Anyone got this yet and prepared to give their thoughts on it?

How long does it take to prepare the borrowed deck? Are the "preparations" vulnerable to detection when you return the deck?

Can you give a description of the effect or provide a link?

"The Lolita System by Docc Hilford is a brand new method for transforming a borrowed deck of cards into an automatic killing machine!

Docc Hilford has devised a simple yet highly effective system that can be applied to any borrowed deck of cards in minutes, making the free selection of any card or pair of cards instantly known! Here are just a few of the effects possible:

Two cards and a word are chosen by three spectators. You hypnotize a woman who reveals the names of the cards and the chosen word!

You write three different predictions, each with a spectator's initials on them. The spectators freely select cards and your predictions match the selections!

A spectator secretly chooses two coins from his pocket. Another freely chooses two cards. The values of the coins and cards are added together. You know the total, the values of the coins, the names of both cards and even the date on one of the coins!

This system took years to develop along with the audience-tested routines. Now you can perform miracles without sleight-of-hand or memory techniques."

This sounds like something he did on his "Killer Mentalism with Cards" video. It's been a while since I've seen it, so I'll have to check...

Speaking of Docc, does anyone have his Real Mind Reading video? It's advertised as a three part routine, where a thought of card, word, and picture is revealed. Without giving out the secret, are these three effects performed in succession for a reason? Can they be performed separately, in and of itself?
(I hope you get my drift)

Re: Real Mind Reading

I think they are performed in succession for a reason. Namely, the first effect is not 100%, so if you don't hit it, you move onto the other two, which are more reliable. Each effect can be performed separately. Those are:
#1. A think of a card effect, which is similar to the kind Derren Brown explains in Pure Effect.

#2. A book test with a dictionary, which is similar to Larry Becker's Flashback.

#3. A design duplication, which relies on a principle covered in the first volume of Wonder Words and is very clever (but you can't perform it for only one person; the other two, though, can be performed one on one.)

Hope that helps.

Getting back to the original post: Does anyone have any reviews?

"... method for transforming a borrowed deck of cards into an automatic killing machine!"
Without giving too much away, does "transforming" mean doing something to the deck (possibly a set-up), or is it a fancy way of saying "using"?

If I may contribute my humble bits, you need to be able to do a false shuffle. Hope that help answers your "transforming" question Jackson.
But the system is great - fools laymen.

So is it a stack?

Thanks. Yes, I'd like to know if it is a stack. And any additional information would be very welcome. Perhaps we could consider starting a thread in the Secret Sessions.

The marketing copy is somewhat confusing on this point (and isn't that what marketing copy is for?). So if somebody could please PM me: is the Lolita System simply a stack ala Si Stebbins, or a memorized stack ala Nicola (mneumonic) or Dyment (algorythmic)?

And what are its advantages over others of its kind?

Much thanks,
Neil

It is like the Nikola System, but without the memorization. This is a very cool stack with many uses. I recommend this highly. Smile
