What's in the box? 84 pieces! 3 sets of envelopes, a prediction and all of the cards included + the pdf instruction
Is it what I thought? Yes, it is a svengali style envelope effect. It’s all pretty straight forward in the write-up.
How are the angles? Super clean, no angle issues.
Can it be inspected? I would show some of the contents of the other “non-force” envelopes, but I would not let the spectator go through all of the envelopes – that would give away the secret.
What is taught on the pdf? Over 22 effects! Almost all the routines for svengali cards and Svengali pads/books can also be performed with Svenlopes - with an added layer of deception. In fact, when a spectator chooses one envelope out of many, she can freely handle the single envelope -- there is nothing apparently gimmicked about it. Not just that, the spectator can freely handle the pack of Svenlopes by giving it multiple complete cuts and then choosing the top envelope anytime.
Is it well made? Typical handmade envelopes and materials.
How much practice does it require? If you’re familiar with the svengali™ principle, it’s suepr easy.
How much set up and reset is there? The short and long gimmicks are placed into a repeating deck stack. This trick will come pre-set up ready to go out of the box.
Positives? This is a nice “mates” routine that is super beginner friendly.
Is it worth my money? This is only $30, well worth it for what you are getting.
Who would like this? Beginning mentalists
