"THE BUSINESSCOIN PREDICTION!"

Hey guys, here is a new effect of mine I hope to bring to the market—I plan to put it up on here through my site and on Ebay—but perhaps this will spark interest elsewhere as well. I want a few (five max) to receive it for free to review it here HONESTLY...and the reason I ask here is that those here seem to bring an intelligent discussion to mentalism.

I'm asking for the review to be conducted on the following criteria: impact on the spectator, portability, ease of performance, item provided, packaging and, most importantly, price ($8 pp) taking the above factors into play. Anyway, here is the effect:

The mentalist removes a business card from his wallet and places it face up on the table while stating that there is a prediction written on the back. He also removes several “imaginary” coins from his pocket and “places” those on the table as well. The spectator is invited to select one of the coins and “flip” it several times to prove it isn’t one of those “double-headed magic coins.”

The spectator flips the coin one last time and calls, with a completely free choice, which way it lands. NOW HERE IS THE KICKER ENDING!:

Say, for example, the spectator initially choses a quarter and after several “flips” he decides that it landed tails-side up. When the card is turned over the prediction reads: The QUARTER will be TAILS side up!!"

POINTS TO REMEMBER:
  • Only the one card used
  • Transfer to your OWN business card-material included
  • Card may be examined or given out at the end of the routine
  • GREAT spectator by-play and SO easy to do
  • Unconditional money-back guarantee
  • IT'S ONLY $8
  • PayPal welcome
If I have posted in the wrong forum please let me know. PM me or email
The first five members here that feel they can honestly review this on the above criteria please email me your address

Thanks!

There is something very similar in Richard Buch's peek performances.

Nice effect though, well done.

I may just be up in the night (heck, it's 2:30 am, I AM up in the night) but this sounds a lot like Maven's Positive/Negative on his Close Up Mentalism DVD. Am I mistaken?

Your EFFECT is only as good as its AFFECT.

Hey, guys. I now have a few that are willing to review (thanks!) and will be getting their copies out very shortly.

All of my inspirations are credited in the instructions. "Maven's" Positive-Negative is certainly one of those. Actually, as he credits in the video, the idea is Larry Becker's. Without giving away Positive-Negative I can say that while the PREMISE may seem to be similar, there are differences in the methodology: mine incorporates a gimmicked card. (And those who have the tape know that only ONE of the outcomes in Positive-Negative makes any sense.)

My card is in full view either outcome can be freely shown. Other huge inspiration for me on this were Osterland, Annemann, and some verbal touches that some may stretch to say may be credited to Knepper.

I think it's a keeper—I have with me in my wallet always and perform it often. I think those that purchase it will be happy with it as well, considering the effect it has, ease of portability, and what you receive (especially for the price).

I am looking forward to getting the review copies out and now have enough made to start taking orders.

P.S. As with all my effects on my site I take PayPal.

Thanks!
Bryn

Does the card have to mention US currency or is it possible to change it to another countries currency?

RowdiMagi: Thanks, but I already have a few. If you feel that this interests you, though, you have nothing to loose by ordering because, as with all my effects on my site, I offer a money back guarantee.

Grahamk5: The gimmicked card I supply is geared toward US currency but once you have it you will easily be able to adapt it to your own card in the currency of your choice.

Mindhunter, the effect sounds good. I have a question though, who turns the business card up, the performer or the spectator?

Claudio: There are scenarios in which the spectator can turn the card over to reveal the prediction; other times the mentalist will need to do it.

However, it's really a non-issue as the card is always in full view: no switches, envelopes, wallets, etc. for the revelation of the prediction on the back of the card.

Sound very good indeed. The most interesting part for me is that you can give out your business card in a very memorable way.

I will be one of the guys doing the review so I will post here what I honestly think of it as soon as I get the effect.

It may be the effect I was looking for to hand out my business cards.

Mariano: You are right, I think those with business cards will definitely take the five minutes, at most, it takes to convert this over to their own cards.

(My full-time employment business card is the one that you get, and although it would make for some interesting patter, you will of course want to make up a bunch of these as spares in your own cards should you have them.)

And something I forgot to mention in the ads and back-cover of the packaging is that I include the "probably-something-we-all-have-but oh-so-necessary-something" to do so. A nice little last minute-thought touch as I was packaging these, if I do say so my myself. Smile

I dropped off "several" (inside joke-wait till you get yours) of these at my local magic shop a few days ago for him to keep by the register and when I called him today to see if he had the "necessary something" mentioned above in stock, he asked me to make up a bunch to bring in. This made my day...I've been very busy making these up as that for the $8 pp price/$back guarantee, I've sold quite a few through him, private PM sales here and Ebay (username is BLADEWIZ, bty, and usually have magic or high-end tactical and military gear—either of which is usually good, but doesn't quite suit me—up there for sale.)

And Mariano, as a sidebar when you said you are "one of the 'guys' doing the review" I found it funny as AnnaBelle also has one on the way to HER...LOL! (Yours was shipped out to the beautiful Barcelonna today, bty.)

Thanks all,
BRYN

Mindhunter, your website reads that "all items are priced postage-paid". Does it apply to foreign orders? I live in the UK.

Claudio:

Sorry, no. I believe it reads on the ordering page that international shipping is actual. I've shipped a few orders of this to the UK and it would be $2 additional. (This cost applies to just about anything on my site to Europe with exception of the Casinos Deck & Kit, which is fairly heavy and that costs about an additional $4.)

You peeked my interest, looks like I'll be purchasing one and consequently doing a review on it as well.

I like the way you didn't avoid the questions like a good politician.

Thanks Alexandre. I don't try to make anything off "shipping & handling" (and why does one charge to "handle" their own product, anyway?)

I HATE when I want to order a $10 item and shipping is $6.95 or some other crazy amount! BusinessCoin only cost me 60 cents to ship anywhere in the US.

Looking forward to your order...

Bryn

Before I had eBooks on my website, I would ship my booklets out with S&H also included, I just thought it was easier for my customers and me.

I just ordered two of the BusinessCOINPrediction effects. One will be a gift. I believe in supporting quality work, and based on your business practices, the clear explanations, and the image I saw on your website of the card, I was sold!

Looking forward to it...

I do hope you enjoy Alexandre, and thanks.

IMPORTANT NOTE: (well it is at least important to me) I made an error in the credits of the first few that I sent out. I forgot to mention Richard Mark, whose mentalism work I admire for its direct method and entertaining presentations. His work influenced BusinessCoin and I inadvertently left his name out of the credits in the instruction sheets.

Please let this serve as credit to Mark for those copies sent out and the error will be corrected in future instruction printings. Smile
