-====== Curious Count ====== 
-The idea of breaking up the counting to a selected number into smaller groups of cards to arrive at a predetermined card is usually credited to Fred G. Taylor. See his Curious Count from //​[[http://​​display/​12851/​Pallbearers+Review+Vol+3+4/​82|The Pallbearer'​s Review]]//, Oct. 1968, Vol. 3 No. 12, p. 210. The underlying principle however can be found in Stanley Collins'​ effect "​Sympathetic Coincidence"​ in //​[[http://​​display/​17860/​A+conjuring+m+lange/​67|A Conjuring Mélange]]//,​ 1947, p. 53.
