My Confabulation routine will be available in ebook format at Lybrary in the next day or two. Price is $10. I'm happy to answer any questions (short of revealing the method or presentation, of course). Feel free to post here or PM or email me.Below is the official ad copy. Of course, it does not give details on all the bits of business that make this a truly entertaining professional routine. But it'll give you the gist.

CELEBRITY POKER is Scott's exciting take on Alan Shaxon's "Confabulation" effect. This is a mentalism routine for parlor, platform and stage with LOTS of audience participation, comedy, and an extremely engaging presentation. The routine is very funny, super strong, super easy to do, and with one exception, the required props cost next to nothing at your local dollar store or Walmart. The good news: That one exception is readily available from magic dealers and it isn't very expensive--and you don't HAVE to own it to do the routine! Scott gives complete instructions on how to do the routine without it.

Effect: Everyone in the audience visualizes a famous actor from TV or the movies. THE AUDIENCE chooses someone to reveal her mentally chosen actor. Then everyone in the audience pictures that actor and a few of his friends, sitting around his table eating a specific food. Again, at the whim of the audience, a person is chosen to reveal the food he pictured. The audience then selects another person, who in turn chooses two other people. Everyone visualizes the chosen actor and his friends eating the chosen food while enjoying a poker night. These two people work together to choose which card will be the celebrity’s in a “winner-take-all” hand of high card. In the fairest possible way, you reveal that you have correctly predicted the card, the food, and the actor, in spite of the fact that there has apparently been a problem and the situation seems to have gotten out of hand!

KEY POINTS
*There is virtually no sleight-of-hand involved.
*The routine is very easy to learn and perform, but comes across as a miracle.
*The presentation literally involves the entire audience, both mentally and physically.
*No stooges, electronics, pre-show work, impression devices, double-writing, etc.
*Scott's full professional script is included.

"I like this routine a lot. It reminds me of T.A. Waters work. Well done!" - Darrin Cook

Scott very kindly gave me a review copy of this routine and, after having read it through, thought I'd offer my two pence worth.

Scott has created a really strong - and funny - routine here. It's method is simple and direct (one of the few routines that doesn't need special props too!). I especially like the way that the revelations build along the way, totally obviating the need to include a weak revelation at the end if you were using a one ahead technique for instance. I also like the fact that the number of revelations is flexible and that Scott is giving you a system that, with a bit of thought and creativity, can work with ANY story. You can use his presentation if you like, or, if you have a kids show coming up, you can make up something for them. If you do any trade show or corporate work, you'll see the immediate benefit of being able to adapt the presentation.

For ten bucks, you're getting a routine and presentation that you can use for any market. It's a strong piece of mentalism that will serve you well. As usual with Scott, the ebook is very clearly laid out and explained with photos where needed.

Thanks Scott!

Could this be used to create a Dream Vacation or Dream Date like routine?

Hi Mike,

I suppose you could use it for that if you wanted to. Basically, it is a multiple prediction effect. So any three (or more) predictions could be used, within reason. Obviously, it's not REAL precognition, so you're limited by the methodology--as you are to varying degrees for any Confabulation routine. In the interests of transparency, it was not specifically designed for a "Dream Vacation" or "Dream Date" presentation, so it would require some more effort on your part to apply it to such. If that's your primary interest, you may find other routines specifically created for that effect/presentation more suitable for you.

Here are a few more reviews, which may help you to decide if this is your cup of tea.

"Scott, thanks for this. I can see how this would be a fun and entertaining addition to anyone's act." - John Luka

"Got it. As usual, you've constructed a very commercial routine. Lots of room for comic byplay and interaction. Congratulations!" - Greg Arce

"Scott, congratulations on another highly commercial, practical, and exciting release! I love the way you've streamlined everything so that the performer can simply focus on their presentation. I feel your releases are the natural successor to the Ron Bauer Private Study Series. If someone likes those, they will LOVE your releases. You've tipped some of your best work, including some very funny patter. I highly recommend Celebrity Poker!" - Jeff Kowalk
