Love BBM but this is twice the price of the download. Is the made up deck all that's different?

The download isn't available any more and it comes with the deck and DVD, so I think that's a fair price for the added value.

Ah ok. I somehow found it on Cameron's website but when I tried to add to cart it doesn't work. Looks like a great effect!

Hey, guys! Yes, I originally sold this as a download. But I have a new touch on the handling, you get the deck all made up and high production value. This is one of my favorite openers! Will also be available on my site soon!

After watching the trailer a second time, I figured out what was going on and made up a deck... it works fantastic! This is such a winner. Its rare that a hybrid effect (ACAAN / Brainwave / Prediction) can be constructed so it plays out smoothly and logically, but this one does it beautifully.

I still placed a preorder for the new DVD to support Cameron's great thinking here and to learn all the extra subtleties, but this is definitely going to be a fun one to perform.

One very minor update I made was to write the prediction text in blue, with "that card" in red, and "that number" in black. It helps to emphasize the gag, but more so further justifies the brainwave and prediction aspects of the reveal. Very small touch, but I do think it adds to the cohesiveness of the effect.

Also, Scott Creasey recently released an identical effect with a similar method but I have to say that Cameron's version is far superior and more deceptive.

Liam Montier done this to me at Blackpool and I am a big fan of his but I really was underwhelmed with this . The restriction in number immediately killed it for me sorry just know lots of better effects than this was hoping for much more .

Doesn't even get the card right just the number , also in various demos he starts face up or sometimes face down its so transparent and to top it all its the worst false cut in the world . It's not great trust me on this .

Not really sure I understand what you are saying but I will address one thing here (and I go over this on the DVD).

The restricted number choice keeps the counting from becoming tedious. Because no card has been selected prior to them choosing the number, there's no suspense when dealing. Therefore a high number is just boring as all get out.

Also, I think magicians are far more concerned about number restrictions than lay people. No one knows what's coming. So who cares?

And, I'm sporty, but the Ose cut is a terrific false cut. Many pros use it. Works a treat for laymen.

Cameron, in Lewis Jones' book "Persona" he does a tabled false cut called, the castlemaine control. If you the chance check it out I think you'll like it.

I don't understand why state a restriction in number during the performance ( ie : name a number BETWEEN 5 - 20 ) ...

In my experience , if I were to ask anyone to name a small number , they'll go for a digit between 0 - 14 , if they name something lower then 5 ask him to name another number and add these up . I feel it's fairer this way as there's " no restrictions placed " as far as the spectator is aware of . I mean he won't be asking at the end of the performance " why did you specifically asked me to name a small number " isn't it ?
" Reality is merely an illusion, albeit a very persistent one " ...

Great effect Cameron. Clever thinking as usual. Cameron's genius is in making difficult effects more practical and attainable. If you want to do a no-restrictions ACAAN they are out there but many will find them impractical for their skill level and performance situations.

Yes maybe I was over hasty but I just can't see how a choice of 14 or 15 numbers has any any correlation or comparison with a 1 in 52 Acaan number it's so far removed . However it's not Cameron who is saying that anyway so probably a great little extra trick but don't seem massively strong IMO .

I wish this was available as a download. Then it would have been affordable for me.

I specifically say, "Gove me a number. Too low and it's too easy. Too high and it's too boring. So somewhere between 5 and 20 is perfect." Justifies everything nicely and ITS TRUE! Who the heck wants to count 30 cards without suspense. Remember, no card has been chosen yet so there is no inherent drama in the counting.
