2 Memory Card Tricks

memory card trick

Here are 2 amazing memory tricks you can perform on stage, at parties or for friends. All you need is a deck of cards. The technique can also be used to win card games.

The method is based on the Peg System. If you are not familiar please take some time to learn it then come back to this post.

Card Pegs

Each playing card has a peg which is a word which represents the card. For cards Ace to 10 the peg is a word which begins with the card suit and ends with a consonant sound which represents a number in the phonetic alphabet. eg. 2 of Clubs begins with the letter C for clubs and ends with the N sound which represents 2. You could use cone, coin, can, etc, we’ve used can. For Jacks, the suit is used eg. club, heart etc. For Kings and Queens the peg word is a word which begins with the suit letter and rhymes with the card itself eg. Queen of Diamonds – dream. See the table below for a complete list of pegs.

KC - kingKH - hingeKS - singKD - drink

Memorize Pegs

For each peg choose a clear and distinctive image in your mind. Make sure none of the images are the same as any image you have for numbers 1-52 as there are 52 cards in the deck as you need to peg them to the card images and don’t want any confusion. Now take some time to learn them.

Trick 1: Memorize a deck of cards in order

Get someone to read the cards out or show them to you. To memorize them in order peg the card image to the number image. Try and make the resulting image as unusual or strange as possible so it sticks in your mind. eg. if the first card is the 5 of Spades you should peg 5 of Spades (Sail) to the number 1 (Tie). For instance imagine a boat that instead of a sail has a giant tie!

If the second card is the 8 of Diamonds peg the image for 8 of Diamonds (dive) to the image for the number 2 (Noah). You could imagine Noah diving into a swimming pool.

To do this have the number peg word in your mind before the card is called. As soon as the card is called make the association in your mind. When you have memorized the deck you can recall them in order of have someone call a number and you can tell them the card in that position.

Trick 2: Identify missing cards

Another trick is to have someone remove a card or cards from the deck and you can identify the missing card/s. To do this when the card is read out picture the image in your mind then spoil it. For example if the 4 of Hearts is called picture a hare with no ears. If its the King of Diamonds imagine a spilled drink. Just picture the image for a second and that should be enough.

Once all the cards have been called out run through the whole deck in your mind and the images which are not spoilt are the missing numbers. Go through the suits in the same order each time and with practice you will be able to do it quickly.

Good luck learning these amazing tricks and if you win big in Vegas card counting don’t forget where you got the idea 😉

Mentalist Memory Techniques: Peg System – Excercises

Pegs for Peg System

To begin using the peg system you will need to learn some memory pegs and start practicing it. It’s not rocket science but you have to take some time to learn it. Here are a few exercises to get you going.

Phonetic alphabet for numbers 0-9

0 – Z or S – first sound of the word zero
1 – D or T – letters have 1 downstroke
2 – N – 2 downstrokes
3 – M – 3 downstrokes
4 – R – final sound of word ‘four’
5 – L – Roman numeral for 50 is L
6 – g, ch, sh, soft g. g is 6 rotated 180°
7 – K, hard-ch, hard-c, hard-g. K looks like 2 7s
8 – F, V – f written out in joined up handwriting looks like an 8
9 – P, b – P turned around looks like a 9

Exercise 1

Write down the following words as numbers: climb, butler, chandelier, sounds, bracelet, hypnotize

Excercise 2

Write these numbers as their corresponding letters: 6124, 8903, 2394, 0567, 1109, 8374

Pegs for numbers 1-10

1. Tie
2. Noah
3. Ma
4. Rye
5. Law
6. Shoe
7. Cow
8. Ivy
9. Bees
10. Toes

Exercise 3

Peg the numbers to the following objects using the technique below.

