Exactly! It is a principle.

So to those that have this, is this using a different principle?

Bill08 you are a 100% correct that R&S is a principle and stating no R&S is involved probably misleads some .
It doesn’t mislead me because I am fully aware that when ads say this what they really mean is the traditional R&S spray is not used .
I only have to see the effect or have it described to me and I realise there is no possible other method so I am cool with all that .
I will probably pick this up and once it wears out apply my own variant of R&S to it unless it’s something so new and ground breaking , which I doubt .
Nonetheless it looks a great use of it , two massive thumbs up to Richard on this release Gaz 🙂

Rowdymagi5 I don’t have this but I can tell you it’s 100% what you Bill08 and myself ( plus many others ) would consider the same principle ie a form of R&S Gaz 🙂
Ps Its a great routine and premise for it though 👍👍

Perhaps it’s DSST?

Ordered! I really liked the idea of this. And lets be honest, its Richard...He has put out some of the coolest effects ever, and they are road tested. That's not just lip service either (I tested this out on my three year old daughter and the gimmick flew right by her! Was I supposed to say that out loud?). Looking forward to getting my deck.

I’m not really bothered what r&s principal is involved
It works and I’m getting great reactions from my audience

That’s what counts to me and a great release from Mr Sanders

Am I the first to point out that this is VERY similar to Omen by Chris Congreave, which came out over a year ago. I prefer Omen to Any Card because there is an additional moment of magic where you predict a "free" selection. Then, for the finale, reveal the named card.

Yes you are the first one. I don't see much similarity except for maybe slightly in the method.

Meh...

Hey Guys,

I'm familiar with Chris's effect as it was released while I was putting the finishing touches on the release of Any Card.
I like his effect.
However, personally, I prefer a much more direct approach to my magic.
I am not a huge fan of mixing a few different effects into one effect.
The more direct and simple the effect, the stronger the reaction.

Any Card is undeniable, they think of a card and BOOM it's printed on the 4 Aces.

One presentation that I didn't even touch upon here on the Café yet (however it's discussed in detail on the project) is this...
You hand the deck to someone to hold.
You have one person name a 4 of a kind and another person name any playing card.
You spread through the deck and the 4 of a kind that they just named are all face up in the pack....AND...the card that was just named is written on the back of the 4 of a kind...BOOM!
This is a slightly bolder handling (one of many on the project) but one that is easy to do and KILLS!!!

I am starting to get a bunch of reactions to Any Card from people that own it.

Here's a sample so far:

- "WOW, what a fantastic effect!
You are a brilliant magic creator.
Everything about the deck and effect was so well thought out!"
John Hicks

- "I know we're only half way through the year but this is my candidate for TRICK OF THE YEAR to date!"
Don Podas

-"This is a bloody killer. It's worth every penny and more. Well done cannot praise you enough!
Simon O'neil

I hope that helps...now where's my coffee!

Have a great week!

Steven, actually you are NOT the first to mention the similarity to Omen. It was mentioned way back on page 2 by myself and someone else.

I really like Omen a lot. It is one of my favorite gaff deck effects. But I am in the same mindset as Richard and I think I do prefer Any Card because of the straightforward simplicity of it. Plus, with Omen you have to carry around some extra cards and I have had those cards get bent up twice and have had to replace them. Not a big deal at all and I will certainly continue to perform Omen but it will probably be replaced by Any Card for the most part.

Plus, I don't really like performing Omen one on one (although you can do it) but I think it is better suited to 2 or more. Whereas, Any Card can play perfectly one on one and also to 2 or more using the routine Richard mentioned above.

I want to "plug" one more thing that I think Sanders gets right... Fair pricing on refills and multiples. For the hobbyist, that's not a big deal, but if you're working and an effect makes it into your regular set list, it's a big deal. To me, it's a real sign of fair dealing.

How much are replacement decks after you’ve purchased the original video and deck?

He doesn't have anything listed on his site. Heck he doesn't even have the effect up yet. But for other effects he's done, he's got fair bundles.

Videoman, you did point out the similarity on page 2 -- my bad!!

Jan, agreed the method is different, but my point was that the effect is quite similar.

Richard, et.al. I agree that Any Card takes a more direct route than Omen and has the additional advantage that everything is contained in the deck itself. These are huge pluses in its favor and I wasn't suggesting, by any stretch, that Any Card was not a worthwhile investment.

Wishing you every success on this release, Richard!

I would also be interested in refill decks. Already been giving this a beating out on the streets. It’s a real worker!

Received this today. In answer to your 'question', pegasus, the "system" (as Sanders calls it) does not use dsst. The cards handle beautifully, with no worry of exposing anything. The aces can, indeed, be handled freely as Sanders says. I have now written on the cards and am waiting for them to dry. This is frickin' BRILLIANT, and may eclipse 'Powerball 60' as my favorite Sanders effect.
