Imathination by the mighty BMWGUY….
 
I was sent this a few days ago and have finally found time in my crazy life to sit and soak up this new piece of madness from a great mental mind.
 
This is clever and as mentioned above the way this is layered makes the whole experience 100x more powerful, the use of another effect to flow into something completely different is genius.
 
The eBook is very well thought out covering every aspect of the effect with alternate ideas and presentations which is always a bonus as not every method suits every performer so to have other ideas is great.
 
Once again Alex, great thinking sir, appreciate you sending this over.
 
GETS A THUMBS UP FROM ME!
 
All the best

Decided to pick this up, ive read some of bmw guys earlier stuff and was impressed.
the ebook is great for some off the cuff mentalism!, using props a lot of people already own!
personally I don't like the powerball presentation (this is simply because we don't have scratch cards that look like that in england)
HOWEVER the rest of the book justifies the purchase for me as the other two mehtods and bonus handling of kiouku are great and fit my prefrence for material!
a great little ebook that will get your brain working on how you could use this in your act!

This routine has a few things going for it that makes it a very strong effect. I found it very interesting how the chosen card is arrived at.

I will be honest and say that I never liked Powerball 60. It just wasn’t my cup of tea. But in this routine it is used in a procedure that I didn’t think of. This is nice thinking!

I also liked the different variations that can be used. I found one idea to be really neat and that was acting as if you just had an idea, like an after-thought, and turning to the spectator and telling them that last bit of information. If done correctly it will blow people away. That was nice and I have already thought of how I will do that part of the routine.

Money well spent and it gave me ideas to work with.

I just finished Reading IMA(th)INATION by Alex, and I find the routine to be quite intriguing. Although this particular routine isn't something I can see myself performing personally, I definitely see the power in this method and presentation that makes this a real worker for real audiences.

This routine is practicle, easy to follow, and presents a fantastic demonstration of mind reading. I really enjoy the various layers that make this deceptive and more importantly interactive. I highly recomend this for poeple looking for a sure fire method of revealing a thought of card with minimal props and a strong effect. Thanks Alex!
It occured to me at once that love could be a great illusion, that makes fools of brilliant thinkers everyday

I just purchased and read this.This method works better with Powerball 60.However I am pretty sure I know the principle behind PB60 but it PB 60 is masked as lottery tickets.The work with the numbers is great because it adds amazement because the card is only in there heads and not written on a peace of paper plus it reminded me of Derren's Invisible deal for choosing a suit. ,but the Alex's take on the Dunninger ploy was just great that would absolutely kill the audience.Using Powerball 60 or Bill Dekel's Digit would be great with this principle.Great book

This is a slick example of what to do when you have a single piece of information. If you have or want to use PB60, this effect gives it a grand finish it never had before....this effect is much more than PB's revealing a number. If you go the other explained methods, you have a grand method of getting into their heads and feeding the info back to them... Guaranteed to drop their jaws.

I love the sneaky and invisible way Alejandro manipulates the spectator. This type of thing will be a wonderful concept for owners to explore further. For closeup and standup. If this one sounds good to you, if you think it might be right for your style, it will be. It does what they say it do!

I think the only performing requirements or limitations might be that you should be fairly sober. That's about it. Easy and strong!

I had the pleasure to read Alex‘ „Ima(th)ination“. It is his approach to realize a think of a card plot.

It uses a popular and marketed trick to arrive at a mentally chosen card. The structure of his routine is quite clever as it will make forget most people the way to arrive at a card. Alex offers nice hints and ideas concerning management and presentation. It shows clearly that he puts a lot of thoughts in his work. And if you want so you even could use his entire script.

Alex offers several variations for his procedure, full credit is always given where necessary. Additional you get two Bonus ideas for “Kioku”, “Powerball 60” and Dunninger’s “Think–A-Card”.

Without diminishing his work which I recommend in all honesty I’ve to state that I wouldn’t see me perform this plot using his method. For my taste it isn’t direct enough. But it offers a fine and quite easy solution for people trying to present something in this direction for the first time. More direct methods (like my “Jan’s Eyes”, a streamlined version of Simon Aronson’s “Simon-Eyes”) are often a bit intimidating. And for the prize Alex is asking you can’t go wrong as it might put you on a new journey anyway. Jan

Congrats Alex on a great marriage of presentation and method!
Nice to see Powerball 60 in a fully realized routine and script. Definitely recommended for those looking for a complete routine or those looking for a jumping off point to create their own.

Cheers

Alex sent me a copy of what shows his true enthusiasm for either Powerball (which he proved to have already long ago) and his Mental Communicator idea.
The basic premise is one I think people either love or hate - but if you do love it, Ima(th)ination really takes it a step higher in combining it with playing cards and some time tested subtleties.

No doubt this is mental magic with the main emphasis on magic (I guess that's what Jan was refering to: pure mindreading probably would look differently), but given the right presentation I have no reason to doubt this will play really nice!

Interesting read, thanks for sharing, Alex!

The more I perform this routine, the more powerful I realize this is. Knocking people out with this one. So many methods at play here, so well and seamlessly intertwined. Can't recommend it highly enough!

Wow!
I did skyped with Alex last night and I am really impressed with the way he takes simple ideas and changing them to some amazing effects.
Alex is a very creative, very clever and one of the good guys.
