One of MAGIC Magazine and Genii's most beloved columns has FINALLY been compiled into one incredible hardcover book.

Bob Farmer's "Flim-Flam" column was a wildly popular feature in both MAGIC Magazine and Genii Magazine for many years. This regular column, which explored the fascinating intersection between cons, cheating and magic tricks, produced some of the most-talked about articles ever read.

For years, magicians have clamored for all of the articles to be compiled into one place. And now, that dream has finally come true! All of the "Flim Flam" columns, and even some amazing bonus material, have been compiled into a luxurious oversized hardcover book.

The Bammo Flim-Flam CONglomeration features nearly 500 pages of con and scam themed magic. There is everything from card tricks to dice tricks, coin tricks, rope tricks, mentalism, domino tricks, montes, gambling scams, bar bets...and, of course, tons of humor along the way. Everything is explained in great detail and is accompanied by 100s of illustrations.

In The Bammo Flim-Flam CONglomeration, you'll learn things like how to:

  • Cut to any poker hand called for
  • Throw dice that never lose (even though they're NOT loaded)
  • Transform pocket change into a cash-generating gold mine
  • Perform arguably world's best full-deck false shuffle
  • ...and so much more!

The detailed "Scamdex" allows you to easily find the perfect effect or demonstration for every audience or environment. You'll always have the right presentation for the right moment. But, please remember, everything in this book should be used for entertainment purposes only.

Customer reviews for The Bammo Flim-Flam Conglomeration



I’m glad I got this. It’s a treasure trove of ideas. That said, a lot of the material is bare bones or not really worked out in full. What this means is that you’ll have to put in some work to flesh things out or develop a full routine. For example there’s some material on dice monte. That sounds exciting but then as written in the book it’s simply a way to fool someone once after a series of moves. If you want to make a full routine you’ll have to invent one. Other chapters are like that as well.



Bob Farmer’s Bammo Flim-Flam Conglomeration is a fun filled smorgasbord of scams, cons, and bar bets – many with a magic theme. Given the enormity of the collection, most readers should find a few items they may actually use. Many of the entries use cards, coins, and dice. The book is clearly written, illustrated as needed, and an enjoyable read. There are few card magic items such as an excellent false shuffle that is worthy of practice.



If you like bar bets then this book is for you! This book is packed full of scams that a shyster (like me) will love. With such a wide variety of items presented you are sure to find something in this tome to your liking! Bob is an extremely colorful, witty and humorous writer. It's quite the pleasure to read.
