“This is precisely the type of material that every working mentalist is searching for. It is powerful, flexible and proven. It would be difficult to think of a demonstration that packed flatter or played bigger. Using Jack’s Assumption Swindle, you will be able to convince every member of your audience that you can read their mind AND win the lottery!” — Michael Weber
Jack Kent Tillar, the creator of the classic Blister effect, now presents an incredible new concept that every working mentalist will find uses for in their repertoire. The Assumption Swindle is one of the most ingenious and versatile principles in mentalism. It requires no stooges, no peeks, no electronics, and no gimmicks. It enables the performer to create unforgettable miracles.
Here are just a few examples:
- Six participants freely choose a lottery number and each writes it down on a slip of paper. A seventh participant holds the slips and serves as a judge. The performer proceeds to reveal each number that was written down and the judge verifies that each number called out is among the slips!
- The audience secretly writes down three unusual actions for the performer to do on stage. Using muscle reading while blindfolded, the performer is able to accomplish these tests!
- The performer is able to reveal the total of all the serial numbers of several bills held by audience members!
Part 1 of this book explains this effect and explores a variety of other effects using this principle as it can be applied to playing cards, serial numbers on bills, coupons, drawings, words, places, trading cards, and many, many other items that are limited only by one’s imagination. Part 2 explores ways to accomplish an essential technique in mentalism. Part 3 will inspire and teach you to create mental and magical originalities that will fit your audience, your abilities and your own particular personality!
“I’m really enjoying your material and am savoring every word! The material is great.” — Michael Weber Pages
