Steve Young (so well known on the Café) recently sent me an item which he is very soon to release. Called ESPy-onage, Steve has designed a set of 40 cards and which takes the standard ESP card to a new level.

Not only does each card contain an ESP symbol but six other pieces of information, including initials, numbers, an arrow pointing in a direction, date, time and colour.

Thomas and Rainer from Paralabs have assisted in the production of these cards and with each being cleverly marked. However there are various ways to get the information the spectator is thinking of and to ascertain the contents of the card. However with a choice of 7 possibilities, ESPy-onage is very versatilte and opens the door to many possibilities.

Steve's instructions are not only comprehensive but he also sets out various routines and one I know I will definitely be using (and in place of the effect which I do with my current set of ESP cards.)

With the cards so authentic looking, well produced and capable of so much variation, I think the ESPy-onage cards are destined to become a favorite with many performers.

Here is the link for more details

Thanks for the comments Neil.

To be honest this is still a little underground. Only a handful of people know about it.
I'm still arranging things with Steve Brooks for a banner here on The Café (which should be ready in the next few days
Launch date is set for 10th August.

I've just been setting the last pieces in place on the website.
And putting the final touches to the instructions.

If anyone wants any more info just post your questions here and I'll answer them.

I love the idea behind this and the minimal, authentic look of those cards. Great stuff!

I can't take all the credit for the appearance of the cards. A great part of that honour, especially the backs, must go to Thomas at Paralabs.

Good luck with them steve!

I've had something pretty similar I got printed via moo.com for a few years now, alternative esp shapes, numbers, but I went with a place name and a word (and only 5 shapes)...

I may well treat myself to a set soon!

oooh and the O.A.P. pen kit too...

I was fortunate enough to be marginally involved into the process of the making of these cards, so I am most certainly biased! But as soon as Steve shared his ideas about the you derlyimg principle with me my interest was sparked and literally thousands of ideas popped into mind.

I absolutely recommend anybody interested in this project to stay tuned at least until first reviews come in - I am confident they will be a riot!!

Although only marginally involved in ESPy-onage, Nicolinos' ideas were not wasted.

He has made a substantial contribution to the follow-up effect in the series, Death Row.
His input has taken Death Row to new heights.

Death Row and ESPy-onage will, I hope, be a milestone in the way such effects are constructed.

I showed this to a friend of mine on Saturday.

I taught him the method in two minutes!
After that he could reveal every piece of data on every card.

Steve, was kind enough to send me the Instructions for this and I am really impressed. Not only do you have so much information on the card, but the cards overall look are outstanding.

The back of the cards are also amazing! These cards looks like something from a lab. They just look COOL! LOL

Just wanted to express my excitement about EPY-onage. I really can't wait to get my hands on the cards!

I posted my thoughts here http://themagiccafe.com/forums/viewtopic......rum=15&6

Steve is a "WICKED" man!

I second that. The thinking behind this is diabolical and the concept capable of so many variations.

What's the secret of getting copies of pre-release effects from the creator Smile Smile Smile

Anyway wish you good luck for the release Steve Young.
