“I think it's a fantastic real-world method. I really wish I'd seen you do it before I read it. I'm guessing I would have been really fooled. Your method is diabolical and completely practical, and you are to be congratulated.“ -Mac King
On this jam-packed video, FISM champion Boris Wild teaches his coveted method for one of the most powerful card effects in history.
When Boris first presented ACAAB to the magic community, it was quickly recognized as one of the best methods for the "Any Card At Any Number" plot.

Can be done with any number 1-52 Report this review

The first thing that came to mind when I heard about this effect was a calender. I thought that there would be a force requiring a pocket calender or that we would be limited by the days in a month, neither of these assumptions are true. It can be ANY CARD at ANY NUMBER and the spectator deals the cards face up to reveal the chosen card.6 of 7 magicians found this helpful.
This is a very practical, very deceptive, simple solution to any card at any number. It is probably my favorite method for this effect and I will start using it.
Some things that make this stand out include:
-ANY Card can be chosen
-ANY number can be chosen, 1-52 NOT LIMITED to a calender
-The deck is isolated in your picket the whole time
-The deck could be shuffled by the spectator or used in other efffects before hand.
-No memorized decks are reqired
-The spectator deals the cards face up for the reveal
-The reset takes just a few seconds
-The effect looks the same every-time you perform it. It does not change the way one might it used multiple outs.
Some limitations to be considered include:
-It is probably best to perform while wearing a jacket although ideas are given for those who where a vest
I love this effect and I wish it was more expensive so that fewer people would know the secret!

I have been doing an ACAAN routine for a while now using a memorized pack. When I read that there was no memorization, I was a little skeptical, because every ACAAN routine I've come across has required either memorization, or someone picking a card (which is more CAAN than ACAAN). THERE REALLY IS NO MEMORIZATION AT ALL! it is almost impossible for ANYONE (including magicians) to figure out. A++. Incredible2 of 2 magicians found this helpful.
The grail of ACAAN! Report this review

Boris chose a birthday theme for maximum impact, but this actually is "ANY card” at any number" and it is the BEST version I have ever read or performed. They can choose any number, 1-52! And they do choose ANY number.....AND they choose ANY card. NO force or equivoque.3 of 5 magicians found this helpful.
I re-watched the DVD performance for an hour and couldn't figure it out. I think that's a good exercise instead of jumping to the explanation. But this routine had me fooled, badly. What had me stumped is that the audience member removed the deck from the card box and they counted the cards to the freely chosen number. It just didn’t seem possible.
Key points to know about Boris's routine:
There is NO pre-show work!
There are NO stooges!
There are NO memorized decks used!
Boris Wild's ACAAB is easy to learn and perform and will show you what happens when a FISM world champion in card magic puts his mind to this classic plot.
Acaab the long way round Report this review

Bit disappointed really, been wanting this for ages the description and reviews sounded great but unfortunately too much poetic licensed used as in many effect, bold statments and thin promises :( a think less is more in a description leave it open unless you can deliver on the promises2 of 3 magicians found this helpful.
Great stage act hard hitting great reveal
Once set up (a bit fidly) easy to get ready to perform in an instant
A lot of explanation but a bit rushed for the Sleights (but only minimal Sleights used)
Uses a lot of materials (cant be used for other routines)
Does need a bit of memorisation and cant be freely handled by spectator (as the description says)
A lot to carry so only good for stage I think
Really good acaan version for stage hard hitting and very personal, it would be a bit of an effort to perform this with other routines for close up or street work because of the amount of materials that are needed.

Boris is very good at explaining this trick. It will take lots of practice before you can perform it smoothly. That's why the 4 stars. Probably the best ACAAN.2 of 3 magicians found this helpful.

Beautiful Method - Have not performed Report this review
Verified buyer Pro Privacy ON (login to see reviewer names) on December 2nd, 2013
The method for this is beautiful. A bit convoluted, but not too much, and definitely worth trying in the right venue. I'm not doing stage shows, and this really feels like something that would require a show. It seems a bit too much for casual walk around or amateur tricks for friends. So, sadly, I haven't actually done anything more than watch the DVD.1 of 2 magicians found this helpful.
Lots to carry, remember, and do Report this review

I was really excited to pick this up for a relatively cheap price in the Open Box; however, I would have been a bit upset if I HAD purchased this for full price.
Boris has come up with a great idea in this routine, but there is just lots of "stuff" you need to carry with you, making this routine very impractical, unless, as other reviewers have stated, you're MC-ing a show or doing a stage performance. I don't do either, so the effect is useless to me. Also, there is a lot to remember (not memorize) and do (spectator management, "moves," etc.).
I wanted to give this 3 stars, but generally speaking the effect is good given the right circumstances; also, the fact that I got it cheap allows for more objectivity.
just ok for me Report this review
Verified buyer Pro Privacy ON (login to see reviewer names) on May 6th, 2014
The effect is great but it does take some number sequencing and memory to not give away how it works to perform. For me it's going to take alot of practice but for those who have a good memory will love the effect. Love the routine.
