Hi I have been off the magic scene for a couple of years. I am now looking for strolling menatlism magic. I know of two effects stealth and the starsign prediction. I am looking to add more to my repertoire. If you can give me advice on where I could locate walk around, strolling mentalism I will greatly appreciate it. Any books routines will be helpful.

The great thing is... almost all mentalism is suitable for walk around. Most mentalism is done with a minimum of props, making it very suitable for strolling entertainment. Look up Richard Osterlind. Anything with his name on it will start you in the right direction.

This is a great effect that I have been really enjoying doing lately, the best part is that it is a free PDF.It would make an excellent opener for a walk around mentalism set.

In Synch by Terry Elton is a very strong mental effect. A great opener and it really is spooky. It's one of my very favorite strolling mental effects.

A volunteer is asked to touch any card in the deck as you fan them. The selected card is immediately removed from the deck. The deck is then turned over & shown to be a blue backed deck. The selected card is turned over & shown to be the only red card in the deck & on the back of the card is written "I knew you would pick the (whatever the name of the card is)"

Mediocrity is greatly under rated!

I have a small equivoque I do regularly when the opportunity presents itself.

I also am about to start doing a new idea with the Wow gimmick by Paul Gertner, from his lecture. Really great.

Carefull on these! You can only get these from Mark directly. However, even though he will take your money, he won't send you the books. Seriously, he won't even answer my emails! (NOTE: if anyone has his phone number....please pm me...Thx!)

"Fortune" by Paul Hallas is also good in these conditions, along with "Warm Fuzzies Up Close" by Mark Strivings. Plenty of good suggestions above though.

Personally,I wouldn't have considered Kurotsuke for walk around but you do get groups big enough to use it for. Same with carrying a magazine around for a magazine test, though a small paperback can easily fit into an inner jacket pocket for a book test.

Consideration is for things that take up the least mount of room but will be used a lot with little reset (just as in table hopping close up). Whilst I've done it, was never a big fan of walk around mentalism in the UK for drunken company banquet crowds.

The best option is probably palmistry because you need NO props Smile

I have a gig tonight for 20 tables at a wedding reception and plan on doing the hoy book test. I found to small novels that fit into my coat pocket. Simple and direct mind reading for a table I believe.

Something along the lines of the bert reese billet routine I believe would work great if you get a nice presentation down

I personally perform "Into the Abyss" by Oz Pearlman, "Universal Impression" by Robert Smith and "Coinvexed 2" (sharpie edition) by David Penn. Three effects that kill the audience. Of course, any sources like Osterlind, "Practical Mental Magic" (Annemann) or the "thirteen steps" of Corinda are the basis to read carefully before any live attempt.

+1 There isn't much mentalism that you can't do in walkaround.
