So, I have a trick I got out of the magazine. (I think it was Genii) called "Hammasque Twist." It's a "Twisting The Aces" idea with the Ace, Two, Three, and Four of Clubs. The cards turn face up on at a time as you count through the packet. The last move is to turn the packet face up and have the spectator tap the cards. Counting the cards one last time shows the last card is face DOWN, but it's changed into the Four of Hearts! (or Diamonds, I don't judge.) Putting the Four of Hearts back in the deck, and cutting it into the middle, you spread the cards, and the Four is changed back into the Four of Clubs.

I lost part of the routine, and I can't find the page from the magazine that I THOUGHT I'd put in my folder!

Does this sound familiar to anyone, and do they have any idea where the instructions are?

If that's ridiculous. Then don't worry about it.

It's actually in Magic Magazine. The instructions for the "Hammanesque Twist" by Gene Castillon are in Jon Racherbaumer's column "Theory In Practice - Inside Out" of the Magic Magazine November 1997 issue "The Story of Magic & Ricky Jay".
