PROS

This is an excellent routine that combines the magic square and the Any card at any number (ACAAN) plots. He shows a couple versions of live performances and then fully explains every detail. In the performance, he demonstrates humorous bits of business that are designed for a more adult setting and then another performance for more of a family setting.

The beauty of combining these two effects into one routine is there are many more bits of humor and powerful magic. He goes through a humorous approach to showing a participant different ways of shuffling cards. He then teaches a few different ways to peek a card. He then does a magic square before the number they thought of is revealed. The revelation of the magic square therefore has a moment of humor when he shows the square and asks them if they see their number anywhere on the grid. He then reveals the powerful magic of the square. He teaches how to make the performance of the magic square not require any memorizing and he provides a gimmick along with the DVD. He then does a mind reading to reveal the card they selected and finally, he deals out the cards to reveal their card at their thought of number. He teaches a very practical method for the ACAAN portion.

CONS

Wow, I can’t think of a significant downside. The only thing I would say is that you are in essence doing two routines in one, so it is not going to be a quick magic trick routine. However, it flows together well and the audience is thoroughly entertained throughout the routine. That is key to good magic. Another consideration is this is not designed for close-up. It is really best suited for parlor or stage settings.

VERDICT

Excellent DVD and some good instruction for effective ways to do this routine.

Manufacturer's Description:

Quadrare Caan Opus by Diamond Jim Tyler (DVD) Two amazing effects into one stellar stand-up showpiece.

Diamond Jim Tyler has married two amazing effects into one stellar stand-up showpiece. While the title may seem like a Latin magic incantation, it actually refers to The Magic Square and Card At Any Number. Knowing DJT there is lots of comedy built in and he shows you how to milk each moment.

A card is freely selected and a number between 20 and 50 is freely thought-of. The card, with the number on it, is placed back into the ordinary pack and shuffled. The magician proceeds to perform The Magic Square revealing their thought-of number about twenty different ways. Audiences are always amazed by this.

The spectator is asked to count and deal to their thought-of number. Once they arrive at their number the card is held high to reveal their selection with the number on it. The Card At Any Number portion of the routine comes as complete surprise to the audience and furthers their astonishment.

As a bonus you’ll see DJT’s Comedy Shuffling Routine which provides another few minutes of fun!

DJT provides many subtleties and provides some work on The Magic Square and his version of Card At Any Number to make it as easy as possible. Included is a special “something” to help make the math involved elementary.

Learn this and perform it and you’ll quickly discover that this routine gains much more than gasps. It garners respect. Your audience will believe you to be a mind-reader, a math whiz, and a card mechanic all in a span of just five minutes. DJT has personally used this for close-up, parlor and on stage. Make his opus yours.
