Ok, My first review here. Thought I'd give this trick a try whilst buying some other magic supply's.

Here is the effect,

Two spectators select cards and hide them in there pocket, a third spectator is selected and ask to take the role of the Great Mind reader. This spectator is able to read the minds of the other two spectators and correctly reveals the cards selected by the two spectators.

The effect can be also be performed with selected numbers or geometric shapes.

What you get is a nicely made gimmick and a detailed booklet with the effects. The effects are simply to grasp and require basic slights to perform, however a performing confidence and experience is required which my make this effect unsuitable for beginners.

To be honest I have my reservations about this effect, not to put it down but I have had no luck yet whilst trying it on friends and family( as I do all my new tricks) I feel I may have more luck on lay audience but I am unsure if to try. I would be interested to see if anyone performs this and could put my mind at rest. I have my used my own 'out' when it failed on my friends.

All in all, its a good trick, I am happy I got it as the principle has many uses as does the gimmick.

This would fit happily in to a mentalist set, especially were failure is not so much a big concern.

Overall I give it 7 out of 10.

Thanks for reading
