Well, I have purchased this effect. Here is my quick review:

Presentation: you get a 10 pages pdf file + extra things (pictures) to do the effect, in which everything is explained clearly. There are pictures included in the text to make the text easier to follow. Credits are present so it's a good thing, although I would have added Jay Sankey.

Method: the method is quite nice, and the use of the gimmick is nicely justified, the spectator won't realize anything. The choice of card and number really appear to be freely chosen, and most spectators won't realize their choice was not free (but I guess that some of them will realize the method if they try to "get" you on a particuliar point: I cannot enter into detail without exposing, so I stay quite vague). The best thing after all is that you really never touch the deck and you can focus on your presentation, which is great!

I could use it in future, altough I am not sure about that because other methods involving only one deck and (really) freely chosen card/number are better (it's only my opinion of course).

But for 12€ you can obviously get it if you are a ACAAN fan Smile

Overall rating: 7/10, great thinking Alan Smile


You first mention there are extra things to make the trick work, which you said were ppictures. the a few sentences later you say the ebook includes pictures to help you learn. Don't deny the fact that you had previously mentioned what I just siad a few posts ago. Also I would appreciate it if you wouldnt blame me for something that I didn't do. Saying "It's a picture" isn't revealing the effect. They still have no clue what the picture is of, how to use it, etc.

Exactly. And also there is another "something" to have for the effect to work Smile
Tested it today for magic friends, unexpected great reactions, very impromptu !

My simple yes or no question remains unanswered.

Will I have to go buy "something" from a magic store, or will it be more easily acquirable?

I don't need to know what it is or how the effect is done. I just want to know if it's something that would be lying around a typical household! I'm very interested in this, as I've never done an acaan before!

Yes it is something you should normally at home if you perform magic (even occasionaly). But if you have never done ACAAN before, there are many other methods that would be more appropriate than this one, with no gimmick at all. Pm me if you want some ideas or references. But still, Alan Rorrison ADACAN is a good ACAAN if you want to take a plunge into it Smile

I'm kinda curious. I like a lot of Alan's thinking, and I really like the acaan plot, so this obviously has me interested.
It's amazing, people will criticize you for "biting the hand that feeds you," while they're busy praising the hand that beats them.

"You may say I'm a dreamer, but I'm not the only one."

I won't forget you Robert.

To those still on the fence, I've been performing this in real world situations for the past few days and like expected, it gets brilliant reactions! Every time when trying to backtrack on the effect, they mention that I went no where near the cards and that it was completely fair! It really is a wicked version of the ACAAN plot!

Must say this Rocks... Tried it out on a few people over the last few days and it went down a Storm.. Great outside the box thinking again... you won't regret buying this... even if you don't use it and you will be mad not to.... you will get a ton of Psychology and great theory inside that can only inhance your own magic and thinking..

Alan with this effect has once again taken a strong effect and cut off all the excess of usual methods to make the most simple and strong method possible. It truly seems impossible by description, but it is as good as it says.
