Sudoku by Scott Creasey and World Magic Shop
The Sudoku Booktest looks like something that can be picked up at a local store. The reality is that this innocent looking book can be used to create a full twenty minute mentalism routine for multiple or single participants culminating in a high energy performance of the magic square.
Every test is justified with a psychological test (also featured in the book) providing you with an engaging intro to each demonstration.
All of the effects require no memory work at all meaning that you can concentrate on blowing people away.
Just some of the effects possible:
After successfully transmitting a number to them, your subject thinks of multiple numbers within a Sudoku puzzle from anywhere in the book. You are able to reveal the numbers and also the order in which they are thought of! They never write anything down and all of the puzzles are different.
Your subject chooses any word search puzzle and concentrates on one of the words. With no fishing at all you reveal the chosen word! This is incredibly direct!
After a psychological demonstration courtesy of Cambridge University, which is also printed in the book, another subject thinks of a different word. In a random order, the letters are transmitted to the performer before the word is revealed as a whole.
The subject chooses one of the words from the word search. They are then asked to draw what it represents to them. Under impossible and test conditions you can recreate the image. You can do this back to back for theatrical effect or even from in another room.
On a pad, the performer draws a large square which is split up into 16 smaller squares. A final volunteer opens the book to any Sudoku puzzle and chooses any square containing random digits. Two individual digits are chosen and their order is decided upon by the volunteer. Within thirty second the performer completes an amazing Sudoku puzzle that adds up to the chosen number in multiple ways leaving them in no doubt of your abilities.
Use all or just a couple of the effects above to leave your audience speechless!
You will receive an innocent looking Sudoku Word Search booklet featuring 118 pages in total. It has 112 puzzle pages (56 Sudoku Puzzles and 56 Word Search Puzzles). The back of the book also features the psychological stunt pages which allow you to intro each effect so convincingly.
With this book, a pad of paper and a pen you can perform a stand alone act suitable for adults and children in any performing conditions ranging from close up to cabaret.
If you're looking for a book test that's decidedly different or a single prop from which you can create a slew of mindreading effects, "The Sudoku Book Test" is highly recommended. -Danny Orleans, Genii Magazine
