“Mental Card Read Revealed”
Hey Guys, Ryan Here... Welcome To The “Mental Card Read Revealed” Video (or companion report in this case) Before we get into the execution of the trick, I just want to quickly mention that I know there is a wide range people watching this video (or reading the report in your case) with varying mentalism and magic experience all the way from the Raw Rookie who's never done a magic trick or mentalism effect in their life, all the way up to the professional magician or mentalist level... The reason I bring this up is because it's very difficult to teach a magic or mentalism trick when you have a varying skill levels of people watching, so what we decided to do is meet somewhere in the middle so if you're already experienced, this effect could be somewhat basic to you and you might already have something similar that you're using already, of course you can still watch to brush up but even if you skip it, don't worry we have other things in the pipeline that we'll be sending you later that you'll love... And even if you are a beginner, I still believe that if you're a fast learner and have a couple of hours of practice time, you can be performing this trick as soon as tonight... But that doesn't mean you should be... Even after you have the mechanics of this, or any trick down, you should spend just as much time working on your delivery and presentation of the trick or effect.
