Hey guys,

So I wanted to chime in here and tell you about a brand new release from Kenton Knepper called THOUGHT CARDS.

If anyone saw the FCM Interview Peter Turner, Atlas Brookings, Fraser Parker, and Luca Volpe did to Kenton Knepper, you will know that Kenton performed a piece for Peter that blew Peter away.

Basically he had Peter think of a playing card, and tell nobody, he then started to divine the card. It looks that clean via Skype, and on stage. You can use a deck of cards, or you don't have to.

Obviously there is something here that's involved, but you shouldnt worry about it.....Peter can attest to this when he gets a chance, but its as clean as it gets.

You get a 29 page ebook as well as the necessary gimmicks to perform this piece. There are several ways you can perform this, and Kenton lets you choose whatever way you want.

It is $24.95, not very expensive, and you can add this to your close-up or stage/parlour repertoire, which I plan to do.

Kenton has taken a very old principle and spun it on its head. I currently use this principle for something else, and am glad that it has been applied here.

You can purchase it at www.wonderwizards.com

I get nothing for promoting this, you have to see the video to know what I'm talking about, to see how clean it looks, and how it felt, especially for Peter Turner.

Any questions, let me know

Thanks

I believe that what is shown on the video is the "best case scenario"---correct me if I'm wrong. I reiterate to potential customers---there are many presentations, and what is seen on video happens to be the best case scenario.

Hi Mike,

Yes and No, there really is no best case scenario. and there really is no worst case scenario.

cant explain much more without tipping the method, but I plan to use this in some of my parlour shows, its that good.

i like it a lot...

not that hard to do...........presentation driven effects are everything, you don't care about the props....remember this way up........just an example, of how props don't matter.

i have been performing this all day today, and it gets a good response.

I will try it out on stage, which I think will kill.

I stand corrected, but there are "better" and "worse" case scenarios, right? (even if they are not the best and worst, per se).

Mike

So you go to the ad and its quite explicit that the spec picks a card from a chart with rows and rows of cards and tells you how many rows their card is in and, using the power of your mind, you can tell them their card.

A variation on the kind of thing you used to get in kids magic sets.

And Pete was blown away by this was he.

Jeez !!!

SO the presentation on the you tube video is not accurate?

It is, yet its not.

You are not seen the full potential of this.

I have used this already on stage, and it kills.

It all depends on how you use it.

For clarity from the ad ;



Someone thinks of a card. The performer hands the participant a sort of 52 On 1 chart, but made up of many decks. With a few simple questions and some sort of "mental training" the performer KNOWS what card a person has in their mind only.

Unknown to all but a select couple of people Kenton performed this at MINDVENTION. NO ONE KNEW, not even the biggest names in mentalism in the audience, how Kenton was able to predict for certain a card someone in the audience only had IN THEIR MIND. That secret is in this work!

Take THOUGHT CARDS with you and perform it anywhere. There are many applications, but here are a few:

* A performer has a radio interviewer look at rows of cards to see if a card the interviewer is thinking of is in some of the rows. The performer, long distance, names the card they are truly only thinking about.

* A member of the audience merely thinks of any playing card. The performer removes six playing cards claiming he has the whole deck whittled down to these six. The participant is put into a trance and starts to see their card on more than one of the six cards! Then the performer names the card the participant admits they have only been thinking about.

* A friend thinks of any playing card. The performer shows a chart of eight rows with about 20 to 30 cards in each row. Testing mental ability and memory, the performer asks which rows the person sees their card in. The performer removes one card from the deck and it is the thought of card. The card appears in many rows (perhaps) but the performer always knows which card is theirs.

* On platform or stage, (as Kenton secretly did at Mindvention and no one knew!) this may be used to know before the show what card a person has only in their mind. This is not an "instant stooge" but a diabolical approach to knowing a thought of card for certain, even though no one thinks you could possibly know what it is.

I personally use it like this:

Ladies and Gentlemen,

I downloaded it today.

There appears to be a wee bit of an issue. Nothing big. I did send a note to Kenton pointing this out.
I can say no more about it here without giving things away. PM me if you want to know. It is easily remedied. I really like this simple effect and
will be using it Friday night.

Interesting, just a single question:

Does this method work in any language or just in english?

I cannot see why this would not work in any language.

In addition, I am happy to point out this minor problem IF you already own Thought Cards. And it is 100% not a reason
to buy them now.
