PerplexionsLearn easy-to-do, hard-hitting mental magic
(what does this mean?)
1. Self Working
Self working magic tricks are tricks that just work! They require no sleight of hand whatsoever. They are absolutely perfect for beginners. Desipite being super easy, we still recommend practising them in private first to perfect your patter and presentation.
2. Easy to Learn
These tricks are also beginner friendly, but there will most likely be a few sneaky (but fairly easy) moves to rehearse and remember before the trick is ready to be performed. Unlike self working tricks, these will require a little more confidence, but we believe in you!
3. Some Experience Necessary
Products in this category aren't difficult to do, but they will require some basic knowledge of the craft. If you know what a false cut is and can do a double lift, you've probably got what it takes to get value from these tricks. If you have no idea what any of that just meant, don't worry, you will after watching our beginners masterclass (coming soon).
4. Dedication Required
We always recommend practising your magic, even for self working tricks. But these tricks will require more than the average. Products that require some more advanced coin or card manipulations will probably fall into this category. Or tricks that need you to memorise a lot of information.
5. Serious Dedication Required
You're a serious magician if you're venturing into these realms. But it's true what they say; dicipline is rarely enjoyable but it is ALWAYS profitable. And boy, will you will reap the rewards. We salute you!
Adam Dadswell mixes simple sleight of hand with mentalism to create a unique blend of easy-to-do, hard-hitting mental magic.
Learn card tricks with a mental flavour that will leave your spectators stunned!
Great for mentalists and great for magicians looking to inject engaging mental presentations into their acts.
A spectator finds the missing piece to a conceptual jigsaw puzzle before they even know there is a puzzle to solve. A fun, inquisitive presentation for a powerful, impromptu effect that's incredibly easy to perform.
Three spectators choose any card from a pile of cards in their own hands. The piles are returned to you in any order. Despite your fair, hands-off presentation, you are able to reveal each spectator's selection with success. Next-to-no set up time required for this near-impromptu miracle (you'll be ready to go in under ten seconds with a borrowed deck).
An impromptu exploration of psychology's Filling In phenomenon. A mystery card is removed face down from the deck and placed in your pocket for later. After being flashed the faces of the incomplete deck, the spectator curiously "fills in" the missing information and is able to name the card that's in your pocket. This mental presentation for a card-to-pocket routine will have your participant scratching their head, wondering if they really did misremember something or if you reprogrammed their mind.
The spectator's imagination appears to affect reality in this simple-and-direct, mind-over-matter miracle. Not only will their selected card turn over in the deck, it will even change colour! Think the classic Brainwave effect with a regular deck of cards. Everything is left 100% examinable and resets instantly.
Arguably the world's strongest Do-As-I-Do routine with a single deck of cards. The spectator is handed half the deck and is asked to mirror each of your actions. Despite handling the cards themselves, the spectator is left with FIVE impossible, jaw-dropping synchronicities. This effect is so powerful, Adam closes his professional set with it.
