This is Transference by Mark Elsdon. A script on your phone that's always ready to go, giving ANY spectator the power to be the world's greatest mind-reader.

This is something we've had on our phones at Ellusionist for over a year, winning us countless free drinks at any bar we step foot in.

The funny moments, tension, powerful pauses and fairness are all provided for you. The only thing your audience needs to do is read it out loud.

You'll get 5 effects that use:

  • No Apps
  • No Stooges
  • No Dual Reality

... and can be performed with a borrowed, shuffled deck.

If you know Mark Elsdon's magic & mentalism you'll know that the methods are always simple to do, the effects are always hard-hitting and the presentations are always laced with humour and totally deceptive.

The best thing is that Transference is 100% heckler-proof and as a series of PDFs, it is guaranteed to work on both Android and iPhone.

PRIME - The OG. Prime is the trick that fooled Ellusionist founder Brad Christian on an NYC shoot last year with his own deck. This is the one you'll be out performing immediately after downloading it. You can thank us for all the free drinks later.

EXTRA - Going one step further than 'Prime', Extra allows the spectator to cut to the card that you officially cut to. This is THE one effect Mark uses to fool magicians if they've already learned his original method.

RAINBOW - Your spectator tells you to select a card at random to match their card. One is a 3, the other is a Queen. Massive fail... not quite. When the deck is turned over all the cards have different backs except the two you randomly chose together.  

ACAAN - If a magician publishes a trick and it isn't a way of finding any card at any number, was it even a trick at all? Mark Elsdon proves that to be true by turning Transference into an ACAAN that the spectator will actually have fun watching. Harsh… but true.

DOUBLE - As a doubling-up on the original ‘Prime’ presentation of Transference, not only does the spectator find your card, but you also find theirs. This uses a special gimmick that you definitely already own


Last January we released 21st Century Canasta by Mark Elsdon. On set, he shared the secret to Transference with us and it immediately became a trick our entire team had to have.

By working in the magic industry, it’s always nice to have a few things to perform that nobody has ever seen before.  This is my favourite one.

Often when magicians perform, it's all about 'me me me'. Look how clever/powerful/amazing I am. It's not often the joy and euphoria is given to your audience, making them the star of the show.

What you'll find performing Transference, is this opportunity pulls a shy participant out of their shell, it puts a heckler under a spotlight that you can control and it gives a true lover of magic chance to live out one of their dreams.

Not to mention, we’ve used it to score free drinks at every social outing we’ve had across the globe for the last year. A line LITERALLY exists in the script to make that happen should you require a beverage of sorts.

With no instant stooging and no dual reality it's one of the only tricks in magic where the person doing the effect is just as fooled as their audience.

It even fooled Ellusionist founder Brad Christian, whose dealt in secrets for almost 2 decades.

If that's not a seal of approval, I don't know what is.

Clear instructions for a clever effect

A gem of an effect, clearly explained.

Daniel Bowie Soriano
This has now become my staple

This has now become my go to effects whenever someone hands me their own deck of cards.

Extremely fun to perform, and the way the effect is presented makes it easier for you to build that connection with the spectator.

Mind-blowing mentalism

If the best magic is that which occurs in the hands of the spectator, this must be the best type of mentalism since it involves the spectator participating as if they were the mentalist.

Thien Nguyen
The effect is soooooo goooood

I still not perform it yet but the effect is so good and easy to learn. Love it so much. With the discount price, it’s a must-have trick!

Jackie McClements
Packs small, fills a hall.

If you like Limelight you’ll love Transference. So simple in execution and so killer in effect. Another first class spectator as magician effect from Mark Elsdon, which gets a huge reaction, a few good laughs and a very possible free drink. If you’re fancy a change from the standard Transference then they’re four variations offered here as well. Real value for money.

Great effect!

This really is a great effect to have in your arsenal. Participants seem to get a kick out of being the magician, and I get a kick out of the way the scripts are written like an old dime store magic book.

Jay Jennings
Fun, Easy, Mystifying—Pick Any Three!

This is a cool routine you’ll always have with you (because we don’t go anywhere without a phone and a deck of cards) that’s both “WTF?!” and LOL! Get it and the next time someone says, “Show us something” you’ll be set!