9 — purse
6 — cigarette
4 — ashtray
7 — salt-shaker
3 — lamp
5 — typewriter
2 — TV set
8 — wrist watch
1 — fountain pen
10 — telephone

Here’s the technique:

  • 9 (bee) — purse. Make a ridiculous and/or illogical association of the peg word for 9, which is “bee,” and purse. You might see yourself opening a purse and a swarm of bees fly out of it, stinging you. Just “see” the picture for a moment, then go to the next one.
  • 6 (shoe) — cigarette. You can see yourself smoking a shoe instead of a cigarette, see millions of cigarettes falling out of a shoe, or you can see yourself wearing gigantic cigarettes instead of shoes.
  • 4 (rye) — ashtray. You might see yourself dropping ashes into a scooped out loaf of rye bread instead of an ashtray, or, you’re buttering an ashtray instead of a slice of rye bread. The first illogical picture that comes to mind is usually the best, because that is the one that will come to mind later on.
  • 7 (cow) – salt-shaker. Picture yourself milking a cow, but the cow has salt-shakers instead of udders. Or, see saltshakers coming out instead of milk.
  • 3 (ma) – lamp.  Picture your mother wearing a gigantic lamp for a hat. See the lamp going on and off.
  • 5 (law) – typewriter. You might “see” a policeman putting handcuffs on a typewriter, or you can see a typewriter walking the beat, swinging a club, like a cop.
  • 2 (Noah) – television set. Picture Noah sailing on a television set instead of an ark.
  • 8 (ivy) – wrist watch. You can see millions of wrist watches growing all over the side of your house, instead of ivy; or, you can see yourself wearing ivy on your wrist instead of a watch.
  • 1 (tie) – fountain pen. Picture yourself wearing a gigantic fountain pen instead of a tie, or see yourself writing with your tie, instead of a fountain pen.
  • 10 (toes) – telephone. See yourself dialing with your toes, or, you pick up the telephone, but it turns out that you’re holding your toes. (Probably talking to a heel.)

Now without looking write down the numbers with the associated objects: purse, cigarette, ashtray, salt-shaker, lamp, typewriter, TV set, wrist watch, fountain pen, telephone.

Exercise 4

Remember a list of errands: wash the car, going to the bank, send an important email, see the dentist, pick up the umbrella that you forgot at a friend’s house, buy some perfume, call the television repairman, stop at the hardware store, go to the bookstore and have your watch repaired.

car to (#1)
bank to Noah (#2)
email to ma (#3)
dentist to rye (#4)
umbrella to law (#5)
perfume to shoe (#6)
television to cow (#7)
hardware to ivy (#8)
book to bee (#9)
watch to toes (#10)

Credit:How to Develop A SUPER-POWER MEMORY by Harry Lorayne

It’s Like Having A Superpower

elephant

Here is a technique to explode the power of your memory. You will not believe how simple it is. Learn and apply it you won’t believe the results. Use this technique to memorise routines, anecdotes, jokes and to perform amazing feats of memory.

So what’s the technique? It involves using Key Words. A Key Word is a single word or phrase which sums up a thought. Look at the method for remembering a speech below and all will become clear.

The Key Word technique is used with the Link System and the Peg System. If you are not familiar with those techniques read up on them here > Link System : Peg System

Great, you’re now familiar with the Link and Peg System, let’s dive in!

How to Remember a Speech

  • Write out the speech in full.
  • Run through the speech a few times to get the gist of it.
  • Get a piece of paper and write down Key Words for each thought in the speech. A Key Word can be a single word or a short phrase. There should be a word or phrase in each sentence or paragraph which brings to mind the whole thought. That is the Key Word you need to write down.
  • Write down the full list of Key Words, one for each thought.
  • If you want to and its possible use the list of Key Words when giving the speech.
  • If you need to recall the speech from memory you need to memorise the Key Words using the link system. Using the link system you visually link together the Key Words, the first with the second, the second with the third etc.

At first you may need a number of words for each thought. Use as many as you need, once you gain confidence with the technique you will only need one keyword for each thought. Focus on the thoughts and the words will take care of themselves.

If you need to remember the speech word for word use the same technique. However you will need to go over the speech and Key Words more times.

Remember Scripts, Jokes, Stories and Anecdotes

The same system of linking Key Words can be used for remembering scripts. In this case
it is usually necessary to memorize them word for word. You will have to go over them more often, but the Key Word idea will make it much easier for you.

You can also apply the technique for jokes, stories and anecdotes. Just take one word from the story, a word from the punch line is usually best, that will bring the entire joke to mind. When you get your Key Words, you can either link them to each other to remember all the stories in sequence, or use the Peg System to remember them by number.

