Arcanum by Enrico & Valerio Messa
"This effect looks and feels like genuine mind reading. It's that clean.
The amount of other effects I can think of applying this principle to make this a complete steal. Simple, effective and well thought out."
Arcanum is an insane card prediction where your spectators have the cleanest most fair selection possible.
The mentalist give a prediction to the spectator before anything happens. The magician shows that every single card have a completely different word on it. The spectator can stop on any card and it will match with the prediction every single time.
Yes that’s correct. The spectator have a completely free choice.
Arcanum comes with 4 routines The Messa Brothers included a bonus routine called Medieval Monte which is the same as the three card monte but it not use any sleight of hand whatsoever and you will win every single time. Or if you want to use it as a prediction, like you predict in which round you or the spectator going to win you can do that too.
Arcanum comes with a special deck that do all the work for you. This deck is completely self working.
