Animania is another great tool for the mentalist!
It appears to be an authentic "Telepathy Testing Card" from the National Institute of Parapsychology.
Perfect for anytime, walk around and close up mentalism! This is a complete routine that fits neatly in your wallet! Be ready to perform a complete routine with just one card!
The card is about the same width as a credit card, but a little taller, so it fits perfectly in a standard credit card slot in any wallet.
The performer displays a telepathy testing card from the National Institute of Parapsychology. It is explained that this card is from the "chromatology" (study of colors) testing set, and this particular card pertains to animals.
The spectator is instructed to think on any one of the 16 animals on the card (completely free choice), and to visualize the animal appearing in 4 different colors. No words are spoken by the spectator, and no questions are asked.
The performer immediately begins to reveal information about the animal:
The spectator is asked to think of different characteristics about the animal, such as its size, color, number of legs it has, habitat, etc. (again, nothing is spoken by the spectator, and no questions are asked).
"Imagine that you're touching this animal, imagine how it feels. I get the sense that this is an animal with fur, unlike a snake or a fish. Yes, brown fur. Also, this animal has only two legs. Think about something this animal would eat... that's a banana! You're thinking of a monkey!"
Of course, the performer is always correct.
The following is true about Animania
