Hey all,

Seen Chris Ramsay do a great looking ACAAN over on his channel. I started researching the effect and nearly every review I found on here had negative reviews, not a worker, false advertising, not practical etc etc

So my question is, what one is the holy grail that is actually a worker, that has happy magi all round? Or does such an effect exist?

The acaan from Asi Wind. (you have to know a memorized deck and even then it is not so easy ...).

and

mine (that I do not give away - also with a memorized deck of course)

There is no holy grail of anything.

There are a lot of grails of everything but no holy. No one has stopped releasing the same effect over and over. It makes it fun to research and buy. 😂

I like Shaun. I have his fun book test. The first vid looked like he cornered that poor girl in a closet or something. haha

To save some of you the time I spent searching, it's unclear if the routine from Darko is available or not. Here's a previous thread where it's discussed a bit and some say it's available as a German DVD but there were never any links for confirmation.

And here's the link to Shawn's.

And here are links to Asi's routine in his book.

There also used to be a video available, but it appears to be out of print and out of stock everywhere.

Shawn Farquahrs H.G. Effect is very good and basically simple and it is a true ungimmicked ACAAN - but to perform it fluently takes a lot of practice..... It just appears to be easy but it isn't - at least for me...

Marcelo Insula (Tango Magic) has some good ideas and ACAAN variations in his at the table lecture. He kind of collects all sorts of ACAAN´s .

I second Asi Wind’s version if you’re using a memorized deck. I also have had great success with Barrie Richardson’s which I believe is in Theatre of the mind vol. 2. It uses any deck and is impromptu.

John Born's one (Meant to Be) is excellent. Similar (and anterior) to Asi Wind's ACAAN.

And also mine, MirACAAN,, hich is a systematisation of the Berglas effect.

Asi Wind's AACAAN is really good. You have to know Mnemonica and do a few calculations but it looks very clean.

As an amateur, I find it also nice to simply use a reversed Svengali deck. Easy and very convincing .

Versions I know of are available from Brenton Braun or a nice one is taught by Magix Balay in his Penguin Lecture. He has two phases, the first phase would be the ACCAN phase, in the second phase the spectator finds the card by elimination of piles. It is so clean and it appears to be an ACCAN. You just need an deck switch.

Of course it is not the holy grail for the pro´s, it is just a gimmicked deck but it barely needs practice to perform it. Therefore it is the holy grail for me Smile
