A perfectly-structured, multi-phase mentalism routine that convincingly toes the line of true mind control.

Henry Harrius Presents is proud to bring you “Totem” by Alex Ng. This wildly clever routine combines a variety of powerful mentalism principles and psychological elements to create a mind-blowing effect that you can easily carry in your pocket.


“A streamlined and surefire routine combining a number of classic methods resulting in a demonstration that will astound and surprise your audiences.” Colin Cloud

“Totem” begins by allowing your spectator to hold a coin-shaped object covered in gold foil. You then take them on an imaginary journey where they’ll make a variety of decisions including: a number, a color, a city, a flower and a painting. This process is so fair, they truly won’t believe their eyes when they unwrap the object in their hand and discover it’s actually a poker chip that perfectly predicts every decision they made.

The ingenious structure of this routine, and the combination of devious methods it employs, ensures you’ll always have a successful conclusion. You’ll never have to worry about potential for failure that can often accompany these bold feats of mentalism.

What You Get:

  • Custom-crafted “Totem” poker chip
  • Special gimmicks
  • 100 sheets of gold foil paper

You’ll also get comprehensive video instruction from Alex Ng, who walks through everything in complete step-by-step detail. He even shows how you can add some extra elements to the base routine or streamline it for quicker walkaround close-up magic events.

"This is like having a mini act in your pocket. The way psychological forces are used, connected with the final phase of the routine, is very clever so that you can always be accurate in the final reveal. This is something that, for sure, will always be in my pocket!" Luca Volpe

“The props are devious. The blending of methods both new and old are quite clever and well structured. ‘Totem’ will easily find its way into the daily repertoire of the modern mystery performer.” Patrick Redford

“I love sneaky methods. ‘Totem’ delivers one after another to give a multiple revelation routine that takes up no pocket space at all. What more could you want?” Jon Allen

The safety net for a failed psyche force is fantastic.

I don't care much for the foil, but that's my only complaint.

I don’t know where to start! This is a worker for sure. If you are into mentalism and close up magic, then this is for you. This packs so small but leaves your spectator completely fooled and entertained. I cannot stress enough how powerful this is. I am a close up magician and a worker, and this goes with me everywhere I go. This effect makes fantasy a reality. Furthermore, it is so fun and easy to perform! The quality is amazing, and will last a lifetime!

There's some ingenious combinations of thinking at the heart of this release, but the central gimmick aside I'm not sure it offers much that's particukarly new. They cleverly get around the issue of failed psychological forces, although any smarter-than-the-average-bear spectator may be suspicious at the way free choices are limited. Tacked together, they're pretty transparent. I wish more than one gimmick had been provided as it's something that will be easily lost when out performing. If you're in the UK, for example, geographical/cultural proximity factors make particular key psych forces seen in the trailer less likely to hit in my experience. More than one poker chip with different carefully selected images would have been a massive help. I hope they offer other options in future.
