357 (DVD and Props) by Tom Lautens and Inner Mind Productions

Written by Bernard Sim

The main routine of 357 is based on Russian Roulette but this version does not involve a gun or a bullet. The presentation is very interesting.

Included are 6 small envelopes and 12 blank cards. The principle used in the effects has been around for a long time and they are credited to Bob Fillman and Tan Hock Chuan (Singapore). The ideas for these card are interesting and you can various presentation/ routines for it. There are a total of 3 routines in the DVD. Unfortunately, you are only given 12 cards and you have to choose which routine you want to use. A single routine uses 6 cards. Once you write on the card with a marker, there is no turning back.. The routine by Tom Lautens used a different method and is Russian Roulette themed.

Overall, I think this is quite a nice mental effect which I’m sure you’ll be able to create many other routines for it.

Rating 3.5/5
