TOTEM (Gimmick and Online Instructions) by Alex Ng and Henry Harrius

A devious mentalism piece that resembles REAL MIND CONTROL!

Totem is a multiple-phase mentalism routine that ends with a surprising climax. A gold-foiled coin is introduced and the spectator is asked to hold onto it. Throughout an imaginary journey with the magician, the spectator would end up with several decisions in their mind: a random number, a color, a city, a flower, and a painting. As the final surprise, the coin that the spectator held the entire time is revealed to be a poker chip that matches every single decision they made.
