- Product Type: VIDEO STREAMING
Professional mentalists Larry Becker, Christopher Caldwell, Lee Earle, Docc Hilford, Kenton Knepper, Mark Strivings, and Gene Urban used to be known as the "Arizona 6 ½" who met regularly to discuss, experiment and create mentalism and mental magic routines. All seven have published and contributed greatly to the art of mentalism and mental magic.
This is volume one of a three part series where all seven men have agreed to get together to perform and explain some of their best and most interesting creations. Each person performs their routine in front of a live audience and then explains it to the group in a session format where they kid around, ask questions and expand on the routines.
Routines performed and explained:
►Psychometric Coins (Larry Becker): Out of your view a spectator signs one of five coins and puts them in five different envelopes. The envelopes are mixed up so nobody knows which envelope contains the signed coin. Using your psychic ability you divine which envelope contains the signed coin with 100% accuracy.
►Blockbuster Video Prediction (Christopher Caldwell): Two massive movie and video guides that list the best and worst films and videos are shown. A spectator selects one of the books, picks a page and thinks of one of the highest rated movies on his page. You then show your prediction, that was in full view, which names the movie and its rating.
►Intuition Times Two (Gene Urban): A spectator names a card and tells the mentalist to stop cutting the deck anytime he likes. The card stopped at is the selected card. A second spectator names a different card and inserts the first selection into the deck to find out that it is now her card. Which later changes back into the first selection.
►The Shadow Cloud (Docc Hilford): One spectator freely selects a card and a second spectator looks at that card. Amazingly the card the second spectator thought they saw is missing from the deck and appears in a prediction envelope.
►Con-Bination (Lee Earle): A spectator is in possession of a combination lock that he only knows how to open. You divine the correct combination, one number at a time and let a second spectator open the lock.
►The Southwest Miracle (Kenton Knepper): A spectator selects a card and puts it back in the box reversed. The entire deck vanishes from the box and appears in your pocket with the selection reversed.
►37 Revisited (Mark Strivings): A spectator thinks of a number and you show that you predicted it in advance.
