For those that purchased Any Card I wanted to let you know that I added a few new videos into the training area, including a live performance at Magic Live.

Have a great day,

Rich

That was a very funny presentation. Thanks for adding the footage from magic live. It was something that it was Eric Meade that you were performing for and you didn't know it at the time.
Very funny.

This is by far the best trick I have seen for the thought of card reveal. I initially thought it was similar to OMEN by Chris Congreave but boy was I wrong. the Method was so different and clever and fast that its hard to beat it. I was so impressed, Bought it and then saw Richard perform this at magic live and got great reactions. I came back and ordered 2 more replacements decks as I am sure I would want those in my next life.

I have a little question please. I just got this and have done it a few times and it's been great. Still working on the presentation that fits me and I'm quite excited to see how it goes.

My question is this....Is there a way that by putting the cards into the spectators hands and they bend the cards in handling them, that it could effect the way the pairs split in later performances? If the cards got bent would it effect they way they handle as pairs? I hope my question is clear. For example having the cards being bent during tiny plunger can play havoc with the method if you're not careful.

All the best,

Al

I would say it definitely could ruin the deck if the cards got bent. I’m sure a Richard even recommends keeping them in a card clip

You might want to rethink having spectators handle the cards. Smile

You are referring to placing just the 4 aces into a specs hands, correct?

I let them handle them and unless they purposely try to bend them they are not likely to get bent in any significant way.

I will often have the spec hold out both hands palm up and deal the 4 aces face up into their hands (2 in each hand) and then slowly turn over each card one by one and set each one back in their hands face down so the magic seems to happen in their hands. I then leave them there for a moment and if they care to check them out a bit they can.

It's easy to replace them so not a big deal if they were to occasionally get bent anyway.

I bought this and think it is great. I do this with a presentation which suggests I can influence mentally the spectators choice of cards. I tell them that I have placed four aces up in the deck and show them the first red ace and a second ace which is about 10 cards into the deck. No one remembers the position of the second ace.

The deck is well made and when I pull out the aces, I table the deck and then spread part of it so it looks like a sea of blue in the face of the red backed aces. No one has asked to see the deck because it is partially spread on a table.

I actually mentioned keeping the deck in a metal card case/clip . I recommend this for all the decks that use this type of principle , they last so much longer and then never let you down in performance . Ps Richard Sanders the legend then echoed my post Gaz 🙂

Thanks for the interesting comments about what may happen if the cards got bent by accident when the spectator handling them. Videoman says it's easy to replace the cards and no big deal. That may be if you live close by to where you can get them, but for folks like me who live on the other side of the world, and our currency is struggling big time, it's not a cheap option at all. Then Richard says they cards don't use roughing spray, so from that I speculated that if a few of the cards got bent and were perhaps not adhering very well in pairs, there could be issues and I'd need a new deck or at least some replacement pairs if that makes sense.
Please also note, that I'm not really a close up adult mainly card magician specialist.
ps. I'll try and get a good metal card case of clip to hold them in
Thanks again

There's not an ace in that deck is is treated. They're normal cards and can be replaced from a regular deck. So, you're handing the spectator untreated normal cards.

Yes Gaz the metal clip is a super great idea for Any Card, thanks my friend!!!
As Gaz mentioned, it keeps the deck in super pristine condition at all times.
In fact a metal clip is a great product to use for all special decks Smile

Also, as Sean mentioned above, the Aces are not treated at all. They can be replaced with Reg aces from any red backed Bicycle deck (if you need to)
I worked hard to make this possible, that is another reason why I discarded the traditional R/S principle.
I wanted the Aces to get into people's hands with no fear of putting wear and tear on the deck:)


Also thanks so much to everyone here for your awesome comments, support and help with questions.
Much appreciated guys...sincerely Smile

Bent cards do not effect the workings of any type of RnS applied cards anyway, even if the Aces were treated.

To be fair I find ( bent cards ) they do affect certain effects . Mark Elsdon’s latest effect for example is affected by his chore selling point of just this . His use of an old gimmick is not reliable using this principle with a basic over hand shuffle imho . Marks is a great effect but this principle is not needed as it’s far cleaner anyways than a K..an d.c. and magicians still use that deck today Gaz 🙂

The aces are untreated and since you said you own the effect I assumed you knew this.
If a new deck of cards is prohibitively expensive in your country and you don’t have any old decks lying around, and you don’t already own or want to buy any one way force decks...then I would suggest that you not hand out any cards if you are worried they will get bent.

However, having a spectator bend a card beyond repair I would think would be a very rare occurrence. It’s certainly never happened to me yet but of course YMMV.

Good thinking of Sanders not to have the handouts treated.

I don’t see how you can say a k d**k is cleaner. One of the proves is to very cleanly spread the deck and leave it spread to show there are no duplicates.
