"When Mike sent me his idea for A card at any number I was shocked at the creative, super clean handling he had created." - Mark Mason

"Without doubt X-act is the greatest card effect since Paul Curry’s “Out of This World”. Since my return from FISM I have performed it six times. It left my magical friends stunned. Congratulations to Mike Kirby and to your input in producing such a killer effect. The only regret I have is that I did not create it. This is going straight into my act. It says a lot for it because I normally only perform my own stuff." - Charles Gaucci

"It's a Miracle!" - Doc Eason

"A devilish mechanism so infernal and diabolical, an effect so staggering,
that in earlier, more superstitious times, its operator would be consigned
to a fiery meeting with Azrael, the Grim Reaper of perdition. But it also
works as a really, really good card trick."
- Bob Farmer

"CLEAN CLEAN CLEAN!" - Joe Monti

"This is an excellent example of great thinking on the part of Mike Kirby and you.
Simple and direct. You have a winner!!!"
- Paul Green

"I will Take two" - Christian Engblom

"A strong, very clean effect for laymen, an ingenious technique for wizards in the background, so really everyone has fun. Highly Recommended!" - Stefan Olschewski (German Magic Circle Magazine)

The buzz about this trick is phenomenal.

X-act is direct, killer magic that you will love to perform. You will love the method almost as much as the reactions you will get, when you perform X-act.

Comes complete with all the special props you require, plus two knockout handling's.

Handling one
A card inside an envelope is placed on the table next to a deck of cards. The spectator asks for any number from 1 to 52. The deck is removed from the card case. The cards are dealt face up one at a time until you reach their selected number. The card is removed from the envelope it matches the card at their number.

Handling two
It gets no cleaner than this. A playing card is laid face down on a spectators hand. (no envelope) The spectator names any number from 1 to 52. The deck is removed from the card case. You deal the cards face up one at a time, finally arriving at the chosen number. Its hard to believe, they turn the card over in their hand. I think you have guessed the rest.


  • Instant reset

  • Only one deck

  • No memory work

  • No multiple numbers to learn

  • Always deal the deck the same way

  • Only one envelope

  • Only one card in version two

  • No switch of any kind

Best trick of the year? Report this review

This effect is probably the strongest, easiest to perform CAAN effect I've ever seen. I didn't buy from Penguin because I don't think it was available here yet when I got it -- although I'll be asking Penguin if I can get it in my preferred Red bicycle deck. Anyway, this is like the Grail without the "move". It's totally straightforward to the spectator and will fool most magicians. I will be performing this tonight as part of a holiday dinner show for about 40 people and expect this to slay them. It's just as described, in the primary handling, you place an envelope on the table and bring out the cards in their case, the spectator picks ANY number between 1 and 52, you open the card box, count down to the number they chose with NO funny handling, show the card at that position, then slide a card out of the otherwise-empty envelope and that card matches. EVERY time, no fuss. Totally worth every penny.

clever but too gimmicky Report this review
Verified buyer Pro Privacy ON (login to see reviewer names) on December 22nd, 2012
This effect is similar to The Grail, both being CAAN tricks. Both are clever, and both require pre-setting a deck. Without revealing the method, all I'll say is that both use deceptive but distinctly different methods to get the cards ready to be counted. The Grail requires a relatively simple 'move' and a bit more silent calculation. By comparison, X-Act is pretty much self-working. That's an advantage of course, but it requires the use of an ultra-gimmicky deck, and in general the spectator cannot handle the cards. In the Grail, the spectator can handle and count the cards freely herself. I have used the Grail several times in performance and it kills. From the spectator's point of view, it is more deceptive than X-Act, I believe. But X-Act is easier on the performer, and it's one of the most clever solutions to CAAN I've ever seen.

So good! Report this review
Verified buyer Pro Privacy ON (login to see reviewer names) on December 6th, 2012
I'm always worried spending more than 20$ on a trick because I'm not sure if its something I can actually use. This trick is by far the best money I've ever spent with penguin. you literally count down to their card and it works Everytime.

The best of the best! Report this review
Verified buyer Pro Privacy ON (login to see reviewer names) on December 9th, 2012
Firstly, I probably know about a dozen CAAN effects.
My favourite up to now has been The Grail by Mike Rose / Alakazam.
I was sceptical to think anything could be as clean as this.
As soon as I watched the DVD of x-act, i knew that this was a game-changer.
It's so incredibly simple to do, so that you can concentrate 100% on your performance.
I received this on Thursday and put it straight into my act for a couple of performances on Friday and Saturday night. The results were excellent.
I personally have decided to perform version 2, but both are equally as good.
When this comes back in stock, I'll be purchasing another immediately!

Oh...snap! Report this review
Verified buyer Pro Privacy ON (login to see reviewer names) on December 21st, 2012
I just got this but it was easy enough to figure out to be out performing it right away. I showed my magician buddy & he couldn't believe it.

This trick plays really good with crowds & drunk people. Since this trick is gimmicked & thus not really examinable I find this one great for a bar or social enviroment. After the crowd has examined your real deck during your slight of hand routines. When there all crapping themselves from the last trick I do a quick deck switch & stun them with this as a closer. X-Act delivers.

I busted out my new xmas tricks in Union Square in SF. I wanted to do some shows for free (I usually hit people up) & practice these new tricks and give away magic to lighten the holiday spirits. Anyhow this trick & another, along with my usual routine, scored me about $60 in unsolicited tips over the first two hours. You can't say no, if someone offers, right?

I'm just slightly better than homeless but strong stree magic keeps me fed, clothed, & sheltered. This trick will get used. Be sure to request your color preference. I got blue & would have rather had red. You know red subconsciously means stop (& watch this).

If you want a trick know one can figure out, but isn't fully examinable, this is it.

HORRIBLE Report this review
Pro Privacy ON (login to see reviewer names) on January 26th, 2013
GARBAGE! The deck is so gimmicked it's rediculous. You can't handle it freely. They can not handle it at all. Sure the cards that are dealt are more or less clean, but if they don't name the right number they can not look in the box. They can't look at the back of the box.

DO YOURSELF A FAVOR. GET INSANE BY ANDY NYMAN. Same trick, cleaner, and THEY handle the deck the entire time and it is examinable. DO NOT BUY THIS WHEN YOU CAN HAVE A MUCH BETTER TRICK THAT IS CLEANER!!!!!!!!!!

Okay Trick Report this review
Verified buyer Pro Privacy ON (login to see reviewer names) on December 26th, 2012
perform it more like grail and it works. [edited to protect secret] I also let the spectator hold the cards and deal them down to their chosen number. People like hands on tricks!

So easy, so clean Report this review
Pro Privacy ON (login to see reviewer names) on December 9th, 2012
And so much fun to do. This one fools everyone-- laymen and the best magicians I know are left with jaws dropped. A great effect. Let them burn your hands-- there's nothing to see. And with a little bit of imagination, I came up with a way of making the first handling even cleaner!
