Columnist: Aldo Colombili This is not an earth-shaker but it can be a nice interlude to something heavier. I’ll explain the basic idea with small and regular cards. The basic plot belongs, I believe, to Roy Walton, the clever cardman from Glasgow, Scotland. Several other magicians have explored this effect and have come up with […]
