Think A Drink is another great variation of Fortune Sticks. I love the quality of the cards. Excellent creation John !

I thought Think a Drink was inspired by Bird Watcher?

Victor is correct.

Think a Drink is a card based version of Fortune Sticks that John B told me could be done.

Bird Brain is based on Dream Psycometry (Aged Cards Routine). It was previously called Bird Watcher Too because I used graphics from Bird Watcher in the beginning.

Ok thank you Victor and John for the clarification!

I really thought that Bird Brian was inspired by Bird Watcher, but that goes only for the pictures. Only recently I obtained the Dream Psychometry, the reissued version.

I may be in the minority here concerning this effect but I never found it to be all that exciting. In the past, there have been many effects similar to this one and I prefer some of those to Fortune Sticks.

Please don’t get me wrong! It’s not bad but not a big deal to me personally.

Interesting that Tenyo re-released it this year. I guess lots of people like it much better than I do...

One of the most astonishing and practical trick principles for me - I like it very much
Does not look like a toy and can be carried everywhere and is always ready to be shown
But what doesn't fit is the cheap plastic bag. The Tenyo Elite version is a worthy improvement

Personally, I do not find Fortune Sticks so interesting, it's almost impossible to see them on the sides in bad light, so it's not 100% safe and therefore not usable for me if I can not rely on the props 100%. The quality of the material is good and great processed but unfortunately only with me a 2/10

I agree with you Christian! I have never been a big fan of this Tenyo release.

It’s interesting that Tenyo released this for a second time.

Instead of just divining the object I really find the fortune telling part very engaging to the audience.

I presented it as I have some modern praying sticks and will be able to tell your fortune for the next month. This is always interesting especially when performing for a group. Rating this a 8/10

It's a very nice effect and has the advantage that a lot of people are very interested in any kind of fortune telling, so using that angle could draw a lot of people in. I don't own it, but I'm slightly concerned about the amount of instructions you need to get the volunteer to follow, as I find some people have a lot of trouble following anything complex.
