Does anyone have this? Looks good. I hope it's original.

What does the Barnum Effect have to do with the Barnum Effect?

I don't know how long he's been performing this, but it APPEARS (I don't own 'The Barnum Effect', so I can't say for sure) that we've stumbled upon the same effect. I've been performing something like this for years that is essentially the same thing. It had its roots in 'Symbolic' from "World of Super Mentalism II" by Larry Becker. I read it and instantly realized that this could be altered to be a little stronger.

As it is now out there already, I'll contact Gareth and share my take with him and see how close each of is to the other's approach. If we are as spot on as I think, I'll offer my handling and let him share it with his purchasers if he chooses (I'm partial to my imagery).

Best,

I got this (why am I so curious?)

I would like to do a full review but in 5 seconds:

It's exactly what it looks like on the demo (no surprises in method) which is fine if there's some great tips, which there aren't
the cards are nice-ish, you can examine the cards, and the bit of paper

it has cut out some difficulties in other effects but has left some questions that I would have wanted to get rid of if I were to release something - it's two effects put together
I wouldn't buy it again, but because I have the cards in hand, I am more likely to actually pick it up and do it
also... people have questioned the wording of similar products regarding the selection process, it's not quite as it seems

Plus there was a final thoughts section where it sounded like he was just making things up

Can you believe I've been wrong on

Two questions:

1) Does the magician need to touch the envelope after the spectator's selection? Or, could the envelope be being held by a different spectator and after the selection that spectator can open the envelope and reveal the card?

2) Is it always the same revelation or if you're doing strolling, could you alter the revelation so that everyone doesn't hear other groups having predicted the same thing?
