There is an effect that is very much like mental epic. It us done with a deck of cards. It can be a borrowed deck. Spectator freely chooses three cards. Magician chooses three cards, using
his/her "mental abilities". All pairs match. The doing of the effect mimics, more or less, mental epic. This is performed on a table. Can someone tell me the name, and/or, where to find this?
Thank you. Kim Meacham

"Sophisthree" (by me) is similar to what you're describing. It does not use methods related to Mental Epic. If you want to see it, there's a video of it in the video section of my website.

Glad you like it! One nice thing about Sophisthree is that ALL THREE participants do exactly the same thing. There is no weird change of procedure for the third choice.

For an excellent version of the trick outlined by OP, check out Marlo's version in the Cardician.
