The Everchange Count is a false count with cards developed by Alex Elmsley to count 4 cards as 5 while hiding one. It can be used to display a face-up card apparently in the middle of 4 face down cards.
It is explained in The Collected Works of Alex Elmsley as part of the routine "The Great Pretender".
- Marlo's version appears in Sticks & Stones, Vol. 2, No. 13, 1978, page 3.
