Mentalism 101 Trick Dennis Loomis
The performer places a sealed envelope in full view, explaining that it contains a prediction of something that has not yet happened. Next, he spreads a deck of cards face up on the table and removes the joker. He gives the deck to a spectator who cuts it several times and then shuffles the deck. After cutting again if they wish, the spectator deals cards off of the top of the deck into a pile on the table. At any point that they wish, they stop dealing. The spectator removes two cards from either the top of the packet of cards on the table, or from the top of the deck remaining in their hand. They then choose just one of the cards. The performer reads their mind successfully and tells them which card they chose. But, that's not all... the performer then opens the envelope and tips out one playing card. Nothing else remains in the envelope, and the card matches the card the spectator chose!
This incredibly strong effect defies explanation. A powerful combination of 6 different principals of magic and Mentalism is used. Each one is baffling in its own right, but together they create an unfathomable mystery.
Your Mentalism 101 set contains:
- A Bicycle Brand Koran Five Star Miracle Forcing Deck (101 Deck) with marked force cards.
- A "Loomis" style double envelope and instructions for making more.
- 2 Double Face Cards which match the force cards in the 101 Deck.
- Complete printed instructions on how to perform two versions of this mind boggling routine.
- A 35 minute instruction DVD on which Dennis Loomis performs and teaches the routine, and teaches you how to make the necessary double envelope.
- Instructions for another strong prediction routine utilizing double envelopes. (originally marketed as the "Triple Prophecy Box.")
What People Are Saying:
"Mentalism 101 is an excellent mental effect. This is a welcome departure from the truncated, one page instructions that usually accompany dealer items. I compliment you on the very thorough and professional manner that you employed in preparing and packaging Mentalism 101."
"Mentalism 101 is both an excellent effect for the beginner in Mentalism and a potential stunner for the experienced performer. For the novice, Dennis Loomis has provided some of the best instructions for any effect I've ever seen. Mentalism 101 lives up to its name, as it's almost a mini-course on several useful principles. For all, he's provided an effect with much adaptability, even going so far as to include two different but useful methods of revealing a prediction. More than a simple effect, it is an effect you will actually use!"
