 Papa Legba Special user home-an unremarkable spiral arm of an insignificant galaxy 581 Posts Posted: Dec 4, 2020 05:18 pm    0 I need to divine an item from a list of 24 with just a single card (2 sides). A binary solution would require 2 cards (4 sides) and ternary would require 3 sides. Any suggestions for a single card solution please?

Papa Legba Special user home-an unremarkable spiral arm of an insignificant galaxy 581 Posts Posted: Dec 5, 2020 08:15 am    0 Landmark, you're correct, silly me. Of course 5 sides needed for 24 items (1,2,4,8,and 16). What I am trying to do is similar to Effects with up to 16 items such as Zodiac sign divination etc. all of which can be comfortably accommodated on 2 sides of a single card. hcs, thanks for that, I have played with 2 different colours but can't get to a final, fluid methodology. Can you expand a little? pm me if you wish. Use the FORCE Luke.

You have a card bearing 30 numbers or items ,you can replace columns with colors.
