Everyone who replies here can also have a FREE copy of my lecture notes. All you have to do is tell me your experience with or thoughts on one of my effects that you either own or have seen along with your email address. That includes watching a demo video. I look forward to seeing your comments. The notes will be sent immediately and the MACAAN prize will be awarded at random and will include a copy of my newly released MACAAN DVD.

Happy Holidays to all and good luck!

Kind regards,
Max

Max,

I watched your demo of MACAAN and you truly blew everyone's minds!

This looks like a great effect.

There is technology involved but I can see how this is meant to enhance the effect.

Thank you granterg, I am happy you enjoyed it.

Just wanted to add that if someone wins that already has MACAAN I will allow them to either extend their service or choose something of equal value as their prize.

Kind regards,
Max

I own a few of Max's effects...

- MBS

- Envelope'd

- MACAAN

- Mental Killer

- Max's Svengali

I'm happy with all of them (how rare is that?), but I will speak of my experience with MBS. It is just a mind blower, a very exceptional tool - to me, the best money I have spent for something magical. Additionally, Max personally worked me through getting up and running (lest anyone think it was time consuming, it took all of 15 minutes!). MBS creates effects in which you really see the consternation on peoples' faces. Many tricks create smiles and interest. MBS reates the kind of expressions on spectators' faces that are memorable to *me*!
My ex-cat was named "Muffin". "Vomit" would be a better name for her. AKA "The Evil Ball of Fur".

I remember when I was checking out Multidimensional by Promystic and of course, I loved the effect but I was considering justification of the prop. Then I stumbled upon the Rubik's shell and I was like "wow, that is genius in simplicity." It served as perfect justification for the prop and I was immediately drawn to checking out other products.

Of course, I remember the craze MACAAN caused and checking out the café thread constantly. The live demo that circulated was what piqued my interest in it after having studied few other ACAANs.

Anyways, I wish you all the best.

P.S.: my email is ash_arani@hotmail.com

I have MBS, Dream Box, SSK, Improptu Serial Killer, etc. They are all wonderful and use all the time. I have also posted use with the Dream Box in another post you might want to check out.
"The New York Papers," Mark Twain once said,"have long known that no large question is ever really settled until I have been consulted; it is the way they feel about it, and they show it by always sending to me when they get uneasy. "

I've come into contact with many of Max's work, but MACAAN has been a real winner for me. I saw the explanation on Penguin Live, and after that I broke down and bought the iPhone app. Later that week after some practice, I had the deck made up and in my backpack while at MBA school. I had been performing with similar cards and was asked for an encore performance. I did the world's easiest "deck switch" (pulled out a different deck from my backpack) and I proceeded to perform MACAAN. The main reaction seemed to be astonished silence. A table full of some of the brightest students at a top 20 MBA school were stunned into abject silence, followed by some "burn him!" comments. While I've always been a firm believer that ACAAN methods have different tradeoffs and none is perfect, Max's MACAAN has got to be one of the best I know. This and other effects of Max's I've seen make me wish I had his brain and creativity for magic!

(my email address is: sgtgrey@gmail.com) Thanks Max and Happy Holidays!

I have Mental Killer on my Ipad and love it.

It's one of those effects that are just plain fun to perform.

Gotta say, Mental Killer is awesome. I paid full price for this right when it was originally released, and I have purchased the additions since then. It's killer!

When I didn't have an iPhone but used an iPod Touch, this app was great because of the Skype-feel. Now that I use an iPhone, it still works as well as it did before!

I have the Mystery Box, fantastic I lusted after one of these and when I finally got it it is worth every penny. I also have BILT which I would say is a great effect, except, the bill is so realistic, I spent it, just before a gig, Max being the gentleman he is rush ordered me a set, with a discount for the one I'd spent to ensure I had bills for my gig.

Love his stuff, if you buy it you will use it.

I have Mental Killer and it's really good, but the thing I've had the most fun with is No Choice... I have had a lot of laughs with it.

My favorite Mental Killer performance: I recently did the effect for some co-workers at a holiday group lunch. During the dialing, the skeptic next to me grabbed the phone after I had dialed the area code. He finished dialing the number on the business card such that everyone would know nothing was up. Ha ha ha.....

Thanks for a great effect!

More praise for MACAAN from me. Clever, clever, clever.

And unlike a lot of releases that seem rushed out, Max has thought of everything.

Cheers,

ME

I don't think I've seen an effect Max developed that I didn't like. I only own a couple, plan on getting more as funds become available Smile

Take Care,
