"Poor Charlie" cards

I am looking for a replacement set of cards for the "Poor Charlie" trick. I ordered my first set from Gary Plant in 2004, but he just emailed me that he is in the process of moving and doesn't know if he will be making any more. Does any one know if there is another source for the (Derek D...

Trying to find the Bob Farmer Magicana trick

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...

You're right about the inner right corner not working out. I correct this by crimping the outer left corner at the beginning. Then everything works fine.

Black Sharpie/Red Ink -- What trick is this?

What trick is it that uses a black Sharpie pen and has a red ink cartridge inside it? I made one up a while ago and have since lost track of its name or location. Was it in a "Magicana" section in Genii?

Any help would be appreciated. Thanks!
