ACAAN is truly the great white whale of card magic. Doesn't exist without some trade off ie. can't deal the cards face up, more than one deck, etc. So without more info this is simply the latest in a series of ACAAN but not the greatest...well except for the price.

The end of the world is now less than 5 months away and so why not drop $2400 to buy ACAAN? I have a great idea...why not Jamie D. Grant do a review of this in his Magic Friday column? What would Angry Bob say about this ACAAN. If Angry Bob gives it a thumbs up then I'd be willing to drop the big bucks for this.

$2400 is a drop in the ocean for tv, why wouldnt it be worth it? Not everything is, nor should be sold cheapily. And I don't get why some of you are ravenously chasing down jeremy just cos he's got something you're not going to get yer mitts on?

why is it so important to you?! be happy with what you've got...

I only saw it performed the once...and it was one of those white-heat full on flush like moments...


Vin, again in this thread another one who saw it and I would say "white heat full on flush" is a rave

So this is something that you immediately added to your repertoire? If I wanted it then I would buy it but based on what? The vague recollections of people who don't know quite remember the specifics. Not that ravenous about it.

SPM


nope - I couldn't buy it...the amount available to purchase had been taken by then...it was pretty much a fluke that I got to see it happen from start to finish...

its around a grand in UK money...i would have bought it if I had the chance though..instant selling point isn't it...

FYI--in the thread Penny for your Thoughts, Bob Cassidy received permission to reveal he purchased the effect and uses it with lay audiences. I hope this quiets the doubters.

Jeremy also has a straight jacket escape that I would have bought from him for twice this much.
Those who know him, know what I'm talking about.

Those who know him also know him to be a quietly brilliant thinker... not to mention modest.

Cost and Value are two completely different animals and those who perform know the difference.

"...those who perform know the difference..."

A bit of a self serving comment that really adds nothing to the conversation. It says if you were smart you'd agree with me and since you don't agree with me then you obviously aren't that smart. Those who perform...I perform I just don't happen to agree and would like more info for a $2,400 item. Still, I'm impressed that Bob Cassidy has purchased this. I'll hold back on my fina decision after I read the reviews in Magic Friday.

Ha, come on, Jeff.

I don't need anyone to agree with me. But I would argue that my post isn't self serving. I was trying to articulate what I think this thread is about. "What makes something worth anything?"

Return on Investment.

If I did card tricks for my friends and family it'd be dumb to pay $2400 for a card trick. But if I had a big show, or a shot at a great gig it could be money well spent.

So there... My 1000th post... what the f%$k am I doing with my life?

best

As an owner of the original (I paid the full asking price) I can confirm that the effect DOES exist. Version 2 has also been received. Jeremy has allowed me to publicly confirm this.

Ok, the NDA just kicked in.

Ben Harris, Bob Cassidy have this...hmmm. Me thinks that perhaps there's something to this after all.

I'm going to have to revise my position on this effect. I don't expect a demo because if it's as good as it appears then one isn't necessary.

Is there a specific reason you should receive special treatment when it comes to a demo?

I was just wondering, as if a demo did happen to exist, I'd like to see it for my own enjoyment.
