Amazon has it.


Thanks, but it doesn't ship to Canada and the item is not available on the Amazon.ca site. Grrrr… I am so looking forward to getting a wallet suitable for card magic without spending a small fortune for a gimmicked one...

I finally printed up some of the these charts (albeit in grey scale). I didn't go with the full four-bank stack as written, but instead had enough spare cards to go for two banks, with the stack cards alternating with indifferent cards. The selection is a deal till you stop approach rather than the (preferable) spread, with me counting and the selection being the just-dealt or the next-to-be-dealt according to whether we are even or odd. My present charts are on heavier paper (not card stock), folded, and stowed away in groups of three in a my recently acquired Miller BKM wallet. I did a dry run with the spouse tonight and she was duly mystified.

In a Youtube video Simon himself actually uses larger folded double-sided charts. Moreover, he uses banks of a variant of 8K, not a subsection of the Aronson stack, making me think that the video, which has some of the familiar L&L audience members, was a variant of that published in Simply Simon.

I still maintain that the original Fate is a stronger version than the newer Fate Accompli. There is something about the complete freedom of selection and the lack of any switching that makes the old classic completely baffling.
