Got this today...thinking behind it is ingenious. Normal deck. Not really any sleights. What you see in the demo is what really happens.

Chris has taken an old principle, applied it to a different plot and added some touches of pure brilliance to come up with this. What I like most about this is that not only is it a great effect for the spectator but it's also something that as a magician I can step back and admire for its construction.

Brilliant.

Just what I was looking for. A convincing CAAN that is very, very easy to perform.

This effect is indeed very clever. That is however also the drawback. It is so clever, that you have to practise a lot to perform it smoothly. But still one of of the best downloads I've ever purchased.

I have an idea for CAANDY, that will make it into a telepathy effect mixed with CAAN.

Interested parties PM Me, and I will fill you in.

you must have CAANDY and provide proof of purchase.

Thanks

Hey guys, good to see a lot of the questions that people had are already answered in this thread. It's a great help, and I appreciate it greatly. I perform this effect all the time, and it's just as fun to perform as it is to watch. I can't wait to see what you guys can come up with, that's the most exciting part about being a creator of magic is seeing what people do with your material. I thank you all for your support, and am looking forward to seeing what you do with this effect.

Cheers,

Chris Mayhew

Congratulations, Chris. What a great effect! Everything old is new again. Well worth what you charge for this. Perhaps the only thing better than the method that you created is the demo. Clear explanation, with humor, wit, and intelligence.

This is my early vote for Trick of the Year! This knocked me out like I had been punched in the face with an o* j** s*****.

I have this and like the overall conept,however I found the teaching lacked in explaining the basic move, if large numbers of cards have to be c-t or if the spectator places the creata-card in tne wrong location the amount of secret movement is troublesome. I'm not saying he didn't cover this but it seemed as an afterthought. This is a clever effect when all the conditions are favorable but like so many a.c.a.a.n.'s the spectators choices can make the effect less magical.

I agree. Some things coud be taught better, for instance a quick reset. How to punch someone in the face I can learn from other videos. But still, this is a real gem.

I like the concept not the teaching. I had to watch video twice to understand what could have been easily explained in a pdf. the video seemed to rush through the math needed and spent to much tine on the witty remarks for my taste. There is A Place for humor and A place to teach the method. And like I said in another post in some situations the amount of card movement after the create-acard is placed is not very deceptive. and more time was spent on discussing punching spectators in the bridge of the nose than dealing with problem handeling situations. And no mention of how to quick reset the stack.

I like the effect and the princie behind it is quite clever. However, I share the same concerns when an optimum didgit is not called out. Them it becomes more challenging to do without raising suspicion, especially if you are doing this for someone and several people are watching. The e planation I. The video for this was almost like an afterthought. I am currently working through a better handling for this situation and hopefully I will have one soon. I still like the effect and for 10 dollars, it was a decent buy.

Here is what I have been doing with it. Instead of spreading the deck on the table and have the card inserted into the spread. I hold the deck squared up and have them insert the create a card as I state place in somewhere in the middle but leave it sticking out.

As far as the reset goes it is pretty easy. I deal the cards face up instead of face down until I get to the number named showing the card matches. I can not go into to much detail here.

As far as the concern when a optimum digit is not called out. I go the other way. Again can not go into to much detail here.

I also made a few other adjustments that I can not go into.

Hey guys, I am just letting all of you know that I have re-shot the download and hopefully it is much clearer now. For those that have bought it. You can just re download the new version, or stream it directly from Vanishing Inc just like before.
For those of you that don't have the download yet, you should feel much more confident in your purchase now. The whole thing has definitely been a learning experience for me. Just because something makes sense in my head doesn't mean it will for others, I thank you all for the support, I appreciate it greatly.

Cheers,

~Chris Mayhew

I'm afraid that people who already bought the old version, still get the old version (because it is still in their shelf) That was my experience a couple of minutes ago.
