Wayne Dobson has come up with a new set of telepathy cards using the 5 senses replacing the overflowing ESP symbol products.
"The first version of the now-classic ESP Card Matching effect I saw was done with playing cards, in a Brother John Hamman book written in the year I was born: 1957! This approach to the effect contained a discrepancy that I couldn't live with, and for some years I have worked on various matching ESP card routines searching for one that is clean, sleight-free and powerful in the effect it has on the spectators.
Recently I made a breakthrough in my thinking around the handling of this, which finally satisfied the conditions I set myself: replacing the ESP symbols on the cards with images of the Five Senses in a strong effect with an engaging, attractive presentation hook.
In the main Non-Sense routine, you and a spectator each hold a matching set of 5 cards showing images of our five senses: sight, sound, taste, smell and touch. You each shuffle your packets, and in turn you lay your prediction card down first, whereupon the spectator decides on the one she thinks will match it. This is repeated for each of the five cards. When you show the cards, with no sleights or messing about, the spectator has matched each of your predictions! And best of all, throughout there are no annoying discrepancies in the handling: everything is clean and above-board. Plus there are some delicious moments of bare-faced cheek! When I was performing on television, this was the type of routine I would love to present because it looks so strong and clean. So we've added that routine as a bonus."