Amazing Feat Of Memory

You can also use the Key Word technique to perform feats of memory for an audience. A great trick to perform is memorising a magazine. To do this you will need to combine the Key Word technique with the Peg System.

  • Memorise what’s on each page go through the magasine before the show. To do this get a Key Word from each page then associate it to the peg for the page number.
  • Give out copies of a magazine to the audience and ask them to call out page numbers. You can tell them what’s on each page, for instance if its an article about a footballers wife you would say that, if its an advert for bingo you would say that.

True Memory

These techniques are systems for assisting true memory. As you use the systems you’ll find your true memory getting stronger. The best example of this is in memorising a magazine. To make the associations in the first place, you must really see and observe the picture on the page. Because of this, when any page number is called, the peg word for that number acts as an aid so you can almost reproduce the entire page in your mind’s eye. You will know on what part of the page the picture is located. Prove this to yourself – give it a try!

I hope you found this article useful. If you haven’t already don’t forget to subscribe to the free mentalism course. Best wishes.

Contact Mind Reading Trick

Contact Mind Reading

A person’s thoughts are often given away through their body language. In this trick we are going to use muscle reading to get a person to lead us to a hidden object.

In Derren Brown Trick of The Mind 1 [DVD] [2004] Derren uses this skill to find an object hidden in the labyrinthine streets of Venice. Derren has a highly developed ability to read body language, however, it is likely he started learning by practising simple muscle reading techniques like this one.

Here is the trick as shown on hit TV show The Mentalist > a0gn6E1tCNs

The Trick

This trick is ideally performed for 1 of more people in a room at a gathering of friends or a party. You need a subject who will hide an object eg. a coin in the room and you will then use contact mind reading to determine where the object is. The subject should be responsive and willing to follow your instructions for this to work correctly :)

Step 1: Tell the subject to hide the object somewhere in the room while you step out for a minute. The object must be hidden somewhere within reach and must not be on the person.

Step 2: Leave the room while the object is hidden. Don’t peek! You might want to take someone to watch you if there are more than 2 of you present so everyone knows you haven’t looked.

Step 3: When you go back in the room take one of the subject’s hands in your hand. Tell them to relax their arm and support the weight.

Step 4: Now you must convince the person to follow your instructions. Tell them the success of the mind reading trick depends on the strength of their will power to make you go to the object. Tell them not to lead you but to repeat over and over in their mind where the object is.

Step 5: Lead the person to the middle of the room and at this point tell them to now begin repeating in their minds which direction the object is in.

Step 6: Move their hand in one direction and feel for resistance. If you feel resistance, try the other way, if not continue in the same direction. The object in in the direction where least resistance is felt.

Step 7: Once you think you know which general direction the object is in begin to pull the subject towards it, still being aware of resistance.

Step 8: When you get in the general location of the object ask the person to repeat in their mind the direction. Is it up or down? A little more to the left or right? You might feel the arm move. Move the hand, again feeling for resistance.

Step 9: You should now know where the object is. You can either reveal it or lead them to another place in the room before revealing it.

Notes

Of course you are not going to be able to perform this trick right off the bat. You need to practice with a friend before you perform for a larger group. The more practice you get with different people the better you will get.

Here are a few things to bare in mind to make the contact mind reading trick a success:

  • The subject needs to follow your instructions. The effect will not work if the subject thinks of somewhere else in the room to trip you up .
  • When practising with a friend its fine to let them know you are muscle reading. However, when performing give the impression you are mind reading and don’t let the audience know you are muscle reading instead.
  • The trick works on a principle called the ideomotor response. This is largely an unconscious response which means the person will not be aware they are leading you in any particular direction.
  • Some subjects are more suggestible than others, with some subjects you may feel their arm actually pulling you towards the object.

Mentalism Effect: Memory Test

Mentalism Memory Test

Mnemonics or memory systems are a key component of mentalism. Here we take a look at a simple memory test which will amaze your audience!

The effect is to have members of the audience call out 15-20 things and for you to recall them in any order. While some people are familiar with memory systems the effect is still impressive and is used by many mentalists. Give it a try with friends, it is relatively easy to learn and you may be pleasantly surprised :)

There are several memory systems you can use to accomplish this mentalism effect. In this article we look at 1 tried and tested method which should serve you well.

