My new ebook is available 'Chaos Theory' which is another take on the ACAAN plot, framed as a mentalism routine.

* No memorisation or calculations

* Minimal set-up between performances

* Only one deck used, visible at all times

* The performer never touches the deck

* The ungaffed deck can be left with the audience

* The whole audience are involved in choosing the cards

Comes with the main stage version, and a close up / casual performance variation.

Full patter included - this routine is full of theme and if you've given up on pointless feeling ACAANs this might change your mind!

I'll have to say I loved the alternate handling better than the main routine. So you have both.

Good job Julian.

I was one of the lucky 5 who received a free copy to evaluate.
I like this so much, I just paid him for it anyway.
In these bitter economic times, let that stand as my review and recommendation!

I am pretty chuffed with the reaction this has been getting. The idea has been stewing for at least a couple of years until I got it simple enough to be happy with it.

I have some other ideas for ACAAN and if I can get them into shape I'll include them into this same ebook as an update.

Now this sounds promising...
Any word on the patter that is used to make this convincing?

It would most definitely give the game away if you knew the patter.

However the routine starts thusly:

‘I’ve always been interested in randomness. If you’ve seen any documentaries attempting to explain chaos theory, you’ll know that even in randomness you can find patterns. Because of this, over the last few months I’ve been doing a bit of research of my own using nothing but numbers and playing cards.'

To be honest that's all that can be divulged! But at least you get more of an idea as to the theme.

I should add that this is more a mentalism effect than a 'card trick' challenge. You'll know what I mean if you have it. The whole premise means you have to be able to speak casually to the audience and not just go straight in to the whole 'give me a number count down blah blah'.

It's presented as a curiosity, which turns into an effect. The fact that the chosen card comes at the chosen number at the end of the routine isn't really expected but noticed as an afterthought (even though the deck is never touched, or switched).

Really hard to talk about this one without spilling the beans! It won't be for everybody, but as some other mentalists have said, if you've got half a brain on you you'll find many more uses for the subtle ruse used in this effect.

It's also probably one of the few acaans you can perform drunk, and it's possibly the least mechanical acaan to perform (well, that I've ever seen myself, but I have seen quite a few).

But I would say that wouln't I Smile

I'll shut up now.

It would be nice to read full honest review of this. At the moment it's not enough to push some of us to want to buy this.

Need more in depth reviews.

I may take a look at this and post a full review.

I'm currently working on a new method for this so I am interested to see what this is all about.

Sounds good tho!

I bought this because I own most Of Julian's stuff.

At first glance I knew it wasn't for me. Good, different but not what I would perform.

But I went on to read the alternative method and found a really cool routine I knew I would perform.

I don't have time to submit an in depth review. And even after that we would see a post that says

"anyone else?"

So there you have it. I bought this because of my past dealings with Julian and his products.

Thanks John. Nice to have someone who likes my stuff but is still able to remain truthful. Glad you like the alternative.

Just purchased and this will work well given the correct presentation. Nice ideas and patter will work very well. Well worth the $.

What confuses me is that statement from the previous review...

"The price, or trade-off, is that there is a deck set-up and
there also is a spiral notebook involved. The notebook
(which is not mentioned in the blurb and is an ordinary one
which is easily obtainable) is used to write down the freely
chosen number (and it is indeed a free choice). There is
some preparation to this notebook but it's a one-time set-up
and is not difficult."

Can somebody elaborate a bit more on this? A spiral notebook?
