The article is as creative as the train on the cover. However he did come close on the "cat rack". There are still "flats" and "alibis" working today, but you don't see them very often. Most games today just "sell" stock.

Bill,

Whatever you do, don't let people know that SEAM 2006 in Birmingham is scheduled to have a lecture session on scams, cheats and games of "no chance".

It is the first weekend of August 2006. It is hosted by the Magic City Magic Club Ring 35.
