"With IceBreaker, Francis has created an absolute killer! Not only is this a hugely entertaining piece of mentalism, but it is also incredibly deceptive yet easy to perform. Great job Francis!"

Become an instant expert in lie detection and reveal personal pieces of information about your spectators.
IceBreaker is based on a classic get-to-know-you activity: players tell two lies and one truth about themselves. The object of the game is to determine which statement is correct.
The effect is comprised of 88 poker-size cards having different sentences on the face.
For example: "I have been to New York", "I have a tribal tattoo", "I don't like math", "I can play guitar", "I am a Libra", "My favorite color is blue" ...
During the performance, your spectators are asked to select a card relating to a personal fact that is true for them. They then read out their selection amongst a list of other cards in the pack, in any order they wish. You instantly know their true statement!
