Someone dug up and reposted an old article of mine on the ABC of Attraction forums and after re-reading it, I realized how important it is for anyone who goes to nightclubs or bars to pick up. If you ever wonder why doormen are such assholes, think about it. Most “PUAs”, show up week after week to the hottest nightclubs, with a bunch of male-wings and never any girls. PUAs never want to pay cover, and they don’t buy drinks for themselves or girls. If you’re going to go clubbing to pick up, consider entourage game, it adds value to yourself, the people you bring and to the club itself, so they’ll love you there. Plus it’ll get you laid a lot and that’s never a bad thing. =)
Entourage Game: written Spring 2008
I had to tell you about my first night out in London.
I just got in last night, and was totally jet lagged, but today…
was an awesome day.
I slept in till about 2:30pm which is actually pretty good, since
it’s really 7:30am Los Angeles time and headed out with AFC Adam
Lyons, whom I’m staying with. He had an interview fro Maxim
Magazine UK, and we walked around the streets photographing him
doing live demos. They had him open a girl walking on the street,
one in an office building while she was working, and a model
sitting in a pub. A total of 6 sets…which he got 6 phone numbers
from. The Maxim guys were in awe.
After a couple rounds of us playing Magic: The Gathering which he
is really good at btw, we went to the hottest Wednesday night club
in London, China White.
We arrive entourage style and had six girls waiting for us at the
front door, which allowed us to walk straight in, bypassing the
line and for free. If anyone reading this ISN’T practicing
Meta-Game and building up a huge social circle of girls and
bringing pivots to the club, you need to start…this is the future
of pick up, and the future is now.
What isn’t the future of pick up, is what we call Pick Up
1.0…(credit Asian Playboy http://www.abcofattraction.com)
which includes magic tricks…and yes, of course there was a guy
there tonight doing magic tricks. He was actually pretty good,
and had a lot of props..which also means, he wastes a lot of time
learning tricks instead of actually gaming. He spends about half
an hour entertaining one of the girls I was then with, (who I met
through social proof and the entourage) while his wing, sits down
and tries to run game on another girl in the group. I leaned back
nonchalantly and watched him do a card trick…followed by having
flames come out of his wallet upon opening, then lighting his hand
on fire and throwing it to the other palm. All very cool tricks
and very entertaining…but what I think guys are still failing to
realize is that being entertaining doesn’t get you laid. I think
he might have realized it when he tried to bounce the girls and
they responded to him,
“Sorry, but we gotta go! We’re taking Johnny back to home!”
I felt bad for him, so I gave him a business card and wrote on the
back: “Magic tricks are dead…”
A bit of Chinese food later, the four girls and I arrived here back
at Adam’s apartment. And the story goes on, I’ll keep you guys
updated on my journey to the UK.
By the way, I’m sure you’re curious what Meta-Game is, so here’s a
quick breakdown courtesy of Adam Lyons (http://www.afcadam.com)
Metagame: the idea that meeting someone isn’t just about the way
you speak to them in the interaction but rather an understanding of
the events and situations in the immediate vicinity to that
interaction and potentially proceeding it. understanding and
affecting these can be a core principle in attracting your ideal
Entourage game: also known as extreme pre-selection, this concept
involves building a life where you have a great deal of beautiful
women around you at all times, so that you are perceived as being
attractive and are therefore able to meet and attract others. A
specific branch of Metagame.
How you can use Metagame and Entourage game by Johnny Wolf
I understand that going from a guy that has a hard time even having
one hot girl in his life, to having ten-forty hot girls in your
life and taking to clubs is a hard concept to initially grasp. And
even harder, is why you could take a hot girl to a club, when you
can just take her on a day2 and try to close her then.
But, after I explain it all to you, you’ll realize how easy it
really is…and why it makes you life THAT much easier when you have
it in play. Before I explain how, I want you to hear these two
1. The Top pick up gurus and instructors out there (yes, that
includes Mystery) don’t cold approach.
2. The guys that get the most amount of lays, don’t cold approach.
I can hear you saying: “What??? Isn’t that what the game is all
about!?! Being able to go out on your own, and game a beautiful
girl you’ve never met before on your own?”
Well, the answer to that is, good pick up artists CAN cold approach
and get laid from doing so…but a smart pick up artist, realizes
that it is a lot of work, and doesn’t need to be. Getting laid is
easy, pick up is hard.
So how do you get started?
Well…the best way to do it, is go out during the weekdays, and
start collecting phone numbers of hot girls, just as friends. Your
reason for talking to them, and for getting their phone number is
because you want to invite them to your friend’s birthday party at
so-and-so nightclub. Tell them that your friend has a VIP guest
list so you’ll all get in for free, and won’t have to wait in line.
