From the creator of the best-seller SCAMP
comes a new effect based on the ACAAN plot. Although it is not the "Grail", it is direct to the point with a minimum of sleights and a few subtleties for a maximum impact!
EFFECT: The magician shuffles a deck of cards and asks a spectator to cut the deck a first time to determine a suit and a second time to determine a value (the suit and the value of the cards he cut to, let's say a Diamond and a 4). Then, the magician asks the spectator to imagine where his card may lie into the deck and thus, to think of any number. The spectator reveals he's thinking of the number 24. The magician turns 23 cards face up and only now the spectator reveals the name of his thought-of card, the 4D! The 24th card is turned face up by the spectator... It is the 4D!!!
- Easy to remember and to perform.
- Use your own regular deck.
- No table required.
As a bonus effect, you get an impromptu version that is especially designed for walk-around situations.
Finally, Tommaso Guglielmi (creator of such hits as Destiny, Subtle Scam and Eyes of Darkness) kindly provides his own handling for the last phase.
