Video Review:



Zener cards are cards used to conduct experiments for extrasensory perception (ESP) or clairvoyance. Perceptual psychologist Karl Zener (1903–1964) designed the cards in the early 1930s for experiments conducted with his colleague, parapsychologist J. B. Rhine (1895–1980).

However, the original series of experiments at Duke University have been discredited and replication has proved elusive.

Now ESP decks like these - can be a powerful tool used by Magicians and Mentalists.

And best of all ... all of the decks in this list are MARKED!

Nice. The only trick I do with Zener cards is Ben Blau's Unfazed. I found a deck of cards with Bicycle backs that work well for me, but the damn things only have two sets of black cards. The other sets are yellow, red, and blue. Those colors just don't match the effect, in my opinion, so I have never used them. Perhaps I will find something to do with them? I purchased a set of the Royal Magic Zener cards early on, not knowing they were bridge size. Bummer.

I wouldn't mind having some "moody" cards for the effect and might check out the ESP Origins deck as a possibility. Eugene Burger used silhouette picture cards for the effect; nice idea, but I have never found any picture-type cards that tickled my senses. 

Thanks for the review,

Av
