#2 in Cards hot-list
An effortless ACAAN that the audience performs for themselves.
- Completely self-working
- Can be done Close-up, Parlour or On-Stage
- Uses a regular pack of cards
- No memorisation, mathematics or improvisation
A deck gets divided into 2 halves of 26 cards each. Spades and Hearts and Clubs and Diamonds. In short, both halves have ace to king of both red and black colours.
Participant 1 deals down one of the halves and stops anywhere he/she desires, the card gets turned over. To make things random, the participant again deals down to the value of the turned over card. Now that Participant 1 has a completely random card. Participant 2 takes his/her pile and deals to the same value like Participant 1. Both the cards are placed aside. The cards before and after their cards are revealed and they don't match. But incredibly the cards that the participants stopped at are a perfect match in terms of colour and value.
Also includes 2 Bonuses: A self-working Card At Any Number and A hybrid of Card At Any Number, Equivoque and simple improvisation.
Honest Note: Both the Self-Working ACAAN and the bonuses requires a working surface. Difficulty wise all of them are easy enough for a beginner, but pulling off the bonus tricks does require some experience.
