a) Misleading trailer
b) It is just a new presentation for the same principle used in his effect
c) Choice is very limited and any audience member with a regular IQ will be conscious of
d) Price faaaaaar beyond what is logical for it.
All in all, very disappointed.

I don't usually leave reviews for products but I am so frustrated with this I thought I should warn
anybody else thinking of buying it. The trailer only vaguely resembles the trick you receive. The
methods explained are nothing particularly new and should they have been fairly displayed in the
trailer it wouldn't be difficult to see what's going on. The reason I give two stars instead of one
is because someone beginning in magic might find the information useful; however,it would still be

This is not cheap, at 50.00 I did hesitate to purchase, but I’m glad I did. This is by far my
favorite effect from Russ Andrews. The method is so clever and diabolical. You will enjoy reading
the smart thinking behind this ACAAN effect. This is a real worker, the setup is easy and reactions
have been nothing short of amazing. The routine Russ provides hides the method perfectly and is fun
to perform. This is a great effect for card magicians and mentalist. Well worth the $50.00.

I've seen heavily edited trailer before, I've seen trailers showing effects that don't exist inside
the product but this, I've yet to see. Rus prearranged a limited selection of a number, a counting
to a card in a deck and got the most optimal scenario for the out and then presented it as if it has
happened on video for the first time with a compeletely free choices of both the card and the
number. Completely false and deceiving buyers. Unethical behaviour like that shouldn't get more than
1 star and that is even before we get to the methode.
The effect itself is great IF you
have a participant that follows orders you don't even mention. The subtle restriction doesn't fly in
the real world. I've had people on multiple occasions choose the wrong numbers, change and choose
another wrong comhination and then again only to come out of the trick thinking there are only 3
possible choices and come out unimpressed.
This effect looks great on highly edited video
and sounds great in written form but is not at all practical. Look elsewhere.
I was waiting for a review on this myself, so I would like to post one if anyone else is waiting.
This is really cool, I'v tried this a couple of times, and when I get it right the
reactions are better than I am used to. The cool thing about this is that the spectator really feels
that everything happened in their head, and it really does! They never say anything.
However, the video is a bit misleading if you ask me. It's not really how it looks like, though
that is how it feels for the spectator. I'm very happy with the effect and the method.
Now, two times when I have performed this, it didn't work. I have been doing magic for 10 years,
and I know that I have to practice to get it right every time, but it is possible for it to go wrong
if you don't give clear instructions. To me, this is a minor problem, and i look forward to lerning
how to get it right every time.
This is really fun to perform, and mindblowing if you get
it right. I would recommend it if you are serious about it, and if you are willing to pay 50 bucks,
I assume that you are!
