I’ve been collecting Alan Warner magic since 1980 but this is the very first time I have seen one of the original painted versions of Mini-Mental which was first released fifty years ago in 1972!
Alan created this marvel first in the mini size you see on this page and a few months later in the Maxi size. In 1990 the mini version was re-released in Teak and it has been one of Alan’s biggest hits ever since. It has also inspired other craftsman to create their own versions, such as Magic Wagon and Thomas Pohle.
Mini-Mental is a beautiful looking effect with a very clever method that will please you and amaze your audience.
Effect: Here is news of another top quality item which we have recently added to our Mini-Magic range. It is a mental prediction effect so naturally we have called it … “MINI MENTAL”.
A small stand – 6 1/2″ long by 1 1/4″ wide – has four different colored blocks standing on it, each in a shallow recess. A panel on the front of the stand, numbered from one to four, indicates the positions of the blocks. The performer removes the blocks and places them on the table, then a spectator is given a free choice of any one of them, the performer placing the selected block in position number one on the stand. The spectator’s second choice goes in position number two and so on.
The performer then removes numbered panel from the stand and four colored spots are revealed/the color of each spot matching the color of the block which had been freely selected and placed above it. The performer therefore correctly predicted the order in which the spectator would place the blocks!
Definitely no force – the blocks can be placed in a different order each time the effect is performed. Entirely self-contained and easy to do.
