More reviews for Any Card:

Remember they can name ANY CARD and it's predicted on the back of the 4 aces!

We are nearing the end of the first run, it could take a while to re-stock...get it while you can Smile


Instant Classic!!!
I know we're only half way through the year but this is my candidate for T.O.T.Y. to date! Once in a great while a trick will be released that is just a little too strong to elaborate on. Such is the case with Any Card. A lot of card workers are going to be throwing this one in their case. It's such a powerful routine. It's either a one and done or a closer, that's it. There is extensive prep involved on this one but it is worth every minute...nothing hard, just writing on cards. A lot of thought went into this deck. Richard the Great has done it again! You just might want to pick this one up!...
Don Podlas

Best trick of the year!
Better than the invisible deck. Will become a classic. Highest recommendation!
Robert Leo

This is a awesome effect. Very clever and very amazing. easy to do, great online instructions, very in depth training on every aspect of the routine. I’m very happy with it
Jeffrey Haddock

Killer trick!!
I saw this trick in my local magic shop, and when I saw the name "Richard Sanders" on it, I knew I had to buy it. I watched the tutorial, and I was performing it the same day. He makes it very easy to understand, and for those people complaining that it doesn't come fully "assembled", there's a good reason for that (it's in the tutorial video). It's such a powerful trick, and I highly recommend it to anyone!

I like this more than the ID. So much easier to use than the ID deck as well.

I absolutely agree with RNK.

A couple other reasons that this effect is ahead of the ID IMO are...

The magician in trouble syndrome. They initially think you have missed and they let down their guard so the finale is totally unexpected and it hits even harder.

Using cards from a different deck (with writing on the back no less) eliminates any thought of sleight of hand or secretly flipping over a card as with ID. Plus, having writing on the backs is such a complete surprise that they never see coming.

At the end the deck is already put away and you can toss the 4 cards down and they can inspect them as much as they like. This may not seem like a big deal but I just love tossing the cards down on the table right in front of someone almost asking them to check them out without having to actually say anything. Much better way to end the effect as opposed to ID where you are quickly putting the deck back in it's case and putting it away. That just seems so cozy that I think many people are wondering about some kind of "trick deck" even though they almost never say it.

Something that doesn't get mentioned much is spectators being able to continue talking about an effect after it is over. And I'm not only referring to talking amongst themselves but even while you are still there. I like that you can keep the conversation going after the end of Any Card whereas with ID I always feel like I have to wrap things up or change the subject. Because there is just not that much for anyone to say after ID except "Wow, how did do you that?" And that's fine, nothing wrong with that at all. But the conversation usually ends there. But with Any Card they can say "Oh Man, I was sure you messed it up but then you had it written on the backs?" This usually prompts a comment from another spectator and the remarks can even keep going on. It's just getting the conversational ball rolling in the first place.

Probably not explaining my point very well but I always like when you can give them more to talk about because I think it creates a feeling in them that they realize that they really liked what you did. It allows them to savor the moment and helps them remember you.

I do agree with the above as this is a fantastic routine that offers more than ID .
I would say that Brainwave eliminates any thoughts you could have flipped the card as well though .
This is brilliant though and has arguably overtaken what was arguably the best card effect ever imo Gaz 🙂

This has to be the Best Trick of the Year. I think you have hit it Mr.Sanders. I might be over stepping a bit but my hunch is probably right on.

I think you are correct. The easiness of execution along with the reveal is so good. I would think has to be at least in the final group of the Best Trick of the year. Though, the year is not over yet!

Wow, thanks so much for such awesome comments about Any Card.
I gotta admit that I'm pretty biased but it means so much more when fellow magicians, such as yourselves, feel the same way.

Again guys...thanks so much for taking the time to let me and others know your thoughts about Any Card!!!!!!!!!!!!!! (okay I think that's enough exclamation marks for now) !!!!! (sorry had to do it)

This is an email I received from Eric Leclerc from Brain Games fame:

Any Card is by far my new favorite card trick to perform. I seriously bring it with me everywhere I go now. I haven’t carried a one-trick deck on me for years BUT your wonderful new creation is totally worth it.

The reactions it gets are absolute amazement. EVERY SINGLE TIME. As the spectators turn over their 4 aces, I get as giddy as them at the reveal.

You’ve built a trick with an automatic engaging presentation. There’s comedy, there’s failure, and then when you have them right where you want em, BAM! An amazing climax. They never see it coming!

Seriously, how do you come up with absolute real world workers time and time again? You really are a gift to the magic community, and so is this trick. Thanks for sharing with all of us man!

Any Card and Extreme Burn are the 2 best go to effects that absolutely kill and never disappoint. To use EB for so many years is a testament to its entertainment value. I am confident AC will be seated next to EB for many years as well.

I had my doubts about this effect for some unknown reason, but watching that doubly whammy being performed I’m a convert.
It’s a killer!

Thanks Rizzo Smile
Much appreciated my friend.
I do my best to produce real world killers, not pipe dreams that many effects seem to be based on nowadays!

Thanks Gaz Lawrence!!!
I really appreciate your awesome comments my friend!!!!!
I want my customers to feel great about any effect that they purchase from me because that's how I want to feel buying an effect from someone else.

Hi TheGreatRaymondo, Yes the double Whammy presentation is the way to go on this.
It packs the most punch as you predict the 4 of a kind they are thinking of and then the knock out punch where their randomly THOUGHT OF CARD is written on the back of those aces....BOOM...game over!
Thanks so much for your input my friend.

Is anyone doing this as a mentalism theme?

I’ve been doing this a lot lately. I get audible gasps along with some expletives, because people just can’t help themselves. The slow reveal of the final card is a jaw dropper every ***ed time. Thank you, Richard. This is real magic.

I didn’t notice it in the video and forgive me if it’s already been posted but was it ever revealed what the cards are “treated” with in case we ever need to make up a new deck? Or just use the handy dull coat for any refills?
