Hi guys.

So the other day I was in "Latest and Greatest" and noticed there was a 'buzz' over Val Lewis' "AOK". Not being familiar with it, I thought "hey, why not?" So I took a walk with a few button clicks and moments later, I had the thing. My impression? Great thinking. Straight forward. Real nice and for a decent price. So why all the "tinkering" from everybody? I thought "I could do this without the required moves, right?" Two minutes later, I have this:

Same idea: spec's finish their drawings, then they collect them and mix them up and drop them face down on the stack.

Now pay attention to these details - they're important. Smile

1 - I NEVER touch the stack of cards after I give each spec. a card to write on. They are simply given a business card each, and I set the rest of the stack on the table after that without EVER touching it again. EVER.

2 - I NEVER touch the cards the specs. write on again after I give them each one. When I say NEVER, I mean NEVER. They write their drawings down, mix them up and drop them down. I NEVER, ever TOUCH them after I initially give them each one.

As soon as they've done that, I can IMMEDIATELY reveal each person's word, drawing, whatever. I can do that verbally or by writing it on a pad, it doesn't matter and the choice is entirely up to the performer.

Things to note:

No p!@ks

No forces

No Imps

Cards are ungaffed as are writing instruments

No mirrors or partners, dual reality, or pre-show.

Everything is completely out of my hands the moment the spec's receive a card each to write on. After that, neither their cards or the rest of cards are touched by me. EVER.

Reveal is immediate (if desired) and can be revealed in any fashion you choose

A beginner can even do this 5 mins after learning it, and it will fool even seasoned guys very badly. The public doesn't even stand a chance.

Every single detail I gave above is 100% true with absolutely zero smoke.

So the question is: if I decide to market this in a limited run, who'd be interested? Smile

Hi Sudo,

Will owning AOK be a pre condition?
There is no better freedom than choice and no better choice than freedom.

No. Owning AOK won't matter as it has nothing to do with AOK other than it gave me an idea. That's all.

They only thing they have in common is that people write stuff and you reveal stuff. That's it. Smile

Please note that if I do decide to let this go, it won't be free this time. Part of me wants to just keep it - I'm still heavily debating it. That's why I'm looking at interest levels.

I assume you already verified the handling is indeed 'new' (or even 'very new' although I doubt there's such thing semantically)? Smile

Then count me in.

The method is something new in the sense that it's never been used this way before. And yes, I've done a massive amount of looking into it. It's something I've been playing with for years trying to find that "twist' that nobody else has.

I'll say yes x 2. If the stuff you've shared for free is an indicator (and I'm sure it is) then this idea is probably golden. Release the data!

My thoughts exactly! If the stuff I gave away (like Eclipse) was free, then that should be a good indication of how good this is! I've only shared it with one other, whose immediate response was OH. MY. GOSH!!! Smile

Very simple and direct.

Sudo be like : I have an Acaan. It uses a new principle and it's basically self working. It's seriously as clean as - name a card, name a number, and the spectator counts down to the number. No memory work, no sleights, no stooges. Deck can be shuffled. Any deck can be used. Completely hands off.

Anybody interested? Smile

Hilarious...but not entirely off by too much! Smile

Now that I read the name of the topic - I have to laugh - "Very New." Giggles. It's late.

After recently seeing some of Sudo's other work I am most certainly in for this.
