GERTI by Romanos
 
Available from http://www.MagicTao.co.uk
 
Price: £12.99
 
Demo:
http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=oLDCZ90rL......a_player
 
Effect:
 
If you have ever wanted to perform a ‘coin in which hand’ type of effect, ‘Gerti’ is for you.  You have two coins; you ask a spectator to sign one of the coins.  You invite the spectator to place one coin in your hand and one other coin in their own hand. Without looking you are able to reveal which of you has the signed coin. You can also tell which hand holds which dated coin. 
 
Routines:
Lie Detection – You have two coins of the same denomination, one signed by the spectator. You turn around and the spectator keeps one coin and places the other in your hand. You then reveal who has the signed coin.
Dates  - You have three coins of the same denomination. The spectator mixes the coins and then places one coin in your left hand, one in your right hand, and keeps the third coin them self. You then reveal what is the date of the coin in your left, your right hand and, finally, the spectator’s hand.
Numbers – Similar to the ‘dates’ routine, but you number the coins and reveal who has which numbered coin.
Thoughts:
 
As people here on the café know I am well up for effects and idea’s that are made simple yet still have that hard hitting impact, GERTI was no exception, I have seen similar effects like this using all sorts of crazy gadgetry and electronics using magnets etc etc, Im not knocking them either as they are all good ways to perform this type of effect.
 
GERTI has something that really made my day, and that is the SIMPLICITY, the method behind this is my type of thinking, the gimmick is clever and undetectable, everything looks as it should. The lie detection routine is brilliant, simple in plot but truly baffling to the spectator; I also hear that this fooled Garret Thomas, Andy Nyman and John Archer which shows just how deceptive this is.
 
Overall:
 
GERTI is a great little effect, can be carried around with you at all times, takes up no pocket space and works in all enviroments.
 
Great work Romanos, gets my recommend, a good worker.
 
All the best

You don't mention if this would look a bit out of place in the U.S or Europe?

I had a friend buy this at Blackpool. Super simple in method but so deceptive in routine. I'm waiting for the euro version to arrive.

Love it, I'm using the first phase of Gerti as a great lead-in to Coinvexed 2 with the signed coin ;-)

Got this yesterday at the Wessex Magic Association Convention after being fooled by it, the method is genius and flawless - haven't had a chance to use it yet but it's the sort of trick that you just know will be killer - I love Gary's idea of leading into a coin bend using Gerti.

Don't really get this effect.

If I was to subtly edge nick a couple of coins out of three, and memorise the date on all three coins, would I not be able to accomplish the exact same effect.

Hope I am missing something obvious.

Why the need to purchase specific coins e.g. EURO, DOLLAR, UK ?

Regards,

Ian.

I wasn't going to bother with this as its only really a 50/50 at times...but....if you combine this with the business card bit in Andrew Gerards 'Street Cents' you may have something much stronger.

Westo, I didn't understand when you said it is only 50/50 at times? You are 100% correct every time.

Whoops! I meant, like in Lie Detector, you will always be correct but it is still just a 50/50 chance in the spectators eyes, if you know what I mean.

This is exactly what I thought when I saw the demo.

I likd the trailer: http://www.youtube.com/watch?feature=pla......CZ90rLzg

It will only be about $26 in the U.S. for the quarter version. With the proper routining, this could be very strong.

I'm thinking using it with the Electric Touch Plus.
