PROS

If you are into any sort of mentalism, you should have a few methods in your bag of tricks. This is in my list of top favorites.

You get a lot in the package. You get enough material for 100 performances. You also get two “mind reading fish”, and a special pen. Once you perform this 100 times, they say there will be refills available. Once you learn the secret, you could purchase replacements. They are not too difficult to find, but one of the components is quite expensive. You would likely get a lifetime supply, but the cost is pretty high. The other component isn’t too expensive, but you would need to search the internet a bit to get it. I don’t know what the cost of refills will be, but that may be the best way to go. This product is at a very good price considering the high cost of the materials involved.

You also get a link to performances and instructions by Bro Gilbert. The instruction is very good. Bro teaches a wide varieties of applications of this. Here are a few examples:

You take a card out of an envelope. On it, you have drawn two symbols. You place them down on the table and place the envelope on top and ask them to place their hand over the envelope so they can’t possibly see what you have drawn. You ask the participant to read your mind. They attempt to read your mind. You then reveal drawings on the card and ask them to draw anything on the other side. They place the card with their drawing face down on the table and the envelope on top of it. You then read their mind and draw a duplication of what they have in their mind on the envelope.

Another routine is you bring out a mind reading fish. You have them draw anything on a blank card and they place it face down on the table. The fish goes in the envelope and it is placed on the card. The fish is removed from the envelope and placed on their hand. It curls in different patterns, and it reveals to you their thought of image.

My favorite routine is this one: You hand the participant a blank card and ask them to write or draw anything on the card and place it drawing down on the table. You then take out a bill and say you are going to bet a dollar on it. You then say you are so confident, you are going to put even more money on it. You are able to either reveal what they wrote or drew, or duplicate it on another card or piece of paper.

The ad copy makes a bold statement, saying: “Read minds with secret technology the public doesn't even know exists. They'll literally never guess how you do it.” As bold as this is, I think it is accurate. If you like what you see, then you will love this!

CONS

There really isn’t much negative to talk about. This is really an awesome impression system. Of course, you will need to purchase refills after 100 performances.

AT A GLANCE

The skill level required: 1 of 5.
Audience management skill required: 2 of 5.
Performance angles: 360 degrees
The reset time required: Immediate.
The DIY time involved in advance: Anywhere from none to a couple minutes

VERDICT

This is one of my top five favorite mentalism tools. The method is simply fascinating and I think you just might love it to the point where it becomes one of your favorites too.


Suggestions from the Reviewer

While the video focuses on performing this with a table and placing the card on a table with the participant’s hand over the card, I have tested this in the hands, with the participant placing the card between their hands. So, this could be done on stage as well as at a table.

Available at your favorite Murphy’s Magic dealer

Paul Harris Presents
STEAM 2.0

ONE OF THE WORLD'S MOST INGENIOUS MIND-READING SECRETS PERFECTED!
by Ali Nouira

Based on Marc Salem's BROTHER OF ALL DUPLICATIONS PRINCIPLE

"Brilliant in and out of box thinking. A winner!"
-Marc Salem

You instantly know what she secretly wrote on a blank business card...while the face-down card is covered by her hand -- or a bunch of hands -- or even a book!

THE PERFECT PROPS
THE PERFECT PRESENTATION
THE PERFECT SECRET
THE PERFECT EVERYTHING!

Watch the Demo Now:
Seriously. When you see the STEAM 2.0 method, you'll need a moment of astonished silence to take in the sheer steamy beauty of the ingenious secret.

YOU NEVER HAVE TO TOUCH OR EVEN SEE THE CARD...YET YOU ALWAYS KNOW EXACTLY WHAT SHE HAS DRAWN!

You can even turn your back while the spectator writes her secret word and covers it with her hand (and whatever else she wants to cover it with).
You can even have a spectator cover your eyes with her hands.
You can even be in a different room and direct her over the phone.
And yet, when you come back into the room, you can still discover her secret word or drawing!

STEAM 2.0 comes complete with plenty of steamy new presentations.
Very Very Easy to do. STEAM 2.0 is basically self-working. No carbon copies. No electronics. Special blank business card stock stays completely blank on the back after writing. No one can see through the back of the card. You never have to "peek" the card. Turn your back to the spectator or be out of the room while she writes and covers her word. 5 second reset. Adapt to your own Sharpie. Completely self contained. Nothing to secretly load, switch or ditch. Everything can be examined.

ENOUGH SECRET STUFF FOR 100 PERFORMANCES
Plus! A Bonus set of 50 STEAM 2.0 bill gaffs for an out-of-your-wallet "money hustle" presentation.

And YES! You even get Two (2) Fortune Telling Fish for the Steamed Red Herring presentation.

* REFILL PACKS WILL BE AVAILABLE IN THE NEAR FUTURE.

STEAM 2.0
THE PERFECT SECRET FOR THE PERFECT STEAM.
