Mentalism Video

Posted on August 14, 2008 by chris ballinger There have been 35 comment(s)

One of our lovely customers requested that we do a video blog on mentalism. In this video I teach the original effect "Reverse Shell Game". This is a great trick to know if you want to start learning mentalism and experienced mentalists will appreciate the new take on an old method.

This blog features the book 13 Steps to Mentalism by Corinda.


Also, be sure to check out all the tricks and gimmicks available in the Mentalism Section.

    Sorry about that. It was a typo, if you had tried to order it, it would have charged you. I've fixed the problem. Thanks for letting me know about it.

    Hi, I have came across your site and seen the video. In my way, Ill put 3 cups, and ask them to put any where they like. most of my "audience" didn't reshuffle the cups, so, the only cups moved is the cup they place the money under. and That's the trick.

    it is one of those tricks were when it tells you the secret u feel really stupid. i havn't performed it yet and i hav had it for prbably five days now. the reason why is because it is a little angle sensative. but the commercial is 100% true, it is completly impromtu and 100% safe. and it has nothing to do with the old methods of placing something under your or pschological suggestion. you should definately get it
