This manuscript features six routines from Paul Voodini, all utilizing a marked deck. As well as fully explaining the routines, Paul also discusses many subtleties that allow the performer to use a marked deck with confidence. He also teaches ‘tricks of the trade’ so that spectators never suspect for a moment that there is anything ‘funny’ about the cards.
The routines included are:
The Keeper of Secrets – The performer is able to correctly divine a chosen card despite the spectator desperately trying to keep its identity a secret.
Thought Transfer – Performer and spectator work together as a team to demonstrate ESP or thought telepathy.
Dead Man’s Eyes – It is said that a dead man’s eyes record the last image they see. Could this theory be true?
Love Thy Neighbor – The mind reader is correctly able to predict a playing card despite the fact that neither the mind reader nor the spectator have seen it or can have any knowledge of its identity!
Secret of the Mayans – A Mayan artefact, tied in with the 2012 doomsday prediction, allows a spectator to successfully select a pre-ordained playing card. It’s a mystical miracle!
Forethought – The performer correctly predicts a cut-to playing card before the cut is made!
