Any Liar Any Truth Teller - ebook


Product Description


"After a LOT of research and experimentation, I've applied one of my favourite creative techniques from Hegarty to a delightful twist of logic from Smullyan and have devised an absolute wowser of a card trick! Even if I do say so myself ;-)

It's titled 'Any Liar At Any Truth-teller' (you can probably guess the plot!) and rather counter-intuitively, adding the liar/truth-teller element into the ACAAN effect not only ramps up the impact immeasurably, it also really clarifies the impossibility of THAT specific card being at THAT specific number. Particularly since you don't know which one of the participants is lying about their card or number until the very last second...

Suffice it to say, if you already use Tequila Hustler or Strange Oblique then 'Any Liar...' will probably go into your repertoire immediately. I honestly can't see myself ever doing the ACAAN effect any other way from this point on.

It is a printed booklet or eBook, and teaches two versions: one using a gaffed deck (my favourite and the only one I'll use, although your mileage may vary) and a second handling which closely replicates the effect using a regular deck.

Oh, and it has fooled EVERY magician and mentalist who has seen it :-)

"Mark's new 'Any Liar' is a hugely powerful and totally entertaining worker. How does he keep coming up with them?!? I don't know either, but I'm glad he does!" - Marc Oberon

"Mark has a knack of threading together unrelated ideas and principles and turning them into a coherent, intricate work of art! This routine is equally as beguiling to the performer as it is to the spectator and I cannot recommend it highly enough." - Jamie Badman

  1. Liar/truth-teller mated with ACAAN for mentalism brilliance

    Posted by Unknown on 9th Aug 2016

    Mark Elsdon rarely disappoints. He's a fantastic creator and writer who has done some amazing things. This may be his best yet, even better than Tequilla Hustler. Taking the hoary ACAAN, Mark's version has two spectators--one to play truth-teller, the other to play liar--choose a card and its position in the deck. The two then tell the mentalist what they chose, either the card or its number in the deck, and one is lying. The mentalist can immediately, without pumping or any questions at all, tell who's lying and can name the card and its position. If that doesn't sound like a new and spectacular version of ACAAN to you, then I'm not sure that you have a pulse. This is absolutely genius both in routine and method. The only thing that you need to know is that unless you have a couple of extras lying around your card magic drawer, you will need to order some things to make the gimmicked deck. It cost me about $10. This trick is a real stunner. The talk about thinking outside the box. Well, this destroys the box. Until I read the smart old-school method, I couldn't even hazard a guess how this was done. But Mark's done it. Get it. It's that good.
