This was another pre-launch product I got to play around with at the Vanishing Inc booth while at Genii. For those of you who aren't familiar with the routine, here it is:



This one is great. The method is SUPER simple, you can pick it up in under five minutes. You get everything you need in this really nice box, with the exception of a scrabble dictionary. This is something else I'll be putting into my next show. The word revealed is different than the one on Fool Us, but it would be really simple to change that. The props are very well made and should last you pretty much forever. No idea when this will be released to the public as it's not on their site yet, but I would grab this one if you can!

Hey guys!

This will be out very soon!

We did a little pre release at the Genii convention and the response was overwhelming!

So excited for the full release happening very soon!

Hey friends!

WordSmyth by Francis Menotti is now available!



We are very proud to present Francis Menotti's hit effect, which just fooled Penn & Teller. Wordsmyth is mentalism with fascinating props and an intriguing plot.

Image


In an amazing coincidence, a spectator randomly selects a word from a dictionary as participants take randomly selected Scrabble tiles from a net bag. These tiles are formed into any word...that perfectly matches the prediction.

Like all of Francis's work, this is everything we love about great magic. He has spent years refining the presentation and method, he has chosen an offbeat premise, and he has whittled it down to the potent essentials. It is, truly, a worker.

What do you get, you ask? Everything. You get the forcing bag, the necessary Scrabble tiles, the custom made tray for the tiles (which has the slickest switching device you can imagine built into it), the fake-tip pencil, and the perfect storage case to keep the props together. You also get a DVD detailing every aspect of the trick and presentation. The only thing you need to supply is a soft-back book or dictionary.

Is it hard to do? Not at all. This is one that you can insert into your parlor show to add something truly unique and different.

What if I'm performing in another language? Bueno! Bien! Gut! We have decals available upon request so you can force words in German, Spanish, and French. You can choose these when you add the product to your cart.

"If you like to stupefy, mystify, and flabbergast your audiences, then you will definitely want this lexical trick which will amuse, delight, charm, and entertain the most discriminating crowds (not to mention deceive, fool, and hoodwink them)."

100%

I feel like this would be great for that, it would be the perfect amount of time and have a nice build to a killer ending!

We deliberately included a different word to the one on the trailer (and on Francis’ Fool Us performance). It is not easy to switch out different words, but we don’t feel like this is a trick you would repeat as such. If you ever want to permanently switch your force word we do have a few replacement gimmicks with another word and would be happy to help

Can you tell us the word. I only ask because I do a lot of message magic and if that word can link into some teaching point that is an added bonu
