What mental effect do you know with a stacked deck? (not mnemonica)


I don't do much mentalism, so the only effect I know is OOTW, with a stacked deck...if you consider OOTW to be mental effect...

There are many spectator cuts to the aces plots which are easy to construct a way that doesn't disturb the order, for example Randy Wakeman's excellent "spectator on stage" (Apocalypse, June 1987). You can follow with a Twisting the Aces and the Christ/Aronson Aces (see Simon's website). Three short and visual effects which don't disturb anything. I do this sequence often. Jan


I'll give this a try. Many thanks!

See my post further up! Smile Galaxy should be performed as a mentalism item.

Mental effects: Here are two of my all time favorites: Histed Heisted and 4 Part Harmony, both are Simon Aronson's. Jan

To make it complete: "There are many spectator cuts to the aces plots which are easy to construct a way that doesn't disturb the order, for example Randy Wakeman's excellent "spectator on stage" (Apocalypse, June 1987). You can follow with a Twisting the Aces and the Christ/Aronson Aces (see Simon's website). Three short and visual effects which don't disturb anything. I do this sequence often."
Often after that I follow with "Twice as Hard" (Simon Aronson's ACAAN with 2 cards and 2 numbers!) followed (and closing) with OOTW using the memdeck with all the cards always face down. This hard to beat. Jan

Love the Cards in Pocket effect using Richard Osterlind's Breakthrough Card System. Helper cuts the deck, takes two cards face down and places them in two of their pockets unseen. I then ask the helper to call out the names of the card values from 1-2-3 to J-Q-K, stopping them on one of the values. I ask them to name the suits at random, again stopping them at a value. They are then invited to pull out the card from their first pocket - which matches the card we just 'deduced from their voice pattern'. I reiterate the fact that they must have had a subliminal feel for the card despite the fact they had not seen it and that I too had a 'feeling' about another card - which turns out to be the one in their other pocket.

You find them in "Bound to Please" and "The Aronson Approach". I think you should have these books. Jan

Four aces followed by a royal straight flush on top of the deck allows many possiblities.

Overhand shuffle with faces toward the audience, pull an ace each time.
Have the spectator say stop... repeat. Then you will have an ace on each pile and also a royal on top of one. You are set up to do Maxi-Twist

JanFoster: What's your opinion of Aronson's newest book, Try the Impossible? Would you get that over "Bound to please" for instance?

No, there are all good, I recommend all of them very highly! My favorite is still "Simply Simon". Jan

I agree with Jan... all of Simon Aronson's books are great. If you are going to pursue memorized deck work, you will want to get Bound to Please first. In there Simon explains his memdeck stack, teaches you how to memorize it, and explains all of the built in effects which he built into the stack. (Of course, after the stack was created, many other effects which utilize it were created and there are some of those in Simon's other books, on his website, and on my website.
