All I can say is WOW, what a powerful effect. I've always loved Richard Sanders work and he once
again hits another home run with this one. This effect reminds me of Deep Astonishment by Paul
Harris where the predicted word was already written in advance. It's a very powerful effect that I
do all the time, and "Any Card" is just as powerful. This takes the invisible deck to another
level, and I didn't think that was even possible to do.
To have literally any card named
and already have that chosen card hand written and predicted, is just mind blowing to the spectator.
I did this for my 8 year old daughter after practicing with it for a few days, and when her thought
of card was revealed, she laughed so hard and just kept saying "how, how, how?" I could tell her
mind was blown.
Now what you are getting here is a very well thought out gimmicked deck
with online instructions. The instructions were very clear, and very easy to follow, showing you
step by step what to do. That was very important. The initial set-up takes probably 30 minutes,
with another few hours of waiting time. But once that set-up is done, you're good to go for the
life of the deck. Trust me, this set-up is worth the time.
Learning the trick itself is
also not that difficult. On a scale of 1-10 difficulty, I'd give it a 3. I had this down in a
matter of 2 days. The reset takes approximately 20 seconds if you're slow, and 10 seconds if you're
fast. Which is great because you can use this in walk-around. So a quick recap of the pro's and
* VERY STRONG EFFECT for the spectators
* Takes up minimal
* Easy to perform
* Easy to learn
* Quick reset
* Should last a long
* The set-up takes awhile
That's honestly the only con I can
Overall, I give this a 10/10. A true masterpiece, well worth the price, and I
will be using this a lot.

This is great and I love it. Similar technique to an Invisible deck but better - zero "hesitation"
when revealing a face up card. Easy to master and perform. The deck is not examinable but all the
heat is on the 4 aces so a deck switch is easy, but not at all necessary. Initial set up is easy but
a little tedious. The only reason I didn't give it 5 stars is because I think the cards should've
been marked right out of the box for $40. All in all, I'm very happy with this purchase and I'll be
performing this for a long time.

If you want a trick that you will perform, trust me this is the one. Once you give them the aces and
put the deck away, you are clean. It is a Brain wave Deck and Invisible deck on Steroids! There is
no fidgeting or fumbling to get the correct card; just a smooth action. What you see on the video is
exactly what happens. I just got rid of my Brain wave Deck and Invisible deck because the “Any Card
Trick” is taking their place!!! I wish I could give it ten stars! This trick just retired two of
the biggest names in magic for me.

It’s done more or less how you think it’s done but very clever use of the principle. I believe this
will play very strong. Frankly, like an invisible which still plays very strong but a little better
and a little different.
If Penguin needs to edit then fine but...
No your spectator cannot
examine the deck
No you can not pull out all 4 aces and then ask for their card.
are your requirements you should not get this trick. The rest of us will use it successfully.

Better than the invisible deck. Will become a classic. Highest recommendation!

I know we're only half way through the year but this is my candidate for T.O.T.Y. to date! Once in a
great while a trick will be released that is just a little too strong to elaborate on. Such is the
case with Any Card. A lot of card workers are going to be throwing this one in their case. It's such
a powerful routine. It's either a one and done or a closer, that's it. There is extensive prep
involved on this one but it is worth every minute...nothing hard, just writing on cards. A lot of
thought went into this deck. Richard the Great has done it again! You just might want to pick this

I absolutley love this trick. Lately I've been trying a different approach - I ask the spectator to
name their favorite ACE and then show that I've reversed all of them, hand them the cards and their
thought of ace is spelled on the back. I think it's much stronger and it justifies the reversed
aces. Idk, I think it makes it a little "impossible" in the spectators mind to have them name ANY
card. Sometimes (depending on the effect) when an outcome of an effect is perceived as absolutly
impossible it makes the spectator to start thinking and reverse engineering of ways (sometimes
obvious)it could've been done.
Anyway, this is a fantastic trick and well worth the $$$.

This is by far one of the best purchases I’ve made in years. Props go out to You Rich. This is like
the Invisible Deck on Steroids. Love it and Thank You
I have not done the marker work yet, but looks
very good. Richard Sanders only invents excellent
tricks so I will give it 5 stars without putting
it all together. LOU
Been a fan of this magician for many many years now. This is a Mickey Mantle
killing it out of the park trick. Wee bit of set-up, but it helps to learn the deck in this fashion.
Just... Mic dropping amazing.