Even if they say they don’t know yet, or they’re busy, tell her that
she doesn’t have to decide now, and that you’ll just text her the
Make sure you do the proper phone close technique, where you have
her call your phone, and have her save you as a unique name she’ll
remember like “Johnny Superhero” or whatever, this way, you’re
guaranteed to have her correct number, and she’ll know who you are
when you text. Also when you save her, ask her what her full name
is so you can add her to the guest list. If you want you can save
all the girls you meet this way with a certain letter like “SC for
Social Circle” or “Z for whatever”in front of their
name or any other way you want to organize them.
What you do next is disqualify for yourself as a potential suitor
or a guy that’s hitting on her, by telling her the following:
“Okay cool, I hope to see you there, but just to warn you, when I
see you, you can’t be too hug-gy with me because my girlfriend will
be there…I’m inviting you just as a friend okay? I just wanted to
invite a lot of pretty girls along so my friend can look cool on his bday,
so make sure you invite all of your hot girlfriends along too…
but only if they’re cool…”
Do this 3-5 days a week, during the day time, or even over facebook
and myspace, and you should have a list of girls to invite out. Oh
yeah, and don’t worry about actually getting these girls in, any
promoter would LOVE you to submit a list of 20-30 girls and 3 guys.
In fact, after you do this a few times, they’ll offer you a job
as a promoter. (Credit Project: Entourage and AFC Adam Lyons)
I did this down in Miami the other week, and sarged out a random CVS
Pharmacy for an hour and collected 8 phone numbers. Later that night I showed up to the club with nine girls, all whom I just met that day. Do this a few
hours a day, and have your wings do it too, and all the sudden
you have 100 girls you can invite out. So even if only 10% of them
actually show up…they’ll all bring an average of 2 friends, which
means you have 30 girls showing up just for you.
Now here’s the tricky part…don’t game your girls. Make sure they
have fun, and use them as pivots to have other sets open like butter
and then invite everyone to go eat afterwards or party some more
at your place. Don’t hit on them still…discretely hit on the
other girls you met through this, or better yet, make it look like
they’re hitting on you. Girls in your circle will start giving you
IOIs because you are now massively pre-selected by women, non-needy,
leader of men, and are a fun chill guy to hang out with. This is
when you can isolate one of the girls and f-close her.
The 29 other girls you went out with that night become part of the
rotation, and it just keeps building every week. I guaranteed
you’ll get laid a lot more doing this than cold approaching.
* Cold Approaching is Pick Up 1.0
* Trying to get into a club with a bunch of guys is Pick Up 1.0
* Not having a social circle or female friends is Pick Up 1.0
Asian Playboy Responds:
Thanks for the excellent repost.
The ironic thing is that, while I’ve always labeled the styles as 1.0, 2.0, and 3.0 around the house and guys, I never actually defined and wrote about it for the Community and mass consumption until J-Wolf spoke about the 3 versions of Pick Up at this last 2008 PUA Summit.
Anyways, if you can find his speech about Pick Up Versions, he does get a standing ovation at the end.
But to recap…
Pick Up Version 1.0 = Indirect, canned… More concentrated on verbal skills and externals
Pick Up Version 2.0 = Direct, natural… More concentrated on nonverbal skills and improvisation
Pick Up Version 2.5 = Indirect & Direct… Enter the Ninja
Pick Up Version 3.0 = Lifestyle… This includes living a life conducive to picking up which includes but is not limited to entourage game
I generally recommend guys spend 6 months on 1.0. Then 6 months at 2.0. Another 6 months combining them (call it 2.5). And then spend the rest of your life making 3.0 happen.
Johnny Wolf Responds:
Wow that’s actually a really good article. LOL, I totally forgot I had written that…maybe I should start an archieve or something. Nah, that’s too much work.
But yup, entourage game is SICK! as in good sick….do it enough times and the club promoters will start giving you bottle service for free, since you’re bringing in so many girls, which makes it even easier to get more girls to come and hang out, it’s like a victorious-cycle. The other really great thing about it is that it FORCES you to day game, and it gives you a super easy way to phone closes a ton of girls.
One warning though. The one thing that will mess it all up is if you have any guys in the group that are leeches. You have to be extremely strict about this. Any guy that wants to be part of your entourage has to bring a minimum of 4 girls…actually scratch that, he needs to SHOW UP with a minimum of 4 girls. Let your wings know BEFORE hand that it isn’t personal, it just won’t work if he shows up alone or with other guys. Tell them not to bother to come unless they are with girls. It’s really hard work in the begining, even Adam had nights where he would be standing alone in front of the club all night in the rain, and no girls showed up. But as a good pua, he kept at it, and built it up strong. Good luck!
