There are 3 files you can watch. Demo #3 is smaller size, you can try that one.

Can't wait for June 1st. I hope Bernd would really give a good price for the members.

I received my Mastermind Deck a week ago. I was upset to find that I got the one in a million..err..5,000 dud deck that was misprinted! The back design was shifted to one end making the cards look distorted. I know there are small variances (particularly important when doing T&R, so the borders match) but this was HUGE..like a half of a border on one edge...and the other end looks like an edgemarked deck, with the ink from the set behind it running in on a few cards...I am getting a new one from the dealer, but IT HAD TO BE ME!! Now I have to wait to use it, but it's the price you pay. Still, from playing with it in private, it really is a keeper.

What's the Joker for? Mine got a card with the "Joker" word on the side. Is this important for the performance?

Mastermind owners... do yourselves a favor and find a copy of Wayne Houchin's "Influence." One of the best uses of the deck that I have come across.

Was it from a lecture note?

Does anyone actually use the Joker card in this deck? What or how do you use it?

A little update: the only thing I can found is from here: http://steveschneiderman.blogspot.com/20......ure.html

So Steve attended the lecture, I'm not sure if it's ethical to ask the effect only, NOT the secret?

That link says that it's a Monte Cristo deck, not a MM.

Hey guys,

I was at the San Antonio lecture and when Wayne performed the Influence effect he told us he was using the MM deck (however if memory serves me correctly I believe he DID also call it the MC deck).
I'm sure someone who also attended one of his lectures can confirm?

The effect was/is only available at his lectures. He never mentioned whether he was planning to release the effect or not.

Respectfully,
Rochaz

I didn't realize that Influence wasn't available outside of his lectures. I saw him last week at the Portland Magic Jam. He sold Influence along with a MM deck. I actually purchased it as part of an incredible lecture pack (9 DVDs, a download of Art of Magic, Influence with MM Deck, and an Ultragaff deck). A simple description of the effect wouldn't do it justice, so I won't even bother to try. Suffice to say, it is well worth finding one.

Jan-

I read that your ideas for MM and MC deck may be forthcoming soon from Cardmaker. Can't wait to read your ideas and thanks in advance for sharing!

I guess he has to translate from German eh?

For those who were hoping (like me) to pick up Wayne Houchin's "Influence" using the MOnte Cristo (or MM) deck - looks like he will be lecturing here in PHOENIX in December! Apparently the only place to get his "Influence" idea is at lectures - plus all the other amazing stuff that Wayne does like nobody else:
___________________________________
JUST BOOKED!!! Wayne Houchin, TUESDAY, December 7, 2010, Social hour 6:30, Lecture 7:30. I will be sending out a flyer ASAP on this amazingly talented magician!! PLEASE NOTE : This is NOT our normal day for a lecture. Wayne just happened to be near the area, just we were lucky to book him!!!

Both events will be held at Marie Callender's, 4573 E. Cactus Road, Phoenix, AZ 85032.

I just saw Wayne Houchin's fantastic lecture tonight in Phoenix - man is he an incredible artist (and a great person!).

I was eagerly awaiting seeing Wayne's "Influence" effect that was mentioned here on some earlier threads, and I was not disappointed. Wayne apparently only demonstrates this at his lectures, and in a nutshell it is not a Monte Cristo deck routine - but rather a fantastic & creative take on the Monte Cristo concept using a Houdini theme.

Wayne is so "organically" talented - his take on Monte Cristo was far more creative and uses many nice psychological subtleties. A winner for sure and I look forward to trying it.

Anyone should try to catch Wayne in person - One of the finest and smartest performers of our time.

Is there any chance to get the lecture notes for Influence? I'm dying to learn it.
