVD, I am a collector, would have paid a couple bucks more if given
Question: How do you pass your Magic collection on to others if there are no
directions or DVDs ?

I got Thy will be done from a local magic shop and I must say I am impressed, and as someone new to
tarot cards it’s inspired me to investigate further into this genre of Mentalism I have only
recently heard about.
The effect is great, uses unsuspecting, ungimmicked items that can be
borrowed, or supplied by yourself. While strong, this trick is not the most powerful trick in the
book, but to use it as an introduction to yourself or the subject of your next trick would be a good
use of this trick, the pen, watch, and coin can all be items used for other, more powerful tricks to
follow this one up (I for one could see using Mark Southworths Double cross pen and transitioning
from there) it’s fine alone, but can be stronger if backed up by another effect using one of the
objects on the table.
This trick works great for stage or parlour situations with a tarot
sized card, or casual situations with the playing card sized tarot that can fit in your wallet with
The item force is a very old, very well know method in magic, but it works like a
charm so who cares
I wouldn’t call it a magician fooler, I was able to crack the secret
upon my first viewing of the full performance, but in the eyes of the lay you have absolutely
nothing to worry about
Really the closest thing to an issue with this effect lies in the
watch, but it is a relatively insignificant one
I doubt I spoil anything when I say the
final watch kicker is done with the use of a time force. For the one taught with this the watch
cannot be borrowed 100 percent of the time, either you will need to find someone in the room over
time with the right watch for the trick, or bring one of your own. With the mass popularization with
apple and other digital watches, your best bet lies on the latter.
The video mentions the
watch needed can be purchased for a few bucks. I was fortunate enough to already have a watch that
can be used for this, but given the watches sentimental and dollar¢s value I’m not going to be
freezing it or removing the batteries as some people may do for a time force watch, but rather I
force the time a few minutes before my target time and time the final kicker for when the watch
falls on the target time, I feel the reassurance that this is a functioning watch that the spectator
was handling adds to the already clean ending.
Overall, fantastic trick for casual
situations, or opening your show, far from a show stopper, far from a magician fooler, but a great
use of ungimmicked everyday items, that could be subbed for items and gimmicks you can use
afterwards (again with thy will by done transitioned to double cross, or whatever you want).
Thank you, and have fun
