WHAT THEY SEE

entalist: How many of you have played


the game of Chinese Whispers or Word
Association?

I will throw this ball out and whoever catches it, I


would like you to toss it onto someone else until we
have six people. As soon as you have thrown the ball
please come down onto the stage and stand in a
line.
While that is going on, I am going to hand out a
number of cards and I would like you to write a
single random word on it then pass it on to the person
next to you. The cards have the numbers one to ten
Page | 7

written on them. Some of your words can be similar,


but remember there are unlimited words to choose
from. Just make sure you write clearly, and no dirty
words please.
The mentalist hands out two small clipboards with
cards on them.
As he hands out the first clipboard, he says:
Mentalist: Dont be influenced by this: music.
We are using lists, as influencing all of you without
something specific to focus on would be impossible.
Or is it? I can only try and read what type of things
people might do. This doesnt always work but it will
be very impressive if we can get close.
The mentalist hands the second clipboard to an
audience member.
Mentalist: Dont be influenced by this: Hunting.
Page | 8

The mentalist lines five people up as they come to


the stage. The sixth person is asked to stand on the
opposite side of the stage.
Mentalist: For those of you who have never played
Chinese Whispers, it works like this: The first person
thinks of a word and whispers it to the person next to
them. That person associates a word with the first and
tells the next person and so on. It is important that
you each associate a word with the word you have
been told. Now, before we start I need to speak to
you.
The mentalist stands in front of the first person in the
line.
Mentalist: Everyone standing in a line, please plant
your feet firmly on the floor, shoulders back and look
me directly in the eyes.

Page | 9

Mentalist: How old were you when you experienced


your first kiss?
Volunteer: 24
Mentalist: Excellent. Please look at the words and
then when you have a word in mind, whisper it to the
person on your left. After you hear a word, associate
it with one of the words on your list and so on down
the line.
When the last person has associated their word could
you please come over to the microphone.
While this is happening the mentalist walks over to
Kim (volunteer #6 and future psychic.) He leans over
and whispers in her ear the secrets of mind reading.
(We will get to the mechanics of this part in a
second.)
The fifth person in the line comes to the microphone.

Page | 10

Mentalist: Please confirm that each of you had a free


and fair choice of any word and its associations by
just raising your hands.
Thats excellent. Please say your name into the
microphone for everyone to hear.
Volunteer #5: Paul
Mentalist : Thank you Paul, for taking part in this
experiment. You can also confirm that you had a
free choice to associate any word you were given to
one of your choosing? And that was as fair as we
can be in these conditions? Seven personalities, five
lists, fifty words and one single idea. You cannot help
but be amazed if Kim was able to take on my ability
to see into the future, right?
He hands Paul the note pad.
Mentalist: Please write the word you are thinking of
now.
Page | 11

Actually I dont want to see what it is.


Clairvoyant Kim is positioned in front of the mic.
Mentalist: I am going to count from one to three and
on three, I want you to turn your board around Paul
and Kim, you must say out loud the word you have
divined. If these two words match I want you to give
them a massive round of applause.
He counts 1, 2 and drops hand as if starting a race.
Pauls board says: Note.
Kim shouts, Note!

CLOSE UP SCENE

he mentalist is hanging out with a group of


people at a party and he suggests they play a
game of word association. He states that he is

working on a way to predict the outcome of this


game based on the characteristics of the individuals
playing it.
He takes out a bunch of his business cards and hands
everyone a pen and a card. He asks that they write
down ten random words on the backs of their cards
any random words that they can think of.
Once this is all done, he gathers all the cards and
looks at all the different words before mixing them
up. Then, he hands one card to each guest at the

Page | 14

table, and turns to the first person on his left.


