Direct and diabolical close up mentalism! Paul Richards and Elmwood Magic are proud to present TOKEN…

You place a simple paper envelope on the table. Within its confines is a small metal token. You now introduce five ESP cards, which you openly mix. The packet is given to a spectator, who is asked to turn the cards face down and select any one they wish. The selected card is placed aside, or in the spectator’s pocket. No one – including the spectator – knows what symbol has been selected.

The token is now removed from the envelope – an ESP symbol is displayed boldly printed on one side. The spectator removes his card to reveal – the exact same symbol!

  • Only one Token is used and it is in the envelope from the beginning of the routine.
  • There is no force, any symbol can be selected and it will be different each time.
  • If you wish, the spectator may mix the cards.
  • Only five cards are used. No sleights are necessary.
  • Reset takes only seconds.
  • All may be examined.

Additional handlings are covered including, a method that uses a single business card instead of the symbols. An excellent approach that puts your business card in the spectator’s hands to keep!

Comes complete with all necessary props and detailed instructional DVD with additional ideas and insights.

A Must Have!

I purchased Token after seeing it demonstrated at the Real Magic Roadshow. Best $40 I could have spent! (And if you didn’t go to the RMR you missed out!)

There are several layers to the props and they all work flawlessly and easily. It only took a little practice — very little practice — after viewing the DVD and I was using this and blowing people away.

It is nice to have something I can have on me at all times that takes up so little space but is more than just a stack of cards. The quality of the token itself really sets this trick apart. I’ll normally lead off with a few card tricks and then finish with Token before walking away.

I would encourage anyone to buy Token, unless you live in the Boston area, because right now I’m enjoying that not many people have seen it!

A personal mentalism effect…

This is very good for the magician who wishes to present a good mentalism effect to one participant or possibly a small group.

The effect is easy to present and offers a high impact conclusion. An included gimmick makes this illusion possible. It is clever and simple to perform. If one wishes to perform mentalism on an intimate basis, I recommend “Token.” It produces a most impressive impact for me. Plus, it is small enough carry on you when someone asks for an impromptu mental demonstration.

Terrific and Easy

This is a strong and easy to perfrom pocket mentalism effect. There is a one time set up that takes a minute to do. It takes a bit of practice to perform smoothly but nothing complicated. It is very clever and easy to perform. I would recommend this!

Great Ice Breaker

This is great trick to break the ice in a one or two on one situation. The handling is clear and easy, resets in a flash, it makes an immediate impression.
