- Questions and Answers
1. The Revelation Effect
The Revelation Effect starts with 3 performances.
The Mind Reader approaches a group of 6 girls. He asks one of them to think of someone then write the persons name down on a piece of paper without showing anyone else. Then he gets the group to focus on what the name is and speculate on the sex. Next he asks the girl to imagine the person walking towards her. From there he guesses it is a friend, then best friend, then the name. Needless to say the girls can scarcely believe it!
For performance 2 The Mind Reader approaches a male and female sat on a wall near what looks like a beach. This time he asks the girl to think of something, then he hands her a piece of paper to write it down. He takes the paper back and they all agree there is no way he can see through it (it’s thick paper) and the paper is handed back to the girl. The Mind Reader then begins to narrow down what the thing might be. A person is ruled out, and the girl reveals it is something funny. As in performance 1 he gets the girl to imagine the thing coming towards her, as she does so he guesses its an animal then the animal – a bunny!
The two ladies in performance 3 seem most convinced The Mind Reader has psychic abilities. They look like friends taking a stroll by the beach and are around 40-50. First he gets them both to think of someone then gets one to write it down. Again he asks the lady to imagine the person coming towards her and he guesses its her husband but she’s not giving much away so he gets her to repeat the name over in her head. When he gets it they are both amazed and ask if he’s a clairvoyant.
After the performances The Mind Reader explains his method in 5 steps. He also shows you how you can perform the effect with a drawing on the paper or with an object in the room. An explanation is given of how best to perform the effect one-on-one and he gives advice on practice and performance.
2. Think Of A Card
There are 3 performances of Think Of A Card. Performance 1 is one-on-one with a girl, 2 is to two girls and 3 to a larger group of teenage boys. The effect is as follows: He gets someone to shuffle the cards then gets them to select a card as he riffles through them. The Mind Reader then guesses the card. For the larger group he does the effect on two of the boys at the same time.
In the explanation The Mind Reader tells us this is his favourite mentalism effect using cards, always works and always gets a great reaction. The method and performance are explained, an alternative performance is explained as well as how to perform the trick to a large audience.

The Revelation Effect videos have high production values and are packed with valuable content. The great thing about The Revelation Effect is the techniques are not over complicated and therefore suitable for beginners. The methods are broken down step by step and are explained clearly. With a little practice a beginner will be able to perform the tricks to complete strangers within a week.
With the Psychological Opener and Think Of A Card you have a mini routine to take to parties or perform to strangers in the street. These are all simple but very powerful effects that are sure to get great reactions once you’ve tried them out a few times. I think beginners will get a lot out of the videos and there is a free trial and 60 day money back guarantee if you are not happy. I would recommend The Revelation Effect to anyone who wants to learn mentalism and mind reading.