He asks this person to name a celebrity he would
take with to a desert island.
Based on his answer, the mentalist writes a word on
the back of another business card, which he folds up
and leaves in full view on the table.
He now asks this person to select any word on the list
he has in his hand, and to name it out loud. Then, the
next person names a word from his list that he can
associate with the first word selected. He might have
difficulty to find one seeing as the words on the cards
are totally random, but eventually he settles on a
word.
The next person then associates a word from his list
with that word just selected, and it continues until the
last person has chosen a word off his list, as an
example well use the word BOW. The mentalist
then points out that there were literally thousands of

Page | 15

possible outcomes, depending on the different words


written by each person in the beginning as well as
the random associations made.
He points to the folded card on the table and asks
someone to open it and read the word he predicted.
Written large on the card is one word BOW.

(MENTA)LISTS

(Menta)Lists is a system I created that allows the


mentalist to predict the outcome of a game of word
association.
We all know the concept of word association. One
person thinks of a word, and then the next person
says another word that can be associated with it,
and so it continues. For example: Frog Green
Apple Tree Squirrel etc.
Of course, these associations are pretty obvious. You
can also stretch the imagination for more unusual
associations, which is what makes the game fun.
I started working on the routine after a friend told me
over drinks one evening that he was very impressed
Page | 18

by an old video he saw of Derren Brown, in which he


played a word association game with some people
and correctly predicted the word that would be
named by the final player.
It has always looked like a fun routine to me,
especially the impact you can create by predicting
one word out of thousands of possibilities.
It is also one of the rare routines that could work on
stage and in strolling situations.
There are a couple of routines available that are
similar in concept (see page 67) - most of them seem
to be based on the original idea of Ned Rutledge.
However, none them matches what I wanted to
achieve. The main objective for me was that THE
PARTICIPANTS MUST USE THEIR OWN WORDS!
I set myself some other strict criteria for the effect as
well:
- The words MUST appear random and unrelated.

Page | 19

- I wanted to have all the words and cards examinable, unlike other effects where a few seconds of
inspection leaves the method blatantly obvious. I
also wanted to use only words and not phrases.
- No fishing for the word or number at which the word
is located.
- It needed to be a strict & pure word association
game - somebody thinks of a word, then the next
person thinks of a word that can be associated with
it.
- No forces to start off with - the volunteers must really
have a free choice of what to write.
After many trials and errors, I finally came up with the
methodologies you are about to read.

THE BERN EXPERIMENTS


In 1921, a Swiss psychiatrist created a test to delve deep inside his patients minds. It
would become one of the most studied and utilised tests in the world, still being used
nearly a century after its creation.
Now it is time for the mentalist to take this test to the next level, by not only interpreting
subjects subconscious thoughts, but also predicting their choices and even subliminally
forcing his own will upon them. It is time to initiate The Bern Experiments...

Included:
The Bern Experiments booklet (31 pages) containing four powerful effects in
one complete routine, plus extra presentational ideas & thoughts.
Two complete sets of specially designed cards (20 cards in total)
Original Rorschach images on the front
Numbered 1 10
Aged paper look
Inconspicuous markings on backs
Printed in high resolution on photo finish paper
Top quality lamination (125 microns GLOSS)
Credit card size to fit in your wallet

These cards are made to last, with the best quality printing and materials available.
While The Bern Experiments include four strong effects, there are numerous possible
applications for these cards. Subliminal forcing, predictions, even complete readings!
If you are a mentalist who uses psychology, hypnosis, NLP or the like as an angle; The Bern
Experiments is exactly what you need.

"This is a wonderfully simple and


direct idea that really packs a punch!"
Marc Paul

FRIENDS AND FAMILY


Phill Smith and Warren Thackeray present Friends and Family.
Friends and Family is a stage presentation that will allow you to:

Reveal which members of the audience are thinking of a friend or family


member.

Reveal specific things about an audience members friend or family


member.

Star sign, birthdate, weird character trait.

Throughout the effect, there will be a few misses - calling the friend or
family member will confirm that the misses, were in fact actually 100%
spot on!

This effect has multiple applications, pushing effects into the 21st century.
