In this video download, Scott Creasey addresses the age-old question of whether a mentalist should use cards or not with a selection of commercial card effects with a purely mental flavour.
Scott Creasey has put together some of his favorite mentalism card routines, covering effects with borrowed decks, stacked decks and gaffed decks. By his own admission, some of the ideas are based on old effects and given a new twist. However, others are exclusive to him and were designed using tried and tested methods.
You'll find no knuckle busting sleight of hand here. Instead, Scott has included some of his own routines taken straight from his professional mentalism repertoire, many of which no other magicians have seen until now.
