Personally, I'm a huge fan of the Center Tear. I also like a quick version of Card Calling. I'd be curious to hear if anyone does PK touches for table hopping.

I usually have them do a drawing on a business card then do a peak and then "read their mind"

I use Scott Guinn's "Positive Increases". It's an improvement on his "Assertive Positive Negative". Uses nothing but a business card and a pen.
Wasn't sure the improvement would be worth the $10, but it is well worth it. It makes more sense.
I am getting so tired of slitting the throats of people who say that I am a violent psychopath.

I do a bit that Max Maven does. Easy enough to follow. Perfect for walk around.

I like king's prediction in an envelope w/ rubber bands.(So you don't have to reseal). You can play it as a spectator reading your mind about which king you reversed in the packet. Get's the ladies in the group smiling Smile

Tequila Hustler is great for strolling as a first phase for a longer routine.

Mind Buster by Labco and Inside Out by Promystic, using the color cube and/or Die. Also, the SUC wallet. After all the years and all the wallets, this still remains as my go to. One great fact of the SUC, you do not need to go back to the wallet to get your info, this was always a drawback for me. Just put it away and you got your info. Nothing is more simple than the SUC.

Hey Paul Rathbun,

Per your posting that started this whole topic (which is a topic near and dear to my heart), SYMBOL MINDED absolutely IS still available directly from me. As strolling effects go this is very hard to beat. For those who aren't familiar, it's a close up design duplication. Instant reset, no memory, different outcome every time (which is important when performing strolling), instantly (and endlessly) repeatable, packs very small, gives you the ultimate reason to leave a business card with your spectator, can play one-on-one or for a group, the list goes on and on. If ever there was a worker, SYMBOL MINDED is it. If you're interested in more info drop me a note. Thanks!

Agree with all the above. If you're working the wait area, plant Tru Test magazines for the patrons to read. Then you can do what really seems impromptu, and fry them bad. I do a lot of restaurants, and this is one of my favorite mental routines. Of course it only works in the waiting area.

A great one is to force a card on a spectator and get another spectator to read their mind and tell them what card it is (tell the spec ahead of time what card to say), this is great especially if there are children there and you can have the son read his dads mind

That's OK with kids.....but why don't you try
Best four bucks you'll spend this week. If you don't own a Kendle gadget you should get the free app for a computer from Amazon.
