I had a chance to read through this and feel this will be a great addition to your impromptu effects.

Effect is basically this.
An over the phone reading is offered. Spec selects a card from a deck.No forces. Magician dials Psychic Friend's number and the only thing said to the person on the phone is "can you do a reading?". Phone is then handed to the spectator. While first spec is getting a reading, a second spec is asked to write down any card on a piece of paper. Psychic friend nails the first card and you ask him to do a second card. The first spec selects another random card and Psychic friend nails it again.
Finally, the first spec hands phone to second spec. Psychic friend also gets theirs correct.

Uses no txt messages, no pics, the other person on the phone can be anywhere in the world and perform this. It can be done with any deck and the thought of card is exactly that, merely thought of and can be absolutely any card.

I have Believe, unbelievable, and this wonderful effect. All of these are real workers that are described well in the instructions. These are created so that the performer can concentrate on the performance.
ANOTHER GREAT ONE FROM Aaron!

Ive seen something simular on Tim Ellis tape "Ellis in Wonderland" called : Cellular Thinking which is also 100% impromptu and requires no skill at all,no memory work for the psychic friend etc.
My question would be : Does those named points above apply to BJ´s Phone Test aswell?

Cosmicsecret,
BJs Phone Trick uses verbal coding like most Mr. Wizard effects. It is the combination/ or layering and streamlining of the effect that I feel makes it unique. So there is memory work, but what is required to remember is so easy.

I don't think there is any skill involved - with the exception of the memory work.

Does Ellis' effect allow for two selected cards and a third thought of card?

Hey Cosmic,
The Ellis effect is brilliant. I have the notes and I've seen the lecture. One of the best lectures I've seen.
BJ's Phone Test is a totally different method. Add the both together in some way and you could have a lot of fun with this. You could use the BJ's portion to do card work and use the Ellis method for a killer kicker non-card ending. Let your mind run wild with this. You could be onto something. Have fun.

What if you did Believe and end with calling the Psychic friend to reveal the name of the word that the spec thought of?

In other words, you open envelope to reveal card and lay it face up on the table. Calling psychic friend to reveal a word...then reveal that word on the back of the card.
Pay it forward

HA-HA. I love it. You could really freak folks out with that. Laymen would love it and magicians would be floored.

Whatever the effect, make it original, make it yours.

Never mind. I found the link on another thread. Both effects look pretty promising!
