DVD played arenít going out I infact bought a brand new portable player only last week .
I also even bought a brand new video dvd / combo player too that also takes usb sticks as well only 6 months ago .
Record players and all these sort of devices are actually coming back so as much as I love Richards magic effects I cannot agree with his reasoning on why to change to this format of tutorials Gaz 🙂

The demonstration gives a precise description of the effect because there are many ways to execute the routine. As part of the Any card project, Richard Sanders explains 3 presentations tested by the audience ranging from simple for 1 to 2 spectators to a bold and powerful approach.

Nothing revolutionary, but we must recognize that Richard Sanders does not lack talent to create very commercial tricks.

Now that I performed this a bunch I can say it kills in the real world, just as you would expect.

As others have mentioned, this will be the clear successor to the Invisible and Brainwave decks for professionals.
As a stand alone effect, it's never something that I would do. It's too much trouble to try to motivate it in a way
that makes sense and is in keeping with the type of magic that I perform however the effect is so strong and
the execution so buttery smooth that I will always keep this with me for emergencies. Its pretty *** close
to a perfect inexplicable miracle. Richard - Please release five more effects! Your taste in commercial magic is so good!

Iíve been doing this for a little while now. I absolutely love when the spectator names an Ace. Talk about double whammy time. What Iíve started doing, if the first spec names an Ace, I look to someone else in the audience and ask them, ďwhile they were envisioning their favorite card, you were probably imagining one also, what card did you see in your minds eye?Ē

More reviews coming in for Any Card:
Here's another review I found on Reddit:

"Yo everyone!
I recently picked up Any Card by Richard Sanders.
I didn't see anyone talking about it so I thought I'd share my two cents.

If any of you have ever purchased a SandersFX product, you already know you're getting a complete package and then some!
Any Card is a card system, that once you understand how it works, will allow you to instantly have any named card appear on the back of four aces.
It's also incredibly easy to use! No math or thinking required.

You receive a deck of cards that have been prepared and are almost ready to go. They just need a... finishing touch, so to speak.
Sanders also talks about the way that the cards are prepared that will change the way you prepare cards like this.

You can use this for way more than just predicting a thought of card. You could use this system to predict almost anything if you applied the thinking to it.

It's 100% worth every penny. I can't recommend it enough.

5/5 stars."

Hereís my official review for Any Card By Richard Sanders.

Any card is a brilliant effect, the effect works as described. The video is in depth and thorough. Richard really explains everything well. People have asked, is this any better than invisible deck? My answer is no. However, it also isnít any less impressive than invisible deck. To me, they are equal impressive. If I only have 2 seconds to show something, Iíll go with invisible deck. But if I have a min or two, Iíll do any card. As a magician, I like any card better. Itís fun to do and play with. I give it 8/10

After reading your review when it came to your official "score" I have to admit that I was surprised you only gave it an 8/10. I was expecting at least a 9 and probably a 10.
Personally, I would give it a 9.8. But we're all entitled to our opinions.

Re: comparing ID to AC, although I suppose ID could be performed in less time than AC I don't think it is typically performed that quickly. If I only had 2 seconds as in your example I wouldn't do either effect but something very quick and flashy. I also like Any Card better than ID but it is almost impossible to quantify how much of that is due to AC simply being the new kid on the block. No doubt ID is an incredible effect and will probably still be selling well decades from now.

But I honestly do think AC has a more surprising and startling ending, and it is an effect that truly would be impossible to recreate with even the most incredible sleight of hand. Whereas, there are versions of ID using sleight of hand, or as Richard points out, spectators may believe you somehow just flipped over their card very quickly. Sometimes people will come up with the strangest ideas.

Also, one big advantage AC has over ID that isn't mentioned much, is that AC just makes a lot more sense to introduce a different deck if you have already been performing some card effects, and also makes more sense to put it away and bring out another deck if you wish to continue with card effects afterwards. It's not that these things cannot be done with ID, but IMO AC seems more logical if you do either of these and creates less suspicion.

Kudos to Richard for taking something that was right under all of our noses to discover and bringing it to fruition.

I've been messing with AC now for a few days. It seems to be everything it's supposed to be. The evolution/combination of ID and BW is frankly brilliant! I'm about to go about entertaining people but I have a tough time picking out a proper presentation out of the group. Luckily there are many to choose from! Thanks Richard, highly recommended!

I canít add much to what has already been said. Another solid Sanders effect. Very well thought out and taught. Now weíve just got to figure out how to get Richard to release more material.

I haven't got this... yet..... but just thought that if the reveal cards were jokers and not aces, then then presentation could say you've reversed four cards that perfectly match their value selected, and when revealed you explain that the jokers are wild! Then do the actual reveal...

That is VERY smart... I would love to hear Richard's thoughts on that, 'cause it seems like a real improvement to me in the internal logic of the presentation... version 2.0 with Jokers instead of Aces?

Not sure using the jokers is personally my cup of tea, but the thought occurred to me that you could even simplify it further by using only 2 jokers (the number typically found in a deck) and explain that you have reversed 2 cards and one of the cards will match the value and the other will match the suit, so together they will spell out what the selected card is. Then do the the ol' jokers are wild gag and finally show that you weren't kidding, the selected card really is spelled out because one of the jokers has the value written on its back and the other has the suit.

Spreading through and showing joker after joker might get a little tiresome since it's essentially the same gag 4 times in a row so I think showing just 2 might be better and keep things moving along.
