An ACAN (Any Card at Any Number) effect specifically designed for the close-up artist.
"An excellent solution to the ACAN plot. It's good to see a method that gets away from memorisation and estimation." - Peter Duffie
What if you could perform the classic ACAN effect while you were strolling or hopping tables and succeed every single time without fail? What if the method was simple, surefire and took up no more pocket space than a single deck of cards? What if this powerhouse effect could be performed with no memory work, no maths and no sleight of hand? What if the spectator could genuinely name any card and they themselves could deal the cards face up to the randomly selected number? What if the deck was completely un-gimmicked – just fifty two regular playing cards – nothing more? What if the reset was instant and the effect could be repeated table after table, group after group? What if the entire effect took no more than a few minutes from start to finish and each performance left the group with two of your own business cards, altered in such a way as to ensure they’ll be kept?
