-In this effect, any card and any position in the deck are chosen. When the deck is counted down to the selected number, the chosen card is found at that position. This is an outgrowth of the [[cards:card_at_any_number|Card at Any Number]] effect with tighter conditions, in which ideally any card and any number can be selected. Edme-Gilles Guyot published a version of this effect using an incomplete deck in //[[http://askalexander.org/display/11099/Nouvelles+Recreations+Physiques+et+Mathematiques+1769/48-50|Nouvelles Récréations Mathématiques et Physiques]]//, 1769, p. 46 of the unpublished Hugard translation. While the card in this method is only thought of, the procedure is involved as it uses the modus operandi of the [[cards:twenty-one_card_trick|Twenty-one Card Trick]]. In the following methods, the deck in which the card appears at the demanded number is apparently not tampered with.+In this effect, any card and any position in the deck are chosen.

While the card in this method is only thought of, the procedure isn't invisible as it uses the modus operandi of the [[cards:twenty-one_card_trick|Twenty-one Card Trick]]. But unlike its predecessor, the thought-of card can be brought to any position in the pack thanks to variations in procedure for which order the magician reassembles the piles. In the following methods, the deck in which the card appears at the demanded number is apparently not tampered with.
  
 Jean-Eugene Robert-Houdin proved that even when the choices are restricted, the effect can be dressed up to give the impression of a thought-of card appearing at any number: "The Thoughts of Two Persons Anticipated" in //[[http://askalexander.org/display/29472/The+Secrets+of+Conjuring+and+Magic/276-278|Les Secrets de la Magie et de la Prestidigitation]]//, 1868, p. 256 of the Hoffmann translation. Jean-Eugene Robert-Houdin proved that even when the choices are restricted, the effect can be dressed up to give the impression of a thought-of card appearing at any number: "The Thoughts of Two Persons Anticipated" in //[[http://askalexander.org/display/29472/The+Secrets+of+Conjuring+and+Magic/276-278|Les Secrets de la Magie et de la Prestidigitation]]//, 1868, p. 256 of the Hoffmann translation.
