2D ACAIN by RaphaŰl Czaja

In 2009, Raphael was working on a two-deck ACAAN (that became the bonus routine of this ebook) when the italian magician Tommaso Guglielmi shared his new creation with me... that was based on the exact same method! He spontaneously gave me the permission to release the basic routine with my name on it and now, more than three years later, I can publicly say that Tommaso is a real class act! Just below is the basic original routine that the both of us devised independently. Ordinary decks. No sleights. Different outcomes at each performance. It is inspired by Cameron Francis' Convergence.

2D ACAIN: Two decks of cards are introduced. One is placed aside. The other one has numbers on its backs and is placed in front of two spectators. The spectators shuffle the deck and use it to get a secret number each. Thanks to their secret number, one thinks of a card and the other one thinks of a number. The magician deals the cards of the other deck at the number of the first spectator. The second spectator reveals his card. The card on the table is turned over: It is a perfect match!

Bonus Effect - DIVINACAIN: One deck of cards made up of two sets of 26 cards with a different colored back is introduced. The blue backed set is placed aside. The other one has numbers on its backs and is placed in front of two spectators. They use the red pack to get a secret number each. Thanks to their secret number, one thinks of a card and the other one thinks of a number.

The magician tries to read each spectator's mind and writes something down onto his business card. The spectators reveal their card and their number. The magician displays what he has written: They match!

So the divination was correct but what if he had been able to predict the outcome and had placed one card at a specific number in the other pack? The magician deals the cards of the other pack at the number of the spectator. The other spectator says his card again and the last card is turned over: It is a perfect match!

Raphael also include a variation in which the magician apparently guesses the wrong cards but when they are turned over, it turns out the magician is right. It is inspired by John Bannon's "Detour de Force".

"A very nice trick!" - Stephen Tucker

"Raphael's effects are wonderful explorations of the plot. The effects straddle magic and mental magic and the procedure appears very fair to the spectators." - Joe Caracciolo (Vlad_77 on the MagicCafe)
