Professional mentalists Larry Becker, Christopher Caldwell, Lee Earle, Docc Hilford, Kenton Knepper, Mark Strivings, and Gene Urban used to be known as the "Arizona 6½" 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 two 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:
►A Case Of Simple Logic (Larry Becker): A spectator cuts the deck, takes the top card, shows it around and inserts it back into the center of the deck face up. The cards are then put back in the card case and you are able to name the selected card.
►Ani-Mental: (Christopher Caldwell): Two spectators are shown photographs of animals. They each freely select one of the animals and you divine their thoughts and tell them which animal they are thinking of.
►Body Talk: (Gene Urban): A spectator inserts a business card into a book to randomly select a page and thinks of a word on that page. You then supposedly divine the word they are thinking of using their body language.
►The Seventh Sign (Docc Hilford): A spectator draws something on a business card and you duplicate that drawing on your own business card.
►Five-Bill Miracle (Kenton Knepper): Five borrowed one-dollar bills are handed to a spectator to mix. They initial the face of one of them and mix them up face down and spread them all over the table. They then help you in discovering which bill was their selected one.
►Confabulous Vacation (Mark Strivings): The audience helps in constructing an imaginary vacation by selecting the date, the people involved, what they will be doing, the length of the vacation, and the destination. You then show a postcard you received from your friends which predicted the entire trip.
►Manila Miracle (Lee Earle): Five envelopes are shown and four of them are freely selected by different spectators. Every spectator wins a lottery ticket but the envelope they left you with is the only one that also contains a fifty dollar bill.
