Can someone please enlight me using the search feature? I am a ruturning subscriber looking around and I am finding the search feature kind of difficult to use. I am looking for a published version of the folded card under the watch and when I plug it in I do get a bunch of issues that I know for a fact don't contain versions of the card under the watch. When I open a particular issue to find out that that is not what I am looking for I have to start the search all over again!!! Please help.

Thanks

I used quotation marks and searched for "card under the watch".

Yes, quotation marks around the phrase are a must!

Did I make a mistake? It is no longer possible to give a link to Conjuring Credits?

Philippe seems to have a word in the link that was censored.

The link included the words "wrist" and "watch" jammed together, thus making the string t-*-*-t, which is a vulgarism in American English (I hear it often enough in UK English that I assume it isn't as taboo there.)

The text at the link is:

"Card under Wrist watch
Bernard Bilis published his "Watch Watch My Watch" on the Stars of Magic, Vol. 6, 1986, video tape. In it, a card under his watch changed into another. The card in Bilis's trick was openly placed there, and not folded. Jay Sankey introduced the idea of the card being folded, and appearing under the magician's watch magically in “A Fold in Time” within 100% Sankey, 1990, Kaufman, p. 39. Norman Beck improved the effect by causing the card to appear under a spectator's [censored]. Beck's trick is described by Jamy Ian Swiss in Genii, Vol. 58 No. 7, May 1995, p. 513."
