Most users who post about whether the ACAAN holy grail exist answer in the negative. This site http://sites.google.com/site/shockdocmagic/home had an ACAAN version for sale that seems to meet the Holy Grail requirements (I understand that this site has been the subject of another thread but this is a different topic). Assuming 15 individuals paid over $2000 for this effect that would be the best evidence that such an effect existed (the other evidence would be watching it performed). Keep in mind almost all ACAAN effects marketed specifically say "this is not the Holy Grail"---this site states the opposite. I guess my question is since we debate whether the holy grail exists, it is interesting to note there is a site that answers yes and has marketed such effect and apparently sold out. Comments Smile

Hmmm that's a lot of money for a single effect?
I know I've always liked the theory of the so called holy Grail but really $2'400 !!!!

that's madness!

Someone names a card. Some one else names a card... Without the performer having come near the deck, the spectator deals down to the number called... it is the named card.

That's it.

The rumor is David Berglas was shocked and impressed by Jeremy's straightforward solution. I actually don't want to know the secret. I'd rather leave the box closed and wonder at the mystery inside.
The secret of deception is in making the truth seem ridiculous.

I heard the same thing Mike.

Interestingly, Jeremy has also stopped talking about what it's "Not".
He used to be very proud to say his ACAAN was "Not this... Not that"... but now he's even stopped that.

And that's not even the version that Jeremy uses himself.

I did not sleep for a long time after seeing what Jeremy did for me on Skype with my own shuffled deck.....simply put it was subliminal influence at it's most extreme!

Jeremy Weiss is a good friend of mine. I'll request him for a complementary copy. I'm sure Jeremy will happily oblige. Smile Smile

. . . continue please! Smile

ACAAN: The Holy Grail

A borrowed deck is shuffled by a spectator. With the deck still in hand, the spectator calls out a number
(free choice 1-52) and names any card. The spectator counts down to the number and finds the named card.
The entire effect happens in the spectators hands. You control everything. No deck switches. No miscounts.
Impromptu. Devastating.

Here some performance like JW describes:

http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=_wXjNJG0rZc
http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=2J-PT2RfEsc
http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=nWNwzQfoCRs

The rumor is that JW talks about his effect on another private forum saying that his version is just a joke.

This can´t be real! If this is like in the video, than it´s the holy grail of all magic effects ever invented!

KIKI,

This is real. I've seen Jeremy do it. However, I'm a bit skeptical if the one and only time I saw him perform it was just blind luck because it looks too clean. As far as I remember it, Jeremy never touched the deck! And I think, please don't hold me to this, the deck was borrowed.