Step 1

  • Memorise a key for numbers 1-20
  • The key for each number is an object which you associate in your mind with a number
  • The object should have some relevance to the number. One way of doing this is through rhyming

Example Memory Key

1 – Sun, 2 – Shoe, 3 – Sea, 4 – Saw, 5 – Hive, 6 – Sticks, 7 – Heaven, 8 – Gate, 9 – Mine, 10 – Pen, 11 – Devon, 12 – Shelf, 13 – Skirting, 14 – Flooring, 15 – Lifting, 16 – Pixie, 17 – Tin of Beans, 18 – Painting, 19 – Lightning, 20 – Horn of Plenty (Ice Cream)

Step 2

Each object on the list should be made into a vivid image in the mind’s eye. The object should also be performing an action, which should be consistent each time you visualise the object.

For instance: (1.) The sun could have a face which is smiling brightly or could be emitting heat rays, (2.) Something could be being placed into the shoe, (3.) The sea could be lapping at the shore.

Performance

1. Get a member of the audience to write a list of numbers 1-20 on a sheet of paper or blackboard. This person is to record objects as they are called out. The sheet is faced towards the audience so they can see it but you can’t.

2. Ask someone in the audience to call out an object for No. 1.

3. As soon as you hear what the object is, immediately associate it with the relevant object from the key. The object should interact with the object from the key and the image should be unusual. For example if a mobile phone is suggested the image could be the sun laughing at an old 1980s style mobile phone.

4. As soon as you have created a vivid image immediately forget it and move on to the next number and do the same again until you have done all 20.

5. Once all 20 items have been called out invite members of the audience to call out numbers between 1 and 20 at random and recall them using your key.

Notes:

  • Invite the audience to give detailed objects, this can add humour
  • The quicker you can memorise and recall the objects the more impressive the effect is
  • Though we have chosen 20 objects for the sake of a performance the number can be much higher, you just need to extend the key

 

Magic And Mentalism Festival King’s Arms Salford

Eggs Sausage Peas (ESP)

I arrived at the King’s Arms to be welcomed by a silver faced man organising the Ghost tour!

It was a 1 hr show based on the Egg Sausage Peas show which is 2 hrs.

I have checked the web for Jonathan Royle and some of the comments on forums are less than complimentary but I hadn’t checked before and this hadn’t coloured my view of the show.

I thought the show was great. The audience was not that large but was attentive and enthusiastic.

The Show

Got started with some comedy warm up tricks eg. ‘can you guess what word I am going to predict?’ No – pulls out card with No on. A lady picked a celebrity which was Simon Cowell and Jonathan Royle pulls out 3 cards with pictures of babies on then picture of Simon Cowell, which was an impressive prediction.

A guy was asked up on stage for a card prediction. A deck of cards tied by an elastic band were thrown out and 3 members of the audience including me looked at a card each. I had 10 of clubs.

Jonathan chose 1 card to write down and the audience member rang a friend who chose the other 2.

Jonathan wrote 3 numbers on a card and read them out then asked us each to sit down individually if our card had been read out. One by one we all sat down.

5 stars: 5 members of the audience were chosen to get up on stage and they had to choose masks with celebrity faces on. The faces were then matched up with favourite colours but in the reveal we saw the trick had gone wrong.

Next was a trick on the power of positive thinking. Quite a big guy was selected to sit on a chair and the other 4 members of the audience tried to lift him with 2 fingers put together. They tried with signs around their necks on which was written at first negative emotions then positive emotions, and with the positive signs the man was lifted off his chair.

This was followed by a trick where one of the audience selects a number 1-6, a spike is placed on that number under a cup and a dice is rolled to decide which cups were to be smashed using only bare hands. After one of the earlier tricks had gone wrong this one was a bit nerve wracking!

There were a few more tricks which went well including predicting a cartoon character from a book and predicting a date written on the bottom of a tray.

Luca Volpe

The Show

  • A member of the audience had to choose between 2 cards, one with a 50 euro note in. The one with no money in was chosen
  • The assistant guessed the amount of money I had in my pockets
  • He predicted who had drawn which picture out of 4 volunteers
  • He revealed some writing and numbers on a scroll at the end of the show which matched a newspaper cutting a lady made on stage

 

Mentalist Profile: Derren Brown

Derren Brown is the best mentalist of his generation.

