With 99 Hotels, you not just get one single effect, but a toolbox that enables various mental and mental magical effects.
These effects can be used equally in informal or close up, as well as in stand-up or parlor situations.
In addition to three ready-made routines, that are suitable for both beginners and professionals, this set includes a printed pocket-sized booklet that you can always carry with you and do not need an internet connection for reading and learning. In this booklet you will get a lot of „food for thought“ on how to use these cards in almost any situation.
The package itself consists of two sets of 20 different, real-looking hotel key cards. One set was printed on 0.8 mm thick material and the other on 0.5 mm thick material. You can use these cards for many effects that you are familiar with from routines with playing cards. The advantage is, that the cards don’t look like a magic prop and the hotel and holiday theme offer plenty of space for storytelling.
In addition, you will receive a „crib card“ in the form of a VIP member card. On the back, all hotels are listed and that gives you the opportunity to secretly peek the name of a choosen hotel if you use the cards in a (not) memorized stack. These crip function is also integrated in two specially designed download documents that can be stuck on as the apparent outside of a travel guide – optionally on books in DIN-A-6 or Pocket book format.
In addition, there are two double-face cards in each strength, with which it is possible to achieve further effects like multiple predictions of playing cards, drinks or numbers. The set is rounded off by two blank cards with a thickness of 0.8 mm.
The whole set comes in a very high-quality, specially made cardboard box so that you always have all the cards in place and keep them clean. In the lid of this packaging you will also find the download for the included PDF documents,
Here is a short example effect with two spectators, which is possible with this set, among other things:
You ask two spectators onto the stage, to whom you present your 20 key cards as a reminder your last travels. Each of the two spectators can lift the cards a few times. After mixing the cards this way, you give each spectator 5 cards.
The two assistants are asked to look at their 5 cards and then choose a hotel. The hotel that each spectator has chosen is placed in the stack of the other spectator.
Only the spectators themselves know which hotels they are thinking of. Both stacks are shuffled again by the spectators. You now take the stack from spectator 1 and look through it. Here you ask spectator 2 to concentrate on his hotel. After a few concentrated “efforts” on your part, you will be able to name the hotel that spectator 2 has chosen.
But that’s not all. Now ask spectator 2 to take his stack between his hands and hold them out. You put your hand between your hands and pull out a card. It is the card that spectator 1 has previously chosen.
Here are a few more options that you can implement with this set:
- One ahead effects
- Multiple out routines
- Pateo Forces
- Magicians Forces
- Image duplications
This is, what german mentalist Jan Forster says about 99 Hotels:
“I was lucky enough to be able to play with the hotel key cards from “99 Hotels”. Well done, the cards are looking absolutely real and there is an incredible amount in the entire kit: great ideas, routines, suggestions and further thoughts. I quickly came up with my own ideas, that are possible with it. The kit is stimulating and is a real and incredibly versatile tool!
And Luca Volpe, worldclass Italian mentalist wrotes:
„You have a winner – well done!“
