Trying to find the Bob Farmer Magicana trick

Postby dlfodness » August 9th, 2012, 8:43 pm

I have lost track of the Bob Farmer card trick from the Genii issue a few months back. It was a transposition of Kings and Aces and used the Elmsley Count (are we surprised that Bob used the Elmsley Count?). I must have misplaced the issue of "Genii" that it was in, as I can't find it. Any help in locating it would be appreciated! Thanks!

Was it "Upside Down Logic"? That was in in the Dec. '11 issue with Franz Harrary on the cover.

Thanks, Steve, for locating "Upside Down Logic" for me! It's a great trick and I didn't want to lose track of it.

Steve Roth showed "Upside Down Logic" to a few of us at the recent golden gate gathering convention. It looks great. For those who might be members of my forums, Bob posted an updated take.
