    Getting a prediction to reveal onto a spectator's body is not easy. Until now.

    Rich Ferguson has crafted the perfect method during his career as a magician to high society and the elite. His psychology behind the Tagged method works and has been proven effective and very easy to perform. Get ready to TAG anyone with predictions, reveals or your phone number - anything.

    This is TAGGED
    The first word that comes to mind for this DVD is BRILLIANT…

    The reason that I say Brilliant is because when your reveal is on the spectators arm without them knowing how it got there that is magical.

    What is on the DVD…? Let’s start.

    Beginning with the live performances as Rich hits the streets tagging spectators and creating magic. The live performances are a must see as they assist Rich with the instructions that he will later give and should be watched over and over to get the full effect of the DVD. You will see how he manages the spectators and builds up for the reveal. This is fantastic magic and well worth the price of the DVD.

    Now for the teaching of the material that was performed live.

    Rich is a energetic instructor who I was wondering if he was going to be hop out of his chair. Rich was also a good instructor that covered all of the details.

    Tagged – Rich goes over how to create the gimmick used to Tag someone. The gimmick is inexpensive to make and the material is easy to find at most hobby stores. He teaches several different ways to create the gimmick and goes over each detail. He also teaches how to tag someone.

    Pay attention to this part here…. Tagging someone isn’t something that you will know how to do without practicing. There is a psychology behind tagging someone that will take practice and there is a learning curve. The moves are natural and no one will suspect anything. Don’t get it today and try to tag someone tomorrow because if you mess up then you only have yourself to blame.

    Book tests

    There are several methods taught for the book test and each is taught very well. If I told you the names of the methods taught I would be giving you too many clues about how to do them. But they do work as a stand alone effect without tagging someone or you will be able to spin off your own effects for your routines with these methods.

    You can purchase your books anywhere… they aren’t gimmicked books.

    Card Forces

    There are two card forces taught but you are free to use the card force that you are comfortable with. Now after the card forces are taught Rich shows a different side of himself. He also goes over some ideas for performing Tagged as an ending for an ACR. Now I don’t want to spoil what he teaches but it is brilliant and bold.

    Rich also goes over audience management and reveals. Now this is the most important part of the DVD. How to manage the spectators so that the reveals are slowly built up so that they are amazed and not just shown the reveal. This material is something that needs audience management and Rich covers different problems that he has encountered over the years and explains some audience management skills that will assist you in creating a magical moment for them.

    The audience management part is so important and I found myself watching over and over then watching the live performances just to see he manage the spectators. I highly recommend doing that as it will assist in teaching you how to manage the spectators and how to perform Tagged.

    Well worth the money.
    For those who believe, no proof is necessary. For those who don't believe, no proof is possible.

    When you say card forces do you mean like the riffle force or the classic force or do you mean you forces to have someone think of a card?

    Doesn't matter... any way you want. The point is that the prediction of a chosen card ends up on them. Since you are on the subject though, I happen to have a awesome effect with someone mentally and physically picking a card face down. They pull it out and it is their card. NUTS I tell you! I'll have to do another DVD really focused on this type of material as it seems like many people are ready for it. ... spectators AND performers.
