AOK is one of my favorite mentalism releases of all time, and highly rated by many others.

Lewis has mentioned AOK2 is in development. Worthy of its own thread!

Looking forward to more details from Lewis as soon as they are available!

Hi Stunninger, thanks again for starting this thread Smile I am currently in the process of planning my tutorial, I have a tendency to go off on random tangents, especially in my most recent releases. I'm determined to keep the tutorial for AOK2 as crystal clear as possible, and so that I do not forget to mention anything. I hope to film the tutorial pretty soon, and now that the cat is out of the bag it will definitely help to speed the process up a bit haha Smile I will hang around on this thread incase anyone has any questions!

Best wishes,

Lewis x

Nice!

AOK is definitely a beautifully parsimonious piece of mentalism.

What is different in version 2?

In this thread (https://www.themagiccafe.com/forums/viewtopic.php?topic=701161&forum=218&start=20), Lewis explained: "AOK2 has an updated handling for those who would rather avoid that specific 'move' in the original idea, and I have updated the presentations, psychology and motivation behind the routine" He has a few more details there as well...

Don't omit the rants and tangents Lewis!
Looking forward to this Smile

Hey everyone, sorry for the delay on getting back on here!

GOOD NEWS! We just shot the download for AOK2 over the last few days Smile

This download will be massive, clocking in at around 2 hours long!

252life, inspired by your post about not omitting the rants and tangents, there is a section on presentation and dealing with difficult spectators that turned into a 40 minute tangent that I am actually extremely happy with, and will definitely be including in the download!

In the tutorial I talk about the original method, and have included 3 new handlings for the routine. As well as the mechanical aspect of the method, there is a handful of presentational ideas which also buy you more time, allowing you to p**k more information on the cards, written or drawn by your spectator. There is also an overwhelming amount of subtleties, tips, script lines and other ideas which can be used not only in this routine, but many other routines in your repertoire too. There is also an entire section on turning the routine into a close up Q&A act, with all of my best advice on answering even the most challenging questions from your spectators.

I have also included a PDF with an extremely simple but effective graphology system that you can use to not only ensure that your spectators write clearly on the cards, but also keep them engaged from start to finish, providing each participant with a brief reading about their personality, based on their handwriting.

What was once a simple drawing duplication/reveal, AOK is now an entire close up/parlour mind reading system. Reactions range from loud, television style screams to deeply moving and emotional, depending on your preferred performance style (I'm sure you can guess which I personally prefer!)

Now that the download has been filmed, I can answer more questions regarding AOK2 so I will stick around on this thread!

As soon as I know the approximate release date I will post it here!

Much love,

Lewis.

I also support the inclusion of rants and tangents, as suggested by the rant-and-tangent of the Magic Café aka 252life.

If loving 252life's rants and tangents is wrong, I don't want to be right.

Yes. It’s a tempting line though isn’t it?

I'm personally done with lines. No temptation whatsoever.

Is that "genuine" enough for y'all? Smile

On topic: I'm interested in this project. I enjoyed AOK and got the toolbox as well. AOK is my favorite of the things Val has put out.
I'm frequently hit with enlightening in the middle of a brain storm.
