***NEW FOR 2022 ***

Two new mentalsim routines for 2022

‘311’ (PDF) £25

 

Three thoughts, one billet, one envelope!

An updated twist on Annemann's classic effect 4th  Dimensional Telepathy. Streamlined so as to use just a single envelope.

It includes two methods that allow you to cleanly place a billet (your business card) containing three written thoughts, into a single envelope and imediately pass it to a spectator to hold. You never peek at the card before it is placed into the envelope yet you can go on to reveal the three spectators freely chosen thoughts. Similar plots exist but both methods are probably the cleanest you could hope for. A detailed 14 page PDF complete with clear instruction on how to create all you need for both methods.

“With 311 John has created an extremely direct and efficient method for the classic 4DT. He’s managed to trim away all of the procedural ‘fat’ and left us with a lean, clean and mean routine! This is definitely worth knowing.”

- MARC PAUL

‘TEN GREEN BOTTLES’ (PDF) £15
 
This is a fun comedic mentalism routine to perform in a bar or restaurant that fully suits the location. A prediction is placed under a beer bottle and the spectator is serenaded and then asked a very odd question. When the prediction is opened it is correct. This will suit the eccentric performer out there who likes to be a little different... You could of course just play it safe, either way, it's a clean easy effect to perform.

THE TRICK THAT FOOLED PENN & TELLER

A Bank Night routine that is as clean as they come.

Without any suspicious moves the final envelope opened and several bank notes are clearly taken from within. They are not folded and clearly seen coming from the envelope. No body loads, switches or TT.
