This is a HUGE let down. Not at all up to Andy Nymans usual standard (even though the method is the exact same as another effect he released).
They say in the ad copy "premium gimmicks hand picked by the creator"..... This has to be the biggest joke/ lie I've seen in a long time in the magic world. When you see what you get with the DVD you'll be left wondering just what in the hell Andy had to pick out? Laughable.
You know you've bought a bad effect when they decide to blur the gimmick DURING THE EXPLANATION because its so obvious even to a camera lens!?! They try to make the blur look artsy and hip in only the way Theory11 can, this is so the kiddies can save their disappointment until they are standing in front of a mirror.
The worst part of the DVD is when they (for ZERO reasons) bring on "Zack" and his buddy. Completely turns the DVD into a joke and ruins any tinge of credibility it had.
I have a lot of Andy Nymans work, but I'll do some serious research before going near anything the guy puts out again, especially if Theory 11 are involved. It's like he sold out, left his integrity at the door and accepted the cheque.

Wow this trick is so easy to do, I learn it in about 15 minutes and I was ready to perform. This is a quality gimmick that you can use to vanish one card from a deck, and show card one by one that is completly gone . Seriousely, the effect look more clean live that in the video . Awesome :)

To begin with the idea of this trick is good but technically speaking after you perform the trick you cannot hand over the card for the spectator to examine. If by all means you do so it would be an epic fail. The reason for the 4 star being that this trick would be great for stage magic where you say you did a prediction an it's in this envelope and that it would be rare that the spectator would want to examine anything. But if do street magic most definitely this would not be ideal because the first time i did it my spectator wanted to see the card but I couldn't give it to her as the trick would fail then. So to conclude, this trick is not clean. Nothing in that envelope and after the trick can be handed out for examination.

The trick is very powerful. However, the first one I received I returned since the glue machine didn't dispense the glue. Also the glue sticks to the inside of the envelope making the trick somewhat cumbersome. Overall, a nice illusion.

I like this effect. I'd love it though if you could comfortably hand out the selection after this effect is performed.
It's a beautiful effect when it all comes together. Random card which clearly comes from another deck of cards is selected as a prediction and the spectator happens to land on the predicted card. Gorgeous. But people love hands on with magic, and I love being able to hand things out. As of now, I'm totally not comfortable handing out the card at the end of the routine, I'm not sure I'll ever be comfortable enough to do it, and I feel that steals some of it's magic.
The method is taught quite well on the DVD. The gimmick is easily put together within a minute max. Reset is available after the trick is performed at the bat of an eye making it great for working the floor.
It's only flaw, that I can't get over, and remove a point from my review for, is that inability to finish as clean as I'd love to be able to.

I bought this from penguin 4 weeks ago, since then i have literally performed it over 45 times, to paying audiences , and this has got to be one of the best close up mentalist tricks for walk-around that i have in my repertoire.
I understand why it might have gotten a bad review about the gimmick, it is a gimmick that we all probably have had at one point and never used it this way, you will be disappointed because you wish you thought of it!
The reset is almost instant you can do it again right after performing it if you want, although i recommend using a different gimmick, you will see what i mean.
Anyway for the real performer who is out there making their living doing walk-around or close up mentalism or even magic, this is great, pure gold, if your just looking for the next best thing because you have some money to spare and it looks cool on camera, please skip this and leave it to the real workers.

First off there is already a trick that has been done by Peter Nardi if I spelled that right. So this is a rip off in more than one way. Too bad I cannot get a refund.don't waste your money. It's something that cannot be handed out in the end.
Powerful ACAAN Report this review
Verified buyer Pro Privacy ON (login to see reviewer names) on March 24th, 2013
Other the the gimmicking tool being a bit difficult to work consistently, the effect plays quite powerfully. May be the finest ACAAN on the market given the fact the spectator is the sole person to shuffle and deal the cards. Often leaves spectators speechless. Strong effect for virtually all skill levels.
Great new concept Report this review

Pure amazement a new consent of magic that I truly recommend. At first when u receive the trick it seems like you will have no success with the trick but after a good long time of practice the trick just feels right, like u can put a lot of confidence into it. It is a fabulous trick that has always amazed. WELL WORTH $20.00!!!
