Product Description

The buzz about this trick is phenomenal.

When Mike sent me his idea for A card at any number I was shocked at the creative, super clean handling he had created.

X-act is direct, killer magic that you will love to perform. You will love the method almost as much as the reactions you will get, when you perform X-act.

Comes complete with all the special props you require, plus two knockout handling's.

Handling one
A card inside an envelope is placed on the table next to a deck of cards. The spectator asks for any number from 1 to 52. The deck is removed from the card case. The cards are dealt face up one at a time until you reach their selected number. The card is removed from the envelope it matches the card at their number.

Handling two
It gets no cleaner than this. A playing card is laid face down on a spectators hand. (no envelope) The spectator names any number from 1 to 52. The deck is removed from the card case. You deal the cards face up one at a time, finally arriving at the chosen number. Its hard to believe, they turn the card over in their hand. I think you have guessed the rest.

Instant reset
Only one deck
No memory work
No multiple numbers to learn etc
Always deal the deck the same way
Only one envelope
Only one card in version two
No switch of any kind.
No adding jokers
Learn and perform this miracle in 10 minutes.

I'm just not crazy about this effect. It's a gimmicky, magnetic version of ACAAN (like there aren't enough of them out there). It's overpriced and there are too many "glitches" with this. I mean . . . Barrie Richardson's "Impromptu Card At Any Number" uses a regular deck of cards and can be performed with no magnets or mathematical figuring (that you have to use with "X-Act" -- which sounds really easy to do until you're performing it live for real people). I feel like I wasted $45.00.

It is a cleverly gimmicked ACAAN method. That’s the PRO. The rest is really CONs.


This is a tremendous amount of gimmicks for really not that strong of an ACAAN. First off, it’s not really an ACAAN, because it is not “any card”. It is your prediction card at any number.

The prediction card cannot be examined… not good.

The method, while full of gimmicks, also requires you to do math calculations in your head… not good.


There are so many ACAAN effects. I feel like I should recommend something, so if you want a really terrific ACAAN effect, get “Three Card Routines” by Asi Wind and check out his routine called AACAAN. This will take a bit of practice, but it is tremendously good.

Defending X-Act
There are very few card master magicians. Too many card magicians today just want to show off. They're less about entertaining and more about "Look what I can do with cards!" The really good ones have put a lot of time and hard work into convincing their audience what they are seeing is truly miraculous. X-Act is like a short cut; the same desired result but without the hours of practice. So what happens to the card handler’s pride if some low brow hack, or the pimply kid next door starts to effectively perform a variation of their most cherished, hard earned effect (ACAAN), but with a crutch or some other shortcut like X-Act? Many are going to be pissed. They’re going to poo-poo the effect. They’ll call it lame and say its crap and not good magic.

And this is exactly why I think X-Act is receiving such poor reviews. X-Act is an insult to card magicians and card magic in general. To which all I can say is, “Get over it!” If you want to show off card... [Read More]
