And the cards are ALWAYS dealt face down.

I realized I wasn't too precise with my wording here. I wanted to say that the cards are always dealt FROM the face down deck (and are of course turned over one by one to show they are all different).
No need to ever ask the spectator to turn the cards over and deal them from the face up deck. (I am saying this because that was one of my ideas until I bought the effect)
So for every possible number it looks pretty much the same (and perfectly natural).

I like this a LOT!!!!!!
It reminds me a little of X Ray(Ben Harris Steve Shufton)in it's totally hands off approach.

I am now playing with the idea of using one deck for NUMBERS and X RAY

I received this yesterday and am pleased to say that it does exactly what everyone else says it does. A great effect which is quick and easy to do. I think the speed with which it can be done is important as sometimes there is a need to get the job done and take the applause (or stunned silence). On those occasions when there is mileage to be gained from prolonging the effect then this can also be done. Greta stuff - congratulations Rus.

You can now get it as an instant download at: http://www.mentalshockproductions.com

I don't perform with cards but this... this is AMAZING!

NUMBERS is the only reason I carry a deck of cards.

When Rus showed it to me, I LOVED it so much that I wanted to be a little part of NUMBERS so I offered to design the PDF.

I performed it yesterday. It simply blows people away. I like to give the prediction to the spectator to hold so there is no chance that I could switch (that is different than the demo). Further, I make sure when I hand the cards to the spectator that I say that I will not touch the cards again. When I performed yesterday, the gentleman changed his mind three times on the number. When the prediction hit, he just laughed for 2 minutes straight. Again, great thinking Rus.

Had this for ages but only recently got round to trying it out. It's really really great!

The plus points for me on this one are that it is ACTUALLY hands off (a lot of things pretend to be), everything can be so casual (if you want it to be or could be MASSIVE and intense) and holds up to scrutiny. The prediction can be opened by the spectator, the cards turned over by the spectator, it's easy to perform.

Gonna be doing this a lot in the future! Recommend this to anyone looking for a great addition to their set (this will go in)

If for any reason someone buys this and doesn't like it, read it again and try it out, if you don't like it you are wrong. (in my opinion)

similar to other work by Rus, this reads very openly and I'm confident this could be adapted to suit most people.

A really exciting piece of work.

Thanks for your review Adam, glad you like the effect.

I'm currently working on a second ebook with a variation of ideas using methods similar to this.

Thanks again to all that have purchased this and supported my work. Means a lot.

Also thanks to mentalshockproductions.

All the best

Just wondered if anyone that has this has tried the bonus idea of using two decks?

I tried it last night and I was brilliant! Totally stunned the spectators that took part.

Very clever, if you haven't tried this yet give it a go.

I like the idea but what bothers me is if spectators select let's say numbers 24 and 31 - there is a slight difference in handling. I am not sure how to deal with it.
I still prefer regular version.

In response to the above, the two deck version is very strong and is truly baffling to laymen.

Yes you may have to handle the spectator a bit differently but the handlin is so minor it would go unnoticed.

It's all down to good audience management.

All the best

I just got this. It was a little hard to understand what to do but after reading it a few times I finally understood it.

This is a very cool idea!

I have to agree. I had to run thru it a couple of times as well.
