Have the six cards three with black dots and three with red dots unable to locate my instructions I take it these are different than dots impossible.

It seems to me that you have the cards for Dots Impossible, NOT Dots Incredible.

Going only from memory, as I recall, Dots Incredible used some double-faced Dot cards. I also recall not being impressed with the trick and so let it slide out of my repertoire and memory. However, I still use the Dots Impossible moves and have made several variations on it using children's picture cards, Tarot cards and so on.

Well then you are probably correct as these are NOT double faced. Strictly 6 red backed cards with 3 being large red circles and 3 large black circles. Purchased in the late 60s so that may be why the different color. Do you recall the moves for them? If so my e-mail is jjc1635@comcast.net Thanks for your reply and assistance!

Dots Incredible by Al Cohen uses 4 regular backed cards (2 with red spots & 2 with black spots) and 2 cards with a red spot on one side and a black spot on the opposite side. Bob

Thanks, Bob! Now I remember, but I don't remember why I preferred Dot's Impossible except that maybe it was because at the end, all the cards can be left in the hands of the spectator according to the way I routined it to end up with three of each color dots.

xtacsgt, (what a strange name!) I won't e-mail you the instructions, but you can find them at the Magic Nook in Wiz Kid Qua-Fiki's Corner of "Go Fish Card Tricks," in the e-Book entitled "Catch-a-Fish." The first trick in that e-Book is called "The Lucky Fisherman" and makes use of Al Cohen's 1972 "Dots Impossible" moves, illustrated in photos by Qua-Fiki. He's got a new daughter and needs the money for baby food, etc. so I help him out now that he's a Wiz-father.
