instructions request

Postby Dale Shrimpton » April 2nd, 2008, 4:09 am

Morning.

Guys, Its a bit of a long shot but Ive a big favour to ask.

recently i have obtained a box of stuff from ebay.
( there were one or two nice things in it)

one of the items in the job lot, was the cards for the alex elmsley/ dr jax effect " what card ".
But it didnt have any instructions.

Its a bit of a long shot i know, but i dont suppose anybody reading this happens to have the instructions that they could e mail me?

it looks like an interesting reveal.
your help would be greatfully recieved, i can assure you..
Dale

ps...

Since the advertising blurb for this effect was a ghost, holding up the cards,(4 double sided cards, one "special") i can assume that the modus was the count.

however, the order and movements of said cards is baffling me at the moment

I think Ron Allesi has the largest collection of instructions, so you might give him a phone call.
