The Holy Grail of card magic, Any Card at Any Number (ACAAN), made famous by none other than David Berglas himself has taken a leap forward in The Journey from Matt Johnson; one of the easiest, most commercial, instantly reset versions of any card at any number you've ever seen.
For those unfamiliar with the ACAAN plot, a spectator names any playing card as well as any number between 1 and 52. Then, with a deck that has been on display the entire time, untouched by the magician, the spectator deals down to the selected number and the selected card is found at that exact position.
In The Journey Matt Johnson teaches not one, not two, not three, not even four but FIVE versions of Any Card at Any Number! Some with sleight of hand, some instantly reset, some where the spectator deals, some with a gimmicked deck and some with a borrowed, shuffled deck! No matter your skill level or expertise - from beginner to professional - you're sure to find something that you will use.
An example performance would go as follows. After borrowing a deck of cards the magician has a spectator name any card. The magician then spreads through the cards to ensure the selected card is there. Showing that the selected card is not among the immediate top or bottom cards, the spectator is asked to name any number between 1 and 52. The magician then openly deals down to the selected number and sure enough, the selected card is at that number!
