The Bammo Tarodiction Toolbox

Postby Bob Farmer » May 19th, 2017, 7:43 am

Available for delivery May 25th, 2017, everything a Satanic Mechanic needs.

THE BAMMO TARODICTION TOOLBOX

A New Breakthrough In Magic Methodology

“Bob Farmer's Bammo Tarodiction Toolbox is both a great trick and a genuinely new method for secretly arranging cards quickly, accurately, and right in front of the spectators' noses.”
—Matthew Field, Magic Book Author and Editor

“Within magic, no mind approaches Bob Farmer’s. Outside magic, Machiavelli came close. The evidence is presented in ‘The Bammo Tarodiction Toolbox.’”
—Stephen Minch

“… brilliant and stimulating …”
—Nick Pudar, Stackview.com

“About what you'd expect from the guy whom invented that stupid little hand trick.”
—Richard Kaufman

It’s got:

Completely new and flabbergasting effects with Tarot and Bicycle cards.

A mysterious message that Aleister Crowley, occultist and Satanist, wrote in 1947 (and then immediately thereafter slumped over dead), here finally explained.

The appearance of impossible poker hands (odds of success, one in over one trillion, three hundred billion, but you beat those odds).

A method for stacking a deck in Mnemonica or Aronson order or Stebbins order (or any order!) that takes less than two and half minutes to complete (there is no faster method).

A revolutionary new method for marking cards.

Indispensable for card guys and mentalists. Not suitable for gospel magicians. No sleights. All self-working. No thought required. No calculations required. Wide applications to many other areas. Satisfaction guaranteed or I'll apologize.

That's all I'm saying. Let's keep this exclusive.

BONUS: ALSO INCLUDES, TSUNAMI, THE LONG UNAVAILABLE GAMBLING/THINK OF A CARD MANUSCRIPT UNIVERSALLY PRAISED BY THOSE WHO PRAISE UNIVERSALLY. “... TSUNAMI, the best damn card trick since OUT OF THIS WORLD! My congratulations and admiration.”
—Dennis Marks “...(A) ... collection of unusual mental/gambling routines based on ingenious principles that some top names have raved about, and been badly fooled with .... The magician that bothers to learn ... (Tsunami) ... will have an anywhere-anytime game of Psychic Poker ... that will destroy the laymen.”—Jeff Busby, Magical Arts Journal

$35 USD. Postage outside the U.S. and Canada $10.

Available only from Bob Farmer. Email order to Bammomagic@cogeco.ca.

Payment only by Paypal. You don’t have to have a Paypal account. I’ll send you an invoice.

That’s all I’m saying. Let’s keep this exclusive.

At the risk have having the obvious pointed out, is this a DVD, booklet, book etc? I assume it's not a real tool box.

I've had some emails asking if this is just another memorized deck treatise. It is not. The Memdeck stuff is just tangential to the material. I included it because the system allows a super fast deck stacking, but 99.9% of the material has nothing to do with memorized decks or stacks, doesn't require any memorization, calculation or sleight of hand, and is essentially self-working.

Re: The Bammo Tarodiction Toolbox

Here is a simple effect made possible by the system. You can learn this in about 5 minutes. It takes no memorization, thinking, calculating or sleight of hand and is completely self-working.

EFFECT
You tell the spectator you will teach him how to cheat at cards. All he has to do is follow your actions as you deal. Since he’s a beginner, a full deck won’t be used.

THE CARDS
You show two packets of 15 cards each. Each packet is a mixture of court cards and spot cards. With 15 cards, each packet can be arranged in 1,307,674,368,000 ways (that’s over a trillion, three hundred million ways).

THE SHUFFLES
The spectator shuffles each packet (and he really shuffles and cuts each packet as much as he wants, there is no requirement that he follow any weird procedure).

The spectator picks a packet. No force. He can change his mind if he wishes.

THE CLONE
Now you tell him you want him to follow your actions as you deal and mix cards. He follows your every move. You deal a card to the table, he does also; you assemble the carda and deal again, he does so. This all happens really fast. He clones your every move.


THE REVELATIONS
You tell the spectator to deal the first five cards in his packet face up to the table. He does so. He has a marginally interesting poker hand.

He deals off the next five cards (another so-so hand) and the final five (again, not much).

You deal off your first five cards: you have a Straight Flush in order: 5, 6, 7, 8, 9.

You deal off the next five to disclose a Royal Flush in order: 10, J, Q, K, A.

You deal off the last five to show a second Royal Flush in order: 10, J, Q, K, A.

The chances of this happening by chance are 1,307,674,368,000 to 1--so, you must have cheated somehow.

You tell him that though he’s followed your every move exactly, he’s missing the criminal heart that would make him a good card cheat, so he’ll just have to try harder, perhaps he could start by doing some shoplifting.

That sounds like a PHENOMENAL and very entertaining effect, and which gets the spectator involved. It's too bad that the BTT won't be available in stores, as my shoplifting abilities eclipse even my card-cheating prowess...

I'm sending out a new addendum to all purchasers: it describes a new way of quickly stacking a deck (any stack, any order) that Mike Close has called unbelievable.

How serendipitous that I just checked in with the forum.

I just made up a deck stacked in Aronson and marked with the "learners" marks that Bob describes in his new addendum.

I shuffled the stack and (with no practice whatsoever) went from a shuffled deck to Aronson order in two minutes flat. With familiarity with the procedure, I'm sure I could easily cut that down to a minute and a half or less.

Unbelievable.

The application Mike describes is just one of the many applications for the systems I describe in The Bammo Tarodiction Toolbox. The ideas are not limited to stacked decks or memorized decks, in fact, all of the effects described do not use a full deck or a memorized deck, but the systems can be used to make those sort of setups so much easier.

As far as I can tell, these methods have never been used in magic before. These are entirely new ideas. The effects described cannot be duplicated with gaffed cards or sleight of hand. This is new.

I spoke with Mike Close yesterday. In typical Mike Close fashion, he has had several really good ideas about using the ideas in the manuscript. Keep in mind, this is a brand new principle in card magic, so there remains to be invented many applications and effects.

Here's what Harry Lorayne has to say:

"I've gone over the stuff and gotta' tell you - your thinking with Triharder is simply genius! You can use that as a quote if you like. But really - it is genius. Best - Harry."

"Triharder" is just the first effect in The Bammo Tarodiction Toolbox--and one you can learn in five minutes.

Daniel: Yes, the post office is truly unbelievable. Stuff I send to England arrives literally overnight; stuff I send to Toronto, a 3-hour drive from here, arrives---eventually.

Maybe they're opening the package and reading before sending it on.

It took me a while to get my bearings, but now I see that it is brilliant stuff. I have already received my pens from Amazon and started marking cards. I am 70 years old and still waiting for algebra to come up, but this math I can handle. Another winner. Now, hurry and finish the next one.

I just received this from Bob and have emailed him some possible ideas.

My first attempt with "learners" marks, and I sorted the deck in 1:45. To get completely fluid with this will take some practice (it's not difficult; it's just something you have to get accustomed to), but I bet I could beat 1:30 with practice.

The Good News: Bob keeps thinking about this.

The Bad News: Bob keeps thinking about this.

I received mine very quickly. I read from cover to cover already and really like the suggestions to use this for many other applications. Thanks for the great work and I look forward to the Bammo Flim-Flam Conglomeration. When is the expected release date? Just curious, because I will definitely be busy with this manuscript. Thanks again for sharing all of the nuances, places to find needed items, and addendums. Great deal!

Thanks again Bob (you mark).
