Thought Wave Extreme
by Gary Jones & Mark Bendell
Jones is very well known for creating 100% commercial routines, which
play as well to the Lay Spectator as they do to magicians. Thought Wave
Extreme is no exception!
Thought Wave Extreme Gary and Mark has taken a principle and given it
a new lease of life with an incredible double hit mind reading card routine.
start by writing a prediction (sight unseen) on a business card, Post-
it note etc. The card is folded and placed on full view on the table.
small card which contains 52 different symbols is examined by your spectator
who then merely thinks of any one of the symbols (this is a totally free
now write something on another card and once again fold it and place it
in full view. At this point you have committed to two predictions without
your spectator giving you any information or saying a single word.
now ask your spectator to draw his symbol on the outside of the first
piece of paper. The second prediction is now placed onto the spectators
hand and they name aloud the first playing card that comes in to their
mind (absolutely no force) they now write their thought of card on your
draw attention to a deck of cards which has been on the table since the
start of the effect. The cards are removed and shown to have images drawn
on the back of each one. You remove their freely named card and the card
with the freely chosen image on its back.
bet you can see where this is going!! Your spectator now opens your first
prediction (the one they have drawn their image on) and it reads the 5
of clubs. When they turn over the card it is in fact the 5 of clubs!!
You now state that the second prediction was even harder as the spectator
could name any card. When they open prediction number 2 they see you have
drawn a clock. They turn over their freely named card only to reveal a
clock on the back!!!
really is a 100% commercial routine that has been well thought out and
packs a very big double punch!
