In this 36-page booklet “Conversation As Mentalism Volume 2” by magician extraordinaire Mark Elsdon, there are nine (9) mentalism effects.
The nine tricks are:
Picture this. You seem to have a psychokinetic ability to move the needle on a borrowed cell phone compass (from the App Store) with the power of your mind.
It looks like you can even transfer your amazing feat to the participant.
The movement might be be small and subtle but it does work.
A prediction is made. Three objects are placed on the table.
The participant picks one, another one is taken by you and the last is left in the middle.
When the prediction is revealed, it states who has which object.
3. Bet On L.A:
A word puzzle is introduced and a participant correctly guesses the answer.
4. Animal Magnetism:
Call up a strong young man from the audience. You magically take away his strength.
Then get him to perform several simple tasks and surprisingly he is unable to do so because of his lack of strength.
5. Wanted: Ad:
This is really a fun effect that you can perform with most magazines or newspapers.
A page is ripped up and the spectator removes a random piece selecting a word or image.
You reads the participant’s mind and reveals the exact word!
A spectator selects a finger and you are able to predict which he/she would choose.
7. (Back) To The Future:
In this effect, it seems you can make a participant travel forward in time with them, his watch changes and even his/her drink is no longer hot.
8. Bookless Book Test Know-How:
You have the astonishing ability to perform a book-test trick without a book.
9. The Red Envelope:
Get a participant to freely selects an imaginary envelope out of three choices (red, blue and green color).
Then he or she decides whether to open the selected envelope with an imaginary letter opener, penknife or a pair of invisible scissors.
Then you predict the outcome.
Basically most of the the tricks in this book merely required words and language.
Equivoque Magic Books
Two of the effects used the technique called equivoque magic.
It is used by a magician to make the audience believe they have freedom of choice, when really the end result is already set in place by the magician.
Here are some examples of equivoque magic.
