I bet you could make it work in Spanish. Just use a multi-syllable animal word for the second to last item.

If you have either of Jim Steinmeyer's books, Impuzzibilities or Further Impuzzibilities, both have some great effects you can do over the phone.

THANKS, got to try this! At what speed should I go when reading the list, I mean just in case, I do not want then to ask me to repeat it.

I tried it 3 times so far. Twice they said KEY and once the rabbit. I asked why the key and guy said that is the word he heard the most clearly. GOing to change the word KEY to TOP. I followed the instructions to the letter but wondering how to open with it. DO you just start reading the list, ask them to listen while you read off objects or what?

Like Slim asked above about repeating the list, I had one person ask me to repeat it, then got the word KEY.

In my opinion, the best book for phone tricks, both ones which require another person being keyed critical information in a coded manner BUT ALSO ones that you can just do yourself with the person on the other end of the phone is Lewis Jones' "Person to Person: A Book of Telephone Telepathy".

I would highly recommend Impromtu Influence U by Lee Earle and Larry Becker. I use this as a great tool to do an impromtu phone effect using my cell phone and working with several objects found at almost every restaurant or home you will ever be in.

This one effect has been a fantastic addition to my repetoire. I hate to tell everyone, but it's such a gem and I would feel bad if I didn't share it. Done properly it kills everytime and it is completely self contained and you don't need someone sitting by the phone.

Magically,
Max

Phone is a really great over the phone mind-reading impromptu card magic. But the person on the other line needs to know a certain shuffle for this to work!

Tequila Hustler works over the phone. I've also done it by text.

Wikitest by Mark Kerstein, I believe can be done over the phone and it is a fantastic trick. The only downside is it's a bit expensive. Completely worth it, though.

There are many effects that you can do over the phone using Inject 2.0

If you search for "inject magic" on YouTube, you'll find many effects where you don't have to touch your spectator's phone.

cheers,

I don't see why not. If you can call a hotline and pay a "psychic" to give you a reading, anything is possible!
Another good source for over-the-phone magic is the book "Party Magic from the Magic Castle" edited by Leo Behnke. Has a whole section devoted to this stuff.

Slim, it may well be out of print. Got my copy about 30 yrs ago. Incidentally, Leo Behnke was the Castle's "Magician in Residence" for a time, back in the day.
