Hi, just a quick one for those who picked up my new piece Rootsavant at Blackpool (and who didn't wave it away halfway through when they thought they knew what it was) - I supplied it with a PDF download instruction set because the print for the instructions was delayed: I now have those printed instructions so if you got the effect and really need thendead tree edition of the notes (although they are exactly the same), PM me and I'll get them posted out FoC.

I still don't know anything about what your new effects do. Am I missing something?

Just editing some dodgy phonecam demo videos, should be a bit clearer soon

Having seen all the new effects I can say they're all killer but for different reasons. I have been doing rootsavant a lot lately and it is super fun mental demonstration. That said crypto is possibly my favourite new toy. The man is a bloody genius.

I've really enjoyed performing this in work this week since picking it up from Phill in Blackpool...it's a beauty.

I think I have a chance of promotion after blowing away a few of the analysts and mathematicians where I work Smile

I have to add I think there are many many other features that could be added to the prop (if that's what you call it)...i think I mentioned a couple to Phill on Saturday but it really could become a very special utility item for mentalists.

After loving Crypto this is another winner ...well done phill again!

Any updates on this? I'd love too see a demo or a more precise description.

Hi yes I did eventually get the phonecam demo up on yt and although it looks pretty rubbish techwise the effect is at least covered:

https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=xnf1bHkHXMk

Remember, this effect requires basically no memorisation and no maths (beyond one extremely simple sum) - I've used this a lot, it's great (and available at http://miscellaneousmiracles.co.uk/product/rootsavant-a5/ and http://miscellaneousmiracles.co.uk/product/rootsavant-a6/ depending what size you want)

I need to update the site with refill prices, but other than that it's up to date - new orders now ship with the printed instructions.

I love this effect, and can now get everything done around the 18-20 second mark

However, there is nothing mentioned in the instructions about what happens if a number under 20 is chosen?
One of the test cube numbers in the instructions is 2,744 - what would happen in that situation?
Any one that could help me, perhaps you could PM me. Thanks.

Sub 20 seconds is pretty fast, good work getting it down!

Numbers below 20 - there are two main ways to deal with it: just have minus/negative numbers in the grid *or* preclude the choice. Either works fine, and I've done both a lot. I haven't seen punters question the negative numbers, it just adds to the complexity. It does however slow me down a little bit in the summing up phase so I now usually say "Pick a number between 1 and 100 but don't pick one that's too small because at the end maybe you'll think it was too easy, make it a reasonable size." It's organic and it makes sense within the routine.

Thanks Phill, I guessed this must have been the case. Thanks for clarifying. Smile

OK now I sort of know what you're on about.

Lol, glad you caught up Bev, watch the video for more information. I think a lot of people have passed on this because they write it off as 'just' a magic square, which is fair but misses the entire point of the effect.

But then I would say that wouldn't I?

I picked this up. At first I was mad as it looked difficult but then I read the docs. It's easy as pie and a real fooler.

Everything is laid out for you and a crib is right there in front of you at all times.

It truly will make you look like a numbers expert. It changes the dynamic of the math square.

When is crypto going to be back on the scene?

Hi, just a quick one since this is still floating around - the full instruction video is actually live on the instruction page that the pdf is on - it's a screen cast tutorial containing 45 minutes of hard hitting instructions / general waffle, as well as my guidelines for doing (and importantly this is NOT the core effect) the routine impromptu with any pad.

Ref: Crypto - good question, don't hold your breath.

Thanks

Hi John C it is definitely there - you might need to clear your cache or refresh the page or sacrifice another lamb to the dark gods that rule the hinterland of the internet, but it is there!
