July 18, 2018

Right at the end of the video above, scrolling at an incredible speed, are the results of FISM 2018. Thankfully, I was on hand with some high end journalistic tools – the print screen button and abundance of free time – to transcribe the winners of the biggest magic competition of the year into regular, non-moving text.
