Price: $50.00
In stock: Download INSTANTLY.

Imagine being able to predict/reveal a thought of two digit number and playing card without the spectator saying a word, everything exists purely inside their mind Sounds impossible right? wrong, with abacus you can do this and a whole lot more, from open predictions to acaan style effects. abacus is a principle that opens doors that no other has done before and is being performed by professionals worldwide.

"Rus has adapted a very clever Max Maven idea and applied it to cards. The result is a very interesting and very easy version of the ACAAN effect." -Marc Paul

"You have created a wonderful piece of mystery here and I'm getting strong reactions when performing it." -Paul Rohmany

"Abacus is a combination of devious creativity and boldness. Rus has had numerous great additions and nuances to this plot over the years but he's really nailed it here. If you like the plot and want something your going to use I highly recommend Abacus". -Steven Palmer

Very Dishonest Trailer Report this review
Verified buyer Pro Privacy ON (login to see reviewer names) on February 23rd, 2016
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 way overpriced.

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!

A Gem Report this review
Verified buyer Pro Privacy ON (login to see reviewer names) on February 10th, 2016
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.

Misleading Trailer and subpar effect Report this review
Pro Privacy ON (login to see reviewer names) on November 9th, 2016
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.
