I purchased Matthew Johnson's CD ROM with PDF book on his version of ACAAN. He states "The deck is on the table BEFORE the card and number are named and there is no force of any number called for. The spectator deals down to the card themselves and their appears at their freely selected number. NOthing is used except the playing cards. I have purchased a few ACAAN effects. I am usually disappointed. This one did not disappoint. Let me make clear one thing in case it matters to anyone---you do have the spectator name the suit. The deck is then placed in front of them BEFORE they name which card they choose and the number they choose. Every ACAAN effect has some tradeoff. This one is very minor. Remember the deck is in front of them and the can say for instance the King or the 3 or the 7. Then they tell you any number from 1 to 52. To me this is strong. The effect is very practical. You WILL do this when you read the pdf. It won't sit in your closet. The cd rom is well done and you can print out the pdf. The directions are very well prepared. There is even a secret password to see video tutorials on Johnson's website (www.thecorporatemagician.com). The EFFECt: 9 The Materials 9 Difficulty: Not an Issue Price 8.5 If you are looking for a strong, practical ACAAN effect--I recommend this.
