Apocalypse by Harry Lorayne Volume 14, Number 2 February 1991 Page 1885 et seq.
Personal Comment: I can see this being a worker... Nothing spectacular about it, but it plays well with real people. You got an element of fail, a magic effect of a card turning over and you got an ending. This is simply a good filler routine. It requires no setup and nothing special. So it is good.
