This is a great gaffed ace assembly but if you want to do an easy ace assembly with ungaffed cards try Ed Marlo's Bluff Ace Assembly

I think you'll find that this trick is one of the many featured on Michael Ammar's Easy To Master Card Miracles Set of Videos and DVDs. It is one of the bonus effects and if I remember correctly is on Volume 2.

benthompson yes they are a bicycle deck i think well worth the money ive had it for about 3 years now and it still works perfectly i love this trick and use it alot there is abit of sleight however they are not very hard. there are very good reactions however the only negative is you can end clean

I must be the only one who doesn't like this trick. The cards are good quality (Bicycle) and the booklet is very well written and illustrated, with photos if my memory serves me correctly. But I just don't like it and haven't performed it for a long while now; something about it just doesn't sit very well with me. As far as gaffed ace assemblies go, I would rate McDonald's Aces as being up there with the best of them. Regarding a previous post, this trick is featured in Ammar's Easy to Master Card Miracles, volume 2, and the gaffed cards are included.

There are a number of gaffed 4 ace assemblies..all excellent. I'm a born worrier who believes in KISS. I use non gaffed cards and the spec can choose any one of the four piles and the four aces will assembly there. You will need four decks but a child could do it without a worry. I'm sure you can figure it out.

I'm not bothered about this trick but the guy does it in this video, but at the beginning he takes the 4 aces out of the deck in a fancy way.

I can see how its done, but i just can't follow the routine using this video alone, its to fast, thus making it a good illusion and a nice way to spring the aces.

Does anybody know the name of what his doing? does anybody know any good books to teach me this in a more slower way! I have also seen Bill malone do this type of thing. Generally any good card book really, that teaches you this kind of thing.

No you're thinking of Mc'Donalds Aces. Which I understand is different to Aces in their faces. I love MA but I am interested in this. Can anyone tell me if there is a lot of difference between the two?

Different gaffs, different handling, different "story".
