The first in a new set of tutorials created specifically for The Mechanic Deck and other Tool Kit products so you can get the most out of your gear.
We all the love the flipbook animation of The Mechanic Deck, but it’s not just there for good looks. Within the sequence is a hidden marking system, and once you learn how to read this fluently you can streamline your routines, make them easier to perform and even more impossible in your spectators eyes.
We have chosen to share our take on ACAAN as it’s a nice introduction to the marking system and demonstrates how versatile Mechanic Gear can be. We are going to show how you can achieve this classic effect using The Mechanic Deck, in a very casual, easy to do and unsuspecting way. It can be tailored to suit your personal style and there’s a version for every performing environment whether walk around or at the card table.
A good knowledge of card magic & gambling sleights is required. The routines taught in this download use classic moves you should all be familiar with, so you’ll be performing these effects in no time. We also talk about some of the other possibilities using the marking system and discuss routine ideas that should inspire you to create your own effects using The Mechanic Deck.
Here’s what’s covered:
- HOW TO USE THE MARKING SYSTEM
We don’t just show you how to read the cards, but how to use the system effectively in your performances.
- MACAANIC Vr.1
A streamlined, straight forward presentation using a few gambling sleights.
- MACAANIC Vr.2
A very fair ACAAN that the spectators can shuffle, deal and reveal themselves.
- MACAANIC Vr3
A mentalist style approach that utilizes the blank card that comes with the deck.
