There have been many variations of the secret cut out of the box offered to the magic community over the years (some gimmicked, some not) including but not limited to creations by Krenzel, Ackerman, Wind, and myself with Meant To Be and then Flip Shift (my personal favorite).

Adrian kindly reached out to share his approach, and I have no problem with him offering it as another option for performers interested in ACAAN.

All my best,

JB

Not sure what shipping method is used but how long approximately to get to the west coast of the US?
Just curious when to look for it. Typically it takes about 2 to 3 weeks but I thought it said express shipping which can be much faster.

You should get it tomorrow or Tuesday. It's supposed to be less than 5 working days.

Just received it, and this is IMHO the simplest ACAAN that offers many pros like the fact that the spectator can deal the cards himself face up to see that all the cards are different, both the number and card are selected by spectators and a technique that is very simple and straightforward.

The cons would be that the case isn't examinable but I believe that if a spectator asks you to do so, that means that your presentation is missing something. besides that, even some magicians friends who saw the case had no idea on how I was making it possible.
Another "con" would be the fact that the number has to be bigger than 3 and that one card can't be named, but it's something that is easily managed.

I agree that video instructions could be great but Adrian is really responsive to answer questions and give extra tips, he's a creator who needs our support and his ACAAN is a real worker.

I think it is worth the price and I'm sure I'll be having a lot of fun with it, there is some work to make it look great, but nothing hard or insurmountable and it's totally worth the effort.

I think also as said above that an instructional could explain the concept better, but so far that has been by the availability and responsiveness of Adrian, a creator who deserves support, looking forward to his upcoming creations.

For me, it's the cleanest ACAAN and it will be the one that I'll be using on my parlor and stage shows, not so much on close up, not that the angles are very bad, but I prefer to do it in a very safe environment, but I'm sure, some of you will pull it off on close up.

Very disappointed to hear that it might not be so good close up, big shame

Hi cardbiker,

Had to read through your quote twice to find your comment.

I was surprised at that, as I only perform this close up and wouldn't dream of doing it anything larger than a parlour setting. Whilst the case is not examinable, I begin by putting it into (one of the) spec's hands, and proceed from there. I assume that Apnoze's fears are more from a surrounded point of view as you don't really want people looking at you from the 3oclock to 9oclock positions. Enders Game's review covers this.


Thanks
Adrian

In fact, here are all the questions that I've answered in my review, one by one:
- What is the effect?
- What do you get?
- Can this be done impromptu, or with a borrowed deck?
- Can the deck be shuffled?
- How free are the spectator's choices?
- Can you let the spectator handle the deck?
- How examinable is the deck?
- How difficult is it?
- How good are the instructions?
- What is the quality of the gimmicked deck like?
- What are the angles like?
- What is the re-set like?
- Can it be repeated?
- Is any patter provided?
- What settings is it suitable for?
- Has this been done before?
- Is it worth it?
- Where do you get it? [here]

So if you're wondering about any of these questions in connection with You Chose Wisely, head to my full review on The Magic Café here to find the answers:

Enders Game's review mentioned that all orders would immediately receive a link to a video to assist with learning the trick. I ordered last week but didn't receive anything. I haven't received the package yet, so there's no rush on the video, but just curious if I should be requesting it. Looking forward to playing with this!

Aye, it should say that all orders will come with a link. At the time EG wrote the review I was emailing them manually. In any case, you have a PM.

All the best

I also forgot to say: What an amazing review, EndersGame. I don't think I've seen any of your reviews before, but now I'll be paying close attention looking for them.
Simply fantastic depth and attention to detail.

Hi cardbiker,

Adrian is right, I was talking about being in a super safe environment that I control, but that's just me, and because for me an ACAAN is not something I would like to do on table-hopping.

So far I'm doing the training on close up and it's working perfectly, I highly recommend it if you want a surefire ACAAN that lets the spectator deals face up the cards.

Great job Adrian

I probably got the first one.... there is a little bit of training in mathematics and with the move but nothing impossible so far.... you have to be a little care for close up but shouldn’t be any problem at 180 degrees (don’t have anybody behind)
I ve a lot of Acaan and most of them are sitting in the bottom drawer but this one won’t . The best and simpliest Acaan I ever had.
Vote 10/10

Thanks guys, the positive feedback means so, so much.

Anyone that's ever put anything out will know how doubtful you become when it really is out there in other performers' hands. I'm glad that it seems that those have received it so far are finding room in their pocket for it. Means the world, sincerely.


Best!
