Topic: Nique Tan's TAP (The Assignment Prediction)
Message: Posted by: Bartelli (Dec 23, 2020 04:54PM)
Today I read an amazing idea by Nique Tan. It is available here: https://www.niquetan.com/store
Full disclosure: I was given a free copy of this document, but I am going to send him the full amount he asks on his store.
He did not ask me to review this, he was so kind to send it to as a solution to a problem I had.

What is this? It's a clever and propless way to force and predict just about anything your audience can think of. The manuscript mainly deals with forcing a number, but Nique also mentions you can use this to force a drawing, a name, a place, any word, ...

I haven't tried this yet, but I believe this can work as good in a live show as online. If you are looking for a novel, easy and sure fire way to force anything you can think of, look no further.
The method is dead easy and not language dependent.

I can't say much more without going into the method.

It does not use:
* playing cards or blank cards
* weird boxes or bags
* electronics
* mental calculations
* weird scripting

As far as the audience is concerned all it uses is their minds and free choice.

There are some limitations to this method as there are with all methods. Unfortunately my English isn't good enough to talk about the limitations without giving away too much. But pick this up, you won't regret it.

Hi Bart,

Thank you for mentioning TAP here on The Café; am glad that you found it useful for your needs. 🤗🤗🤗

To all readers: [b]I never intended[/b] to plug this PDF on The Café. Some have asked for review copies but I declined. This isn’t sales tactics; I really had no intention to mention this on The Café and as Bart mentioned, I only gave him the PDF as a gift (he eventually kindly paid for it though - thank you Bart!) and never asked him to review this here. Why am I saying this? It’s because, since he’s started the ball rolling, I thought it appropriate to provide my complete ad copy, so that his post won’t seem to be in vain due to the lack of information. Again, this isn’t a sales pitch and my intent is just to provide relevant information to complement Bart’s post.

TAP is not so much an effect in itself, but a concept and a simple, logical piece of script that enables you to perform seemingly fair-looking and direct prediction routines, with variables that are apparently freely provided by audience members. This was originally conceived for live performances; however it is discussed in this write-up as adapted for my virtual show, "Nique Tan: Online".

[b]The Effect:[/b]

At the end of the show, the performer calls attention to 12 attendees. He tells everyone that before the show, he gave each of them a special assignment via private messages, while disseminating the Zoom meeting joining details to them.

They were each asked to take a piece of paper, write down a random 6 digit number and to have that piece of paper ready with them for the end of the show. Each of the 12 attendees verifies this to be true and can quickly flash their pieces of paper to their screens. All the numbers are seen to be different and random.

One of these 12 attendees is now chosen via any procedure the performer wishes to use. The chosen spectator now announces his random number to everyone and shows it written on his piece of paper. The performer can now show this number to have been predicted, or use it in any way he so chooses.


This is not suitable for close up performances. It was created specifically for online and live stage shows. TAP combines two classic mentalism strategies in an extremely simple, direct and deceptive manner. Rest assured that even if you have avoided such methods in the past, their use within the context(s) for which TAP was designed is fully justified - not to mention a joy to execute.

"I've had the privilege of viewing Nique's online show and can tell you - he knows how to deliver the goods! Performances over Zoom etc. present unique challenges, but TAP elegantly capitalizes on the distinct opportunities such platforms provide. The idea Nique outlines within this manuscript is greater than the sum of its parts and will open up a world of possibilities for mystery entertainers navigating this new era of virtual performances!" - Drew Backenstoss

"Nique composed here several methods and added a significant step that together creates an amazing and very strong effect. This is an excellent solution for zoom performances, and of course for live shows. I really liked his thinking and how he goes into the details. This is a combination of simplicity and sophistication that comes from an experienced professional mentalist." - Haim Goldenberg

"TAP is a sure fire way to know exactly what a spectator is thinking. This can be used in Zoom shows or live shows. It is something I will be using; everything seems super fair and nobody will have any idea how you TAPPED into your spectator's mind." - Maarten Bosmans

"TAP is a fantastic concept that can be applied to any live and online show. The script is very well thought out and the possibilities are endless. This is a real worker!" - Luca Volpe

Thank you all for reading this far and Merry Christmas to you all! 👍🏻👍🏻👍🏻

Seems like tap was ready to go on the Café. Why go thru the trouble of denying it then posting it along with the testimonials.

Heck man, promote yourself.

TAP was released in August this year on Lybrary. Had I the intention to promote it here as I did with my previous works, I would’ve done so back then.
