"A lovely card effect. Highly recommended!" - Andrew Loh
Double Scam is a two-phase ACAAN effect (Any Card At Any Number). A full deck of cards is freely shuffled by the spectator. Both spectator and mentalist choose a two-digit number. Each then secretly selects and remembers a card. The two cards are lost in the deck which is then cut and/or shuffled. The performer names his chosen card and the spectator deals to his chosen number. The performer's named card is found at that location. The spectator then deals to the performer's chosen number. The spectator's card (unnamed until that moment), is found at that location.
"Double Scam by Mike Daniels is one of the best purchases I have made in the past year. Extremely clever and the ingenious methodology makes it simple to perform and will probably fool most magicians. But will absolutely destroy laymen. Worth every penny and then some. Diabolic!" - Doug Canning
Double Scam is based on a principle described in Tommy's (Tommaso Guglielmi) excellent ebook Subtle Scam. The publication of Double Scam has the blessing of Tommy. Although this plot is similar to Tommy's Duplicity effect (included in Subtle Scam) the method used in Double Scam is completely different.
