In this routine, a deck isn't perceived to be used. The magic is happening with just 4 playing cards... The heat is on them.


If you're doing magic in a social setting, like I do, people ALWAYS want to examine the deck. Unless it is implicitly obvious that you're working FASDIU.

My approach would be the following:
1) Perform "Any card".
2) Do a deck switch just before or during the revelation, while the heat is on the four aces.
3) Perform another trick with the ungimmicked aceless deck. OOTW would be an idea, using the four aces again.

Personally, I think it looks great, I have a very clear method in my head how I would achieve this and also had the same idea as Cameron that you can easily show the Aces BEFORE they name their card and then you go through, remove the Aces and can then go into the reveal. I'm not a big fan of single deck tricks, however I think some are worth it. The only thing for me, I need to decide what is stronger to a spectator in my opinion... any named card in wallet, or any named card printed on the back of 4 Aces. I am sure most would say the Card in wallet as there is just one card and nothing else in play, but to me that is a Magician thinking and not a spectator. I also like the idea of saying the 'You thought of an Ace didn't you', before showing you were right, kind of a Magician in trouble kind of effect. Well done AGAIN Richard!

I did a wedding cocktail hour this past Saturday and trying to get make sure most of the 200 people were able to be entertained in 1 hour and 15 minutes allowed only minutes for each group. An effect like this would have been ideal for such a gig.

I think Richard coming on here and answering some key questions in the way that he did was pure class 👍👍 .
His presentation and reasoning for everything makes perfect sense (as always) and it sounds a very nicely worked out effect .
I would only say in answer to his invisible deck view point that if a spectator may think you cleverly flipped their card over then there is a solution .
Use a brainwave deck instead which infact his new effect has more relevance to as the first reveal is face up on both .
I wish him great success with this new release and I look forward to seeing his new formula over traditional R&S methods and his handling nuisances which could be worth the asking price on their own Gaz 🙂

Thank you for chiming in, Richard! I think this will play very strong to laymen.
Please check regularly if you are becoming the type of magician Jerry Seinfeld jokes about.

X2 . If your friends don't want to check out this deck it doesn't mean your magic skills are great. It means you start using deodorant.

Clarity. At last. Now it becomes apparent and clearly reflects the price of this fantastic effect.

New effect by Richard Sanders you say?

Insta-Buy!

Sanders always puts so much thought and effort into his releases. I’ve yet to be disappointed.

I guess for $40 the question I have, is could this deck be made up easily enough with my favorite deck later, given a little arts and crafts? I’d hate to be using a $40 trick deck and not be able to recreate it later when I need to.

Its a good idea, doesn't look like the quickest trick to reset tho, granted you take out the aces, put the deck in your pocket. Trick finished, turn around, take deck back out, insert aces back in to their correct position. Unlike say brainwave or invisible deck where you just keep a break and slide the card back in and you're done.

I agree it’s an irrelevant question , as it never happens .
If it was to happen , say no or just bring out a regular deck from the same pocket you have just put the gimmicked deck in after taking the Aces out to begin the effect from their perspective Gaz 🙂

I love Richard Sanders creations but to me this seems very very obvious and very easy to make up a deck yourself with something we all know .
Lots of effects deploy the repeating words ( The and Of ) and I personally think there is nothing new going on here .
It’s just my opinion as I haven’t seen the method but on one viewing of the demo tells me that I could easily make a deck up that achieves this , it also tells me I wouldn’t want to anyway as there are way better effects already out there using a very similar principle imho Gaz 🙂


If you wanted to eliminate "name any card" and have them select one instead, (which I suppose is not "quite" as strong as the freely name part, then you could decide which card you want to force, put it on top, write the card on the back of the aces, actually stick them toward the bottom of the deck, then use perhaps a rollover force to force top card, and go into your reveal. Pros? No gimmck deck. Cons? You can only get one result vs multiple.

And I know that eliminates the entire point of the trick, which is that they "freely name" any card, which I suppose is stronger, but then again, in the mind of a layman, if they truly believe they had a free choice, there is a not a lot of difference. It's a case of compromise for what you desire as an end result, and whether you feel it's worth the gimmick deck and extra trouble.

Diminishing returns.
The difficult must become easy, the easy beautiful and the beautiful magical.

Daffy I don’t want to eliminate “ name any card “ . Just saying you can do that with an an ID deck or a BW deck etc etc and I love Richard Sanders !
I am just hoping he has a new roughing solution that has never been seen before and has also come up with other nuisances that have never been seen before .
I love the plot and the creator so this effect really excites me Gaz 🙂

Anyone know if there is a downloadable video or DVD? I remember great difficulties with Richard's Alpha Deck - the video on his site was not downloadable and also wasn’t watchable for many users.

Thanks!

I believe the ad copy said online instructions but wasn’t specific beyond that.

Hi J-mac Smile

Yes my previous downloads were hosted on a site that, unfortunately, went out of business.
This was beyond my control, so the only thing I could do was learn from it.
I learned that the only way to ensure solid deliverability is to host with a reputable company.

The new platform is Vimeo.
Vimeo has been delivering video for many years and is considered one of the best video delivery systems online
The online instructions are easy to view and play and the site is solid.
Incidentally, Any Card video instructions are very thorough, giving you all of the tools that you will need to make the most out of this miracle effect.

On a side note, regarding the old instructions, I did my best to always answer any emails from clients within 24 hours but most of the time I got back within 1-2 hours with new download instructions. Bottom line, I care about my customers.

I hope that helps.

Rich
