Im sure one of the great thinkers on here will come up with a routine using these cards and totally floor me. I had one well known Mentalist fry me with a stripper deck a while back.

Im working on coming up with a good routine using these cards that is "out of the box".

These decks have more versatility than a Swiss Army knife.

Perform a poker demonstration with a game of Low Ball - The hand with the 2D will always win! ;-)
How many magicians does it take to change a lightbulb? Regardless, for magicians darkness is a time for d'lite.

Has anyone used Mastermind for the third phase of Osterlind's "Artificial Intelligence"? It would seem to be a natural fit.

I had not heard of this before.

All this true?


1. No forcing procedure of any kind is ever employed! This includes psychological, mathematical, spelling, timing or classic. Just fair, free, and clean.
2. No roughed cards.
3. No duplicate cards relied on.
4. No stacked arrangements.
5. No Himber Wallets or switching of envelopes or cards ever!
6. The prediction card is actually in the envelope for the entire week. It is the same card removed from the envelope by the mayor!
7. Even if the prediction is tampered with, the outcome of the trick will remain unaltered. (This is a first in prediction effects!)
8. Can be done as a test in telepathy between two cities over the telephone.
9. Absolutely no sleight of hand required!
10. No long or short cards employed.

Saysold1, of course, #3 couldn't be correct. I guess that's from the audience perspective.

Thanks for your valuable input!

If you let the creative juices flow, this deck opens a lot of doors.
"The New York Papers," Mark Twain once said,"have long known that no large question is ever really settled until I have been consulted; it is the way they feel about it, and they show it by always sending to me when they get uneasy. "

This is on my radar again.

"Chris Kenworthey's Mastermind (Any Card at Any Number) has been featured by Kreskin on both "The David Letterman Show" and "Live with Regis and Kathy Lee." Many top performers such as Wayne Houchin, Kreskin, etc. have stunned audiences using this powerful weapon in their daily work".

Seeing Mark Balay demo it, it looks fantastic:

Zombie,

Thanks for posting the Demo. I am a big fan of The Mastermind Deck. It is more than just a one trick pony. Great routine by Mark Balay.

Good magic for sure.

CardMaker, the youtube clip worked and looked great, ( love Take Five playing ) but it calls the deck something else, not Mastermind.

@Zombie Magic
It is called Monte Cristo Deck because that's what is originated from (see me website).
It is the same gaff as the Mastermind Deck + CardMaker's extras ;-)
And that was me performing ... the trick, not the fine music.

@all
2,000 were made - less than 15 are still for sale. Then these are gone forever.

Combine two Mastermind Decks to make one deck. This way you can use two spectators and have two different results.


You can even combine a Mastermind or Monte Cristo Deck(!) with a regular deck. Then you can show the cards before and after the selection!


What a nice idea! Lots of interesting possibilities.

Just as follow-up for anyone not aware of this, there's a lot of discussion about Wayne Houchin's effect "Houdini's Influence" on previous pages of this thread. This routine is based on the MM/MC deck. It is available on his website now, whereas you used to only be able to get it at his lectures.

After purchasing I don't know how many gaffed decks and cards over decades, as well as numerous implementations of ACAAN, I was floored with how simple, deceptive and powerful Mastermind is. It looks SO clean, and being slight-free, there's really just nowhere for the spectator's mind to go with this one, presented correctly. I have just realized that several versions of the deck are available, with different outcomes, and I will probably purchase one of each to allow deck switches for multiple presentations without the same card prediction. I just wish I could get a discount for having already purchased the secret once Smile.

Thanks to videoman for the info above about Houchin's "Influence", which I just purchased from his web site as well. A different presentation, and no deck of cards required? Interesting. While I can figure out what he's doing, based on knowledge of Mastermind, I figured I'd show support and actually purchase the product rather than producing my own photos. Foe anyone interested, there's a Youtube video of Wayne performing Influence on YouTube at: https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=AZHiZDj66Xc

As far as "Houdini's Influence", I am a little bit conflicted on this one. It is natural to fan the cards out on the table overlapping. It does not seem so natural to be covering up a majority of the pictures of cards.

How does the Mastermind deck compare with Brent Braun's Position Impossible?