He is constantly advancing his skills, innovating with his performances and calling out fake psychics and other frauds too.

Seeing Derren Brown perform it can be hard not to believe he possesses psychic abilities.

This guy knows what is going on in your mind, often because he has created the thoughts himself!

Early Career and TV

Brown started out at university as a hypnotist then started learning and performing close up magic in the cafe’s of Bristol.

Developing his skills over the next 7 years in Bristol Brown hit television in 1999 with 3 specials which later became the ground breaking series Mind Control. >>Derren Brown – Inside Your Mind [DVD]

Derren Brown Trick of The Mind 1 [DVD] [2004] followed on from Mind Control and the 3 series were very much a natural progression.

Trick or Treat (2007 – 2008) surprised applicants with Derren appearing out of the blue to give people a trick or treat. He hypnotised one guy and dropped him of in Marrakesh and dropped one girl, tied up, in a sack into a lake!

In The Events (2009) Brown stuck people watching at home to their seats using sublimnal messaging and bet £5,000 of a viewers money on the spin of a roulette wheel, and lost :(

Also on TV we had Derren Brown Investigates (2010) and The Experiments in 2011. In one episode of In The Experiments Derren got someone to ‘assassinate’ Stephen Fry and in another got someone to admit to a murder they didn’t commit.

TV Specials: Russian Roulette, Seance, Messiah, The Gathering, The Heist, The System, Hero at 30,000 ft, Miracles for Sale.

Live Shows

Watch some of Derren’s live shows and see his masterful control of the audience. 2011-12 he is touring Svengali.

Some of his other live shows include: Derren Brown Live (2003-04), Something Wicked This Way Comes (2005-06), Mind Reader – An Evening of Wonders (2007-08), Enigma (2009-10)

Skills

Derren Brown uses “magic, suggestion, psychology, misdirection and showmanship”

He is a master reader of people’s body language, he uses NLP to put thoughts in peoples minds, he uses lots of psychological tricks like perception without awareness and his memory techniques are something to behold!

He is a master of conjuring and hypnosis and teaches some of his tricks in his books.

Derren Brown emphasises the importance of showmanship and involving the audience.

 

 

Dynamo Magician Impossible Review

Disc 1

In part 1 Dynamo visits Miami, Manchester and London. He presents an award at the Prince’s Trust awards, hangs out with Ian Brown and amazes some sexy women.

Some of his tricks on this disc include twisting a glass bottle, stealing someone’s identity and levitating a guitar!

Dynamo performs a number of mind reading tricks in part 1 including an impressive mind read on Ian Brown.

He performs two other mentalism tricks in London. For the first Dynamo gets two people who know each other to name the same country and repeats this with three different pairs and three different countries. He also does a trick where he touches the male partner of a young couple and the girl feels it!

Oh and did I mention the walking on the Thames thing… well he does that too :)

Disc 2

In part 2 Dynamo is back on the streets of Bradford and London, visits the Snowbombing festival in the Alps, and tops things off by amazing the guests at Rios Ferdinand’s party.

He defies gravity again with bank cards and coins, turns snow into diamonds, drives blindfold round a racetrack and makes his exit from Rio’s party by walking through a glass wall.

In London Dynamo exactly guesses the amount of change in someone’s wallet and back in Bradford he performs 3 mind reads, including a contact on someones phone. Hypnosis is surely at play in the walking through glass effect.

Disc 3

Dynamo’s mentalism tricks are undoubtedly the strongest effect in this episode. I am talking about mind reading 5 guys playing dominos at a park in Miami and mind reading 2 songs from a local DJ.

The effects he does around the pool table are also very impressive.

The tricks with the biggest ‘wow’ factor are effects at a roof party where Dynamo seemingly teleports and another where he blows letters from a cinema billboard.

He also does a cool trick where he seaparates the ice, water and teabag from an iced tea and burns a $20 then makes it reappear inside a lightbulb.

Disc 4

Dynamo performs some really cool mentalism tricks in this episode. He mind reads a number between 1-1000 from Nick Hogan and a random place from a girl in the street and Natalie Imbruglia. He draws the same as a street artist back to back too.

