Adventures Ashore by Paul Romhany is an entertaining and topical three-phase book test WITHOUT any books! Paul Romhany has been performing this routine on cruise ships and in his mentalism show on land for several years and now offers it to the magic fraternity.
The performer explains that he loves cruising and while on ships he collects the "port guides" that the ship hands out at each port they visit. In fact, the performer brought some with him and brings out a dozen port guides and displays them to the audience.
The performer explains he will try an experiment with the port guides and places them all back in an envelope. A spectator is asked to reach in to the envelope and take out any port guide (a free choice) and look at the front page and remember any word, another spectator takes out another port guide and is asked to read any paragraph on the back page and try and visualize an image or "drawing" to do with that paragraph.
A third spectator is asked to take out any port guide and tear it in to pieces chosing one piece and look at a word on the page.
The performer is able to tell the word the first spectator is thinking, draw the object the second person is imagining and a dictionary is opened and the thought of word is the only word circled.
This routine can be performed in ANY situation from stage, platform and close-up. Paul has put together a very unique package including instructions, twelve gimmick port guides so you can perform this straight away, PLUS a CD-ROM containing the twelve PDF files of each port guide so you can perform this as often as you like.
