Hi,
does anyone have this, and anything to say about it, I am 13, would it be sutiable for me regarding difficulty. sounds like berglas effect, sure is cheaper than the berglas book, but is it as good?

I hear it uses 5 decks, is it easier than miracle, and which one gets better reactions.
can anyone reccommend other ACAAN's
thanks

Drawbacks: You'll need to be wearing a jacket. The audience will see two decks in play. It's described in a book, not a video. (OK, that's not really a drawback.) Search the web for Bryce Kuhlman's review. It will answer most of your questions.

It's not a bad version of the plot. The birthday angle does make it feel more personal. Every ACAAN effect involves trade offs. Search on YouTube, and you might find Michael Vincent's version of the effect. Some magicians will sneer at Michael's method, but take a look at how he routines and sells the effect. Michael turns it into a miracle, in his unique style. In my opinion, ACAAN is not a good stand-alone piece.