Dynamo stretches himself physically in this episode, stopping his heart for 10 seconds and bench pressing 3 x his own bodyweight in the gym.

There is also seemingly a miracle when Dynamo brings a wall full of ornamental butterflies to life and an amazing prediction live on Radio 1.

Bonus Disc

Behind the scenes and extra footage.

Interestingly Dynamo says he is not a mind reader though does use some techniques to create that illusion.

Dynamo’s Concrete Playground Review

Dynamo’s Concrete Playground is the magicians first DVD release and its a cracker!

Starting off in Dynamo’s home town of Bradford, Dynamo performs tricks for the locals before taking to the road with his 2 best mates, dazzling the people of Birmingham and London with his modern style of magic.

Tricks include levitation of a £50 note, smashing bottles with his mind and Dynamo’s signature polo through the neck trick.

Dynamo’s slight of hand is impressive with him being able to place coins under peoples’ watches without them noticing and seemingly dropping coins through solid glass tabletops.

He is masterful with the cards, making the deck disappear, putting cigarettes through cards, and making cards appear out of his top pocket…. when he has no top pocket!

Mentalism Tricks

It has to be said there is not a great deal in the way of mentalism tricks in the DVD however the mind reading in a shop/ gallery in London gets one of the best reactions on the whole DVD.

As a modern magic DVD I would give Dynamo’S Concrete Playground (Dvd) [2006] 5* every time.

Mentalist Profile: Dynamo

Dynamo AKA Stephen Frayne is a magician and mentalist from Bradford in the UK. Born in 1982, Dynamo grew up on the deprived Delph Hill estate in Bradford.

Dynamo says:

‘It helps to have a skill growing up around here (in Delph Hill), for some its breaking and entering, for me it’s magic’.

Starting Out

Dynamo began learning magic at the age of 11 to get school bullies off his back and started devoting more time to magic when he moved in with his grandparents at the age of 15.

His grandpa Kenneth used to perform magic in bars around Bradford and showed Dynamo some magic. Dynamo would spend night and day practising and reading every magic book he could lay his hands on.

Starting out he couldn’t even shuffle a pack of cards. If you see his skills now that’s hard to believe!

Early Career

Fastforward to 2004 and Dynamo was loaned some money by UK Charity the Prince’s Trust to buy a video camera. He moved to London and began shooting videos.

This was right around the time Youtube was starting to get popular and soon Dynamo’s street magic videos were getting 100,000s of views; millions of people around the world were watching him amaze people in the capital.

Dynamo’s increasing popularity gave him the opportunity to perform on the celebrity circuit, performing for such celebs as Coldplay and Paris Hilton.

Magician to the Stars

Now Dynamo bills himself as magician to the stars, performing at red carpet and other celebrity events around the world. He says playing to celebs like Pharell Williams, Paris Hilton and De La Soul is a dream come true.

Dynamo has also made numerous TV appearances. His first TV appearance was on Richard & Judy and he has since appeared numerous times including charity events, adverts and panel shows.

He has released 2 DVDs, based on his TV shows Dynamo’S Concrete Playground (Dvd) [2006] and Dynamo: Magician Impossible [DVD].

Style

Dynamo brings elements of bodypopping, breakdancing and MCing to his magic to give a modern urban style.

He performs up close magic and mentalism as well as larger pieces like the ‘walking on the Thames’ trick seen in Dynamo: Magician Impossible [DVD].

He still loves the energy of performing magic on the streets and the power it has to bring different people together and says that is the greatest buzz.

Dynamo incorporates mentalism into his performance using mindreading and hypnosis for some of his effects.

Interesting Facts

The stage name Dynamo was adopted after a magic convention at the New York Hilton in 2002. He was performing to a group of magicians when a member of the audience shouted out ‘That kid’s a Dynamo!’

Dynamo was diagnosed with Crones disease when he was a kid and was hospitalised several times with it.

Dynamo’s favourite place is Miami.

Quotes

‘Sometimes I wonder if my life has all been an illusion but if there’s one thing I’ve learned its that reality is only what you make it’

‘Everybody has the power to be extraordinary, no matter where they come from or what their circumstance, its just a matter of belief’

‘Some people think its impossible to change the future but in reality the future is only what you make it’
