Thought Swiper by Patrik Kuffs
“Thought Swiper is fantastic! I wish I’d thought of this! There is no faster way to get to the thought-of card. Absolutely wonderful!” – Bob Farmer
“I think it’s so damn clever and honestly I’ve been having so much fun with it. It’s an amazing little device and once magicians find out about it will carry it with them at all times.” – Paul Romhany
“Patrik abhors memory work and mental arithmetic on stage. In “Thought Swiper” a fiendishly clever print gimmick strips a powerful principle older than Professor Hoffmann’s Modern Magic (1876) of all its fussy calculations and memorization. The prop visually integrates all the salient technicalities, freeing the mind to sell the elegant effect.” – Jan Bardi
“I have just 3 words to describe your Thought Swiper: Brilliant! Brilliant! Brilliant!” – The Unknown Mentalist
A participant chooses a card (mentally) and keeps its identity secret. Guided by the magician’s instructions, the person slides their finger on the row containing their card directly onto the Thought Swiper. As soon as this is done (almost) the magician is in a position to reveal the identity of the card. How is this possible?
Thanks to the Thought Swiper system, it is the participant himself (without knowing it) who transmits the identity of his card. The formula is simple to use and the participant does most of the work.
There is no forcing or psychological subterfuge or electronic gimmicks. The Thought Swiper uses a very simple, fast, and direct solution in order to determine a mentally chosen card. The “Think A Card” theme is finally accessible to everyone. Imagine the many possibilities!
Purchasing options explained:
- gimmick + PDF: You will receive two Thought Swiper cards professionally printed. These cards are a bit larger than a poker-sized card (77 mm x 102 mm). Plus you will be able to download the PDF instructions.
- PDF: You will be able to download the PDF instructions but no gimmick will be mailed to you. You will have to print out the Thought Swiper as shown in the PDF and make your own card.
- gimmick: You will only receive two Thought Swiper cards, no instructions. This is meant for all those customers who have purchased the PDF only and who want to purchase the ready-made gimmick rather than construct it themselves.
