Hey guys, I took the plunge and checked this lovely little piece out...do you sense a little foreshadowing here? Smile

Basically, YES there is sleight of hand, but literally there is two moves here, but they are literally undetectable in competent hands. I know I am famous for positive reviews of products and promoting people's materials, but I always say what I honestly feel. This effect isn't a show off or just another coincidence effect, it's a story telling effect that is logical and creates a connection with your participant or an audience. You could do this close up, one on one or cabaret and it would still have the same effect. This is not a psychological or suggestion method and because it is so simple, it leaves you open to what really matters in my opinion, which is the engagement/experience.

I recommend this to magi and mentalholics alike, plus for ten bucks to have the knowledge in the back of your mind for a logical experience that can engage a room full of people is a steal. Hope you all join me and take the plunge as well and enjoy another lovely presentation piece by our friend Pablo Amira.

Thanks for your words Jakob.
Indeed, it´s a piece suitable to magicians and mentalist alike. It´s flexible enough to be presented in both perspectives.

My style in performing tends to include an important script factor (either in the narrative, poetics or verbal finnesses) that enhance the effect created. I know that each person and performer is different and it´s clearly not needed, but I feel that is a great complementary ability to use during the performance of TCAAN.

I have persons that remembers the moment in which the participant place the hand on top of the deck, remembering that strange and appealing image and say "What did your really feel when that number came in your mind"?
Other persons say to to me "The other day I went to the casino and I saw a man doing that with the hand!!!" hehehe

All the post-performance fun.


All the best

I would like to chime in to share my opinion.

Honestly, I'm not a big fan of cards usage in mentalism performances, but there are exceptions;

These exceptions I'm talking about includes interesting mentalism plot for the card effects, so that in the end, it's not much about the cards as it is about the plot and the journey per se that you took a spectator to.

There is lot of great effects like this, TCAAN is definitely one of them (a 'psychic' game)! Smile

Ciao!

I was dubious about this before getting the download.
This is excellent - I love the simplicity and it's very powerful. Very minimal effort will produce an excellent effect. Very good thinking Pablo - Ten out of Ten.

I've performed this already. It's great. Impromptu and hard hitting.
After I've performed this in a real setting the effect is very strong and I really recommended it.

Im very happy that TCAAN is serving you well Joel.
Recently a magician client told me that he will use TCAAN now as a "lead-in" between Magic and Mentalism. I think that is a great idea.

Hi Dorian, I took the decision to not offer this product with a demo of the performance due the reason that this routine uses techniques known to the standard performer. With multiple views, the interested in this release can reverse engineer the method and the product lose value with that.

I prefer to explain the effect from the participant´s POV and letting the purchaser understand the value not just on the core method presented, but also in the narrative used, the style of my performance in which the purchaser can learn aspects for his own work and obviously the core method.

In this routine the performer removes 4 cards from the deck, letting the participant be a clairvoyant for a moment and know the exact position of the 5th card that creates a royal flush.

A recent buyer told me his variation of using the TCAAN routine but for finding the mate of other card. A participant thinks in a card, then you take one but before the revelation you ask him to name a number to deal cards.
Then the thought of card is revealed to be correct AND the card that your participant stops at is the perfect match!

Very good alternative routine inspired by TCAAN. If any other buyer wants this variation, just contact me and I can share it.

Amira,

Who names the card--the magi or the spec?
