Mr Grumpy, I have devised UK friendly versions of all 4 cards with flowcharts if you are interested?

The supplement to this effect is now out, and included with each purchase.
It contains some excellent ideas, thoughts and subtleties some of which can be used outside the realms of TAC.
It may be worth adding that some of our own TM members have made contributions.

This is walkaround mentalism at its best.

My ideas on printing TAC on the back of your business cards--which isn't straightforward as you won't want the participants backtracking--will be included in the next update.

The supplement to this is now out, to which Matt and I made significant contributions.
Well worth a look IMHO, it's wonderful walkabout mentalism.

I've really enjoyed using this - and the method has certainly sparked my thinking about ways in which it could be developed.

However, I think the UK version has an inherent weakness that isn't present in the other versions, and, although no participant has made much of it a number have commented on one aspect of the card (without giving too much away: the only aspect that is unique to the UK version).

I've made three tweaks, which have helped me avoid this issue: one in the printing of the cards, one in the presentation of the cards, and one in the content of the cards. I was wondering if anyone else had encountered similar issues, and how they countered them (and I'd be happy to share my tweaks by PM, if anyone's interested).

Hi Nathaniel
I worked out a UK version for each card, and these are in the supplement.
I use it fairly regularly, and so would be very interested in your tweaks, thank you.

Hello Malcolm,

Wasn't sure how to use the PM facility here, so I dropped you a line at the email address on your website. Hope that's okay...

Yours,

Nathaniel

The PM facility doesn't open up until 5 or more posts but you should be able to access and use it now.

Is the supplement purchased separately?
