Frans,
Did you download the file to your computer, or simply watch it on the VI site? I requested a download (which they watermark and send you a link to). The download I received was the updated version.

Chris,
Nice job on the update! Much appreciated.

I think the demo portion is the same, so if you just start watching it's easy to think it's the old version.

Yes, the performance is still the same, but the explanation is completly different.

I logged in and saw that the video was already there waiting for me. Normally it takes a couple of minutes to make a watermarked one. I did however did a request a couple of days ago because there woud be a new video but that turned out to be the old one.

>so if you just start watching it's easy to think it's the old version

No, I rushed through the whole video, including the carpetscenes.

This is a fooler, very practical effect that fries people. I like hands off effects like this, the "work" is very hidden. Reset is not instant but only requires minimal work. Vanishing Inc never disappoints!


not fast enough for walkaround though.

The coolest thing about this effect is that once you have created the card via the CAANDY procedure, and know where the card is, you have several presentation options other than ACAAN. Mike Powers mentions two in this month's "Card Corner" column in the Linking Ring -- force the card or sandwich it between the face-up creator cards with a faro shuffle. One presentation I've been using is John Bannon's "51 Fat Chances" open prediction effect.

Great idea to combine this with Bannon's 51 fat chances, thanks lumberjohn.

I thought about combining this with Powerball60 as an introduction about being lucky or not etc. to 'steal' their only thought of number. After the selection of the card in the CAANDY way you give them the deck and only then ask for the number they tought of earlier, they count themselves to it to find the selected card...

I wrote a 3-paged PDF ("Candy XS") with some modifications and tweaks I added that IMHO make CAANDY even better.

The following topics are covered:

- The presentation is even more baffling as the spectator deals his cards face-up without noticing anything weird!

- Reset is much easier now!

- The risk of strange numbers being named may decrease!

- The chance of a more suitable location for the arrow card may rise!

Call me crazy, but today I decided to share it with you!

If you're interested PM me (you will need to prove purchase of the effect)!

I was sent the PDF and was ask to post my thoughts. The ideas are great that why I posted them back in March.(see my post above)

One of adjustments I did also make was noted in the PDF. I made the same change to another effect that I noted in the thread about that routine but could not note my change as to not expose the method.

The only thing I can not take credit for is his idea of getting another number. Which in my option I would not do.

So guys , how is the new improved download ? Does it explain better how to deal with non optimal numbers etc?

Yes, it clearly delivers.

The original routine is based on a very good idea, but it is not exactly a polished routine and I had the impression that the creator - as clever as he might be - didn't have the patience to really think it through and play with presenation and method.

The download delivers that polish with a nice subtlety, presentational ideas and - most importantly - a way to create a less obvious setup.

Well written with some very nice ideas. It never hurts to have another method of doing an effect and the ideas in this 3 pager are certaintly worth looking into. Thanks for sharing!!
Why call it common sense when it's so rare ?

Yes, I also agree with Rizzo...nicolino has made some very nice modifications to the handling which clean it up a bit and make the reset so much easier. Very nice thinking by Nicolino!

I agree with you, the idea's Nicolino added are great ones and can enhance the effect, although I won't change the deck s.... because I generally use it before and after CAANDY for other effects (see Michael Closes Devious DVDs to find excellent examples).
