Product Description


ROCK, PAPER, LIES. A classic Rock, Paper, Scissors game... gone mental!

The mentalist turns around while two spectators are playing rock, paper, scissors (or even an imaginary game), NO WAY he could know who won and what symbols were played, and yet using their body language he can reveal everything! Rock, Paper, Lies is a rock, paper, scissors game where you will not only be able to guess who is the winner, but also which symbol they played with and who is lying and who is telling the truth. Jay Di Biase gave a new life to a well known method creating a mind blowing, propless mentalism routine.


"Usually when someone says they have improved an effect they have only improved it in their mind to the detriment of the original routine or effect, in this case, this is not true. This improvement takes the liar logic problem into a whole new arena opening up doors for many more applications... well done."

Jay Di Biase's RPS is great! Based on Banachek's liar/truthteller effect, Jay has taken the basic idea and added a wonderful take with the Rock, Paper, Scissor game. When he first showed me this in Italy last month, I was knocked for a loop even though I knew the original effect! It all seems so innocent and yet you know everything! It's the perfect anytime/anyplace effect. If you need further recommendation, let me just say I have added this effect to my repertoire and I am doing it everywhere! I love it!

This is the best application and improvement of the liar/truth teller method that I have ever seen! This is propless mentalism at its best!

This DVD is a study in contrasts. The concept and trick is excellent and that alone deserves 5 out of 5 stars. It is based upon a Banachek effect and is in fact endorsed by him. It is truly prop-less mentalism that can be performed with no notice. However, the production quality for such a great trick is lacking and the promotional video is somewhat misleading due to the editing.

In Rock Paper Lies, the performer asks two participants to play Rock Paper Scissors behind his back and not to reveal who won. Then the performer asks each spectator to either be a liar or truth teller. If the spectator is a liar, any question asked of them by the performer must be answered with a lie. And, of course, if the spectator chooses to be the truth teller, he must always respond truthfully. The spectators can choose the same or different roles. Then, the performer ask only three questions, which each spectator answers according to their role, and the performer is able to guess the... [Read More]

The routine is fun and entertaining. It is very engaging. We will talk a bit about what you don’t see in the trailer in the “CONS” section, but these pieces couldn’t be shown as they would likely tip the method. Having said that, the pieces that you don’t see are very engaging and entertaining.

The trailer doesn’t show the entire routine, so here is a summary. You ask two participants to play rock paper scissors hidden from your view. You then ask them to decide (also secretly) whether they will individually always lie or always tell the truth. You then ask them a series of questions and you are able to tell them who was lying or telling the truth, who won, and what they presented (rock, paper, or scissors). The questions are clever. I would say that most people will not figure out the method.

As the ad copy states, this is something that you can do entirely impromptu with no gimmicks or props of any sort. It involves just your mind and the mind of... [Read More]
