Love the trick, but having some difficulties with the mental equation. Smile
May you live in interesting times.

Sorry. I mean remembering the "key numbers" and subtracting / adding it with the right number, plus the way to take the cards out from the deck. Well, maybe I'm not practicing enough...

S.H.
May you live in interesting times.

Let me just say I highly recommend this product! This is one of the best card effects I have ever come across. I perform close up brunches at the magic castle twice a month and I close every single show with this effect and it kills every single time. Spend the time to develop a fantastic presentation for it and you will get the reactions you desire. I have received numerous bookings from this effect alone. Probably the best purchase ever!

One of the best tricks I ever used and keep using.
Easy, shocking, amazing and so on.... I think one of the best acaan on the market.
If you have the old version I think there is no need to upgrade since the principle is basically the same.
The deck can be quickly examined (but not carefully examined) by spectators.
My vote on this:
9/10

I've tried quite a number of "card at any number" effects over the years and, in the end, I've kept coming back to "The Grail" as my favourite. I agree with those who say that there you don't need "Gold Edition" if you already have the Grail, however. I do the small move that exists in this trick just slightly differently from the standard method/explanation (find my own handling just a little easier and more reliable) but, either way, it always works and the move always flies by the spectators. It's easy to do and looks impossible. I keep buying new ACAAN effects (can't help myself) but, in the end, when it comes to actually performing I always seem to end back at this one!

Initially I was using Think by Shin Lim which was great but had a few cons, the Grail by Mike Rose was my next purchase and for a time was my go to effect if I was doing an CAAN, it completely solved the problems 'Think' had for me, although the simple math involved wasn't very simple for me. Recently Alakazam took out a download by John Carey (Night at the Casino) which is the next step forward I feel in this genre and very similar to what's come before, great thinking and very simple math if required. Just my 2 cents.

Thanks for the 'heads up' on "Night at the Casino", Greig. As usual, I am late to that party, but thanks to your post I downloaded and LOVE it! Great effect!!

Totally agree, my Grail has been consigned to the bottom drawer since I got hold of Night at the Casino. Simple, smart and no fiddling about

I do the Grail also. My instincts after watching John Cary's version is to download that offering too.
Without giving anything away, would any presentation be so different justifying the extra work to assimilate 'Night at the casino' into my working set? I have Grail down, no longer need to think about the workings etc...
