Just a heads up that, way ahead of schedule, the new DVD has been completed and The Visionary 2.0 is now available.
It was due to be out on Halloween, but demand was such it had to be brought forward.
It was originally only available as an upgrade for people who had bought V1.
But now it's available as a stand alone item.

Perform in any language.
Learn the method in minutes.
Fits in a pocket,fills a stage

Here's some demos:
Three links for three clips. Phases 1, 2 & 3
Phase 1: https://youtu.be/rA3cza4vKqM
Phase 2: https://youtu.be/hLrn33DNwN4
Phase 3: https://youtu.be/duIzYP9D7Nc

Guys, I love Visionary 2.0 too. I do have a question: From your experience, are the symbol cards likely to be VERY durable, or should they be laminated?

I have used my set a lot and they seem durable and not suffered in any way.

Laminate. I always laminate. Spill proof, dog eared proof. Wipe clean.

I would laminate. I forgot my case and kept my cards in and out of my pocket for about 3 hours and they look beat up now. Don't understand why because I had nothing else in that pocket. I tried wiping them and no luck. Very strange. Don't get me wrong- I still love this effect- just awesome!

I actually like my cards a little scuffed.
I pass them off as well used test cards from some research facility.

But I can understand why some would decide to laminate them.
The only downside is that they are then three times as thick and three times as heavy

I actually agree Steve. Gives the cards a little more authentic look. But those who do not want that I was just posting what could happen.

I put together a little saying that helps me remember my cards. If anybody is interested in it just PM me with proof of purchase and I will gladly share.

There's a very cool Facebook group set up for Visionary owners.
Lots of great ideas there.

PM me for details.

Ordered and looking forward to hopefully using it at a gig in a few weeks. Seen this performed live by a friend and it is strong.

Stephen:

What are the seven languages, so far? (I predict the number will reach over 100!)

Okay, Visionary 2.0 is becoming my #1 prop for walk-around and closeup performances. Currently, I also typically carry a haunted key, and the Piatnik 5-color ESP deck, Conan Doyle's Bad Penny, Lee Earle's Alphatized deck, and sometimes copper/silver or mental logs, and I am always ready for an Equivoque routine I adapted from Eugene Burger.

But ALL of those are "one trick ponies," or nearly so. With Visionary 2.0, I do versions of Stephen's first and third effects. I do not do a drawing dupe because I don't do drawing!

After days of reflection, I now have a premise I like for doing OOTW with two people. I invite people, perhaps a couple, who "have some differences" with each other. I invite them to choose which cards (face down) to keep, intuitively. Sure enough, the reveal shows that they have differences! I'd be interested in the community's other approaches to OOTW with V 2.0.

Just got this fantastic effect. The teaching on the DVD is excellent. The effects you can do with this are mind blowing and you can easily get a full 30 minutes of solid mentalism from this.

If you are in any way still on the fence. Don't be - best £35 I've spent in a long time.

Hi Stephen:

There is a national language for education, government, commerce, and so on in Indonesia; it is traditionally call Bahasa, a Malay language. The nation is linguistically heterogeneous. While most people can function in the official language, in their homes, villages, and dreams they speak several hundred different languages. Visionary 2.0 could, of course, be performed in any of those languages. It is not at all inconceivable to see the props entertaining people in far more than 100 languages.

Since this could be down even without speaking I would love to see this performed in sign language.....
