This is not a new concept. This is a method that you will find in Corinda’s 13 Steps to Mentalism. However, this is a very nicely made prop.

The instruction is very good, with some subtleties that are unique to this project.

The effect is easy to set up and easy to cleanup.

This is very easy to do and can be performed completely surrounded.


Not a lot of downside to this. Nice product, good instruction.


Very nice project. Good quality props and good instruction.

Suggestions from the Reviewer

One of the things I’m surprised they didn’t cover is a small subtlety that will make the presentation so much stronger. Write something in advance and something during the performance. For example, you could write a prediction: “You will select”, “and”, etc. You will need to be a bit more careful during presentation, but the outcome is more impossible.

Manufacturer's Description:

Bobby Motta is a full time working mentalist. He chooses his effects because they work... his living depends on it. Bobby is the tough guy you have seen in the Red Artifice trailer, shot by Peter McKinnon who is also a contributor to Blackmail.

Blackmail is a UTILITY that allows you to predict ANYTHING. Don't switch anything, don't use duplicates and don't bother with a "get ready". The envelope is in full view at all times.

Easily predict cards, numbers, images and drawings. Starts clean, ends clean.


Full Overview
Peter McKinnon and Bobby Motta have thrown out the rule book, meaning you can now predict anything - a thought-of card, a name, a number - even a drawing - all with your prediction sealed inside an envelope - before you even ask the spectator to think of it.

Whether you're new to mentalism, or a mind-reading expert, Blackmail is a fantastic utility device that will amplify your performances. It's powerful, easy to use and versitile. What more can you ask? ~Eric Jones
