Ok so you donít switch the Sharpie or load the Sharpie itís the spectators hand from start to finish Ben ? Thatís not true from what I have seen Gaz 😊

No, I never said that? I mentioned I'm WORKING on a handling where the sharpie STARTS in their hands and yes of course you have to briefly take it back and then you give it back to them nearly straight away so in their mind it's just always been in play (and it's even stronger when you ask them to name their card after you take it out of the sharpie).

But yes in any case there is ALWAYS a load, of course! I don't believe I ever stated the opposite but sorry if I wasn't being clear! And I feel the load is nearly invisible.

Can you please quote the exact words I said (or what you're referring to)?
Gaz politely asked a question, and again I'm sorry if I wasn't clear, but he respectfully gave me the opportunity to explain. Happy to explain further on what you have understood but please quote what I said as I'm not sure what you're referring to...

Sorry if this is off topic but itís very much related to this effect.
Regarding using an E process and a 12 card out (the 12 picture cards.)

Once youíve established you are using the picture cards you have 2 options. The first is you can choose to immediately eliminate all but one of the picture cards and arrive directly at the selected card.
OR...you can add more eliminations such as having them first eliminate the values, then colors, then suits, etc.

My question is to those much more experienced at this than I am...what is the better option of the two?
Does it depend on whether they choose number cards or picture cards initially?
Or perhaps it doesnít really matter all that much regardless of how they arrived at picture cards?
Or is ALWAYS important to include more eliminations to further establish a pattern?

Personally I would continue more eliminations to follow the pattern of the first one.

Totally agree otherwise it would seem odd you didnít just say either name any card or we will eliminate 51 cards except for 1 .
Itís the consisting after the first stage that is constant throughout that seems to make it fairer ( when of course itís not really ) than it is . Particularly when you can give them the options of changing their minds at each stage and reaffirming all this at the reveal . Thatís my opinion for what itís worth Gaz 😊

Did you forget to type Ďso farí or have you completely lost all notion of what month of the year we are actually in. Just in case you have, weíre still in February.

Ha I sometimes wonder which year we're in... as far as I'm concerned it's probably not going to be the trick of the year for me but I still think it's a really good one.

As Murphy's and EKat Call this the "Trick of the year"

Then we won't need to spend much money on anything else this year

Not sure what Murphy said, but, just to be more precise, I don't think Ekat exactly called it the trick of the year on her review (as lots of people have said)... she said that she "thinks it will be hard to beat" and that she's "making the prediction that it won't be beaten", it's a bit different...

She said "it is the trick of the year for me."

Which I think is saying it is the trick of the year in no uncertain terms.

This keeps coming up, and part of the misunderstanding I think is that she talks about this in two different places.

0:38 - "It's early into 2021 but it's the trick of the year for me."

4:43 - "I love this and I don't know how to express this further than just to say for me, I don't think there's gonna be a trick that packs such powerful magic and variations into ... so many things you can do with it, like, it's gonna be hard to beat in 2021. So I'm gonna make a prediction that probably, can't beat it, for me and that's my personal opinion."

I think a lot of people (including me a few pages back) remember the second reference but miss the first one.

Honestly I think the way they quoted Ekat was one of the many ways in which the ad copy was misleading.

Oh all right then, I did miss the first one which is indeed a bit bold... the second reference is more acceptable to me though

I can't see what is misleading about:

0:38 - "It's early into 2021 but it's the trick of the year for me."

Could you elaborate?

Yes, the trailer was misleading, no doubt. But the quote? She literally said "it's the trick of the year for me"

So, how is that misleading?

Her opinions are not misleading at all , she can think that then , that now and for the rest of the year . It depends how seriously you take one persons opinion itís down to yourself to weigh things up and make an informed decision overall imho Gaz 😊
