Hello,

I have a growing interest in card tricks that don’t use physical cards ( I..e a deck or a packet). They can either use nothing, non-playing card props, or - perhaps - single cards as a revelation, such as a participant naming a card that is produced from a wallet using an index.

What comes to my mind:
- Stephen Tucker’s Deckless Wonder - Published in Mark Elsdon’s Conversation as Mentalism vol.3
- Ran Pink’s The White Room - separate ebook download
- Psychological forces of course, Docc Hillford’s or Derren Brown’s.
- Cog by Ben Seward - different process to restrict choices and fishing.
- Of course having an index of some kind allowing a revelation after them naming/choosing a card without a deck. What comes to mind are Heirloom with its variations, Kolossal Killer or an index such as the Shadow wallet.
- Simple revelation by a Swami writer on a billet.
- Using the phone as a method or location of revelation. What comes to my mind from my limited exposure to far are Inject 2 and the Stranger apps.

Any additional effects would be appreciated. I’m sure older tricks exist too but nothing comes to mind.

Thanks Smile

- Feras

Bob Cassidy's "Chronologue" is a classic example.
"Calculated Thoughts" is available at The Deceptionary :: Elegant, Literate, Contemporary Mentalism ... and More

Thank you for the mention of my "7" (or "SE7EN"...or "SEVEN"...or...I've spelled it "SEVERAL" ways over the years...)

It's a pleasure to be included in such a great list of resources for this genre!
