Stacks in Cards

A stacked deck is an incredible powerful tool for the magician. A memorized deck is for the most part committing a particular order of cards to memory. It will require work, practice and frequent use to keep remembering the stack. For systems of how to do this see our Memory & Mnemonics category.

An algorithmic stack allows one to calculate the card value (either the next card or a card at a particular position in the deck) without having to memorize an entire deck. The most famous such stack is Si Stebbins. Each method has its pros and cons. Try them out and see what works best for you.

The Gift by Unnamed Magician

Another trick that fooled the best cardmen in the world.

"This is a fooler! The Unnamed Magician has created an impenetrable mystery that not even your magician friends will be able to figure out. It's really well constructed and how he gains the secret knowledge is ingenious!" - Marc Paul

"'The Gift' is quite simply the most impossible card location that there is. Nothing tops it or even comes close to it. Just watch the demo video and ask yourself if you have even the faintest idea how the second card is located. I definitely had no ideas." - Tommaso Guglielmi

Vincent Gagnieux
Across the Bridge by Vincent Gagnieux

Face a deadly challenge.

In front of you lies a high bridge made of eight pairs of cards, reminiscent of the perilous glass bridge from the popular TV show "The Squid Game". Each pair has one red card (safe, tempered glass) and one black card (dangerous, regular glass). A misstep onto a black card means instant failure. No second chance. The odds of crossing the bridge safely are slim—less than 0.4% chance of success. But you’re not going to let chance decide your fate!

During the preparation, the participant checked each pair to ensure it included one red card and one black card....

The magician introduces a deck of cards. The spectator can thoroughly examine it, after which they can freely shuffle it for as long as they want in any way that they want. Once they're done shuffling, the magician invites them to spread through the deck face down and select any two cards that they like. They leave these face down on the table. The magician then instructs them to turn one of them face-up - let's suppose it is the JS. As for the other one, the magician tells the spectator not to look at this card yet - it will be a mystery for the end.

Next Stack by Unknown Mentalist

The Next Stack is a cyclical stack that is as easy to learn as the Si Stebbins stack but can withstand scrutiny, unlike the Stebbins stack. In the Stebbins stack, the increment of 3 or 4 could be visible to a participant if observed keenly. But in the Next Stack it is almost impossible to recognize the sequence.

The Next Stack is named as such because literally it is based on the "Next" principle, which is a novel, innovative principle. Given any card you can instantly know the next card.

It will take all of 5 minutes for you to learn this cool principle and start applying it. This principle...

Despite these test conditions, you apparently display a genuine feat of 'remote viewing' by attempting to name each card in turn, as if you are somehow able to 'see through the table'. With an accuracy way beyond the odds you are able to prove to your audience that they are witnessing a real demonstration of 'psychic' ability and what you claim to be true, must be possible.

I truly believe this to be the ultimate fishing deck ever devised using a normal deck. No markings, no rough and smooth, no short cards, no misprints. Use a 100% normal deck.

This is a new self-working card trick: the viewer will choose two cards, to represent the law and by means of which he will get two more cards, lost in the deck, which he will then divide into four bundles. Over the course of two separate stages, the spectator himself will insert the "sheriffs" within the deck, as arbitrarily as possible. The decks will be shuffled, cut and completed but, despite a thousand adversities, the two "sheriff" cards will succeed in tracking down and capturing the two "outlaws," generated by the combination of the first two cards, chosen at random.

About ten years ago the writer spent some time in 'doping' out a few poker deals as well as other games. He was fairly successful as the following stacks will attest. They are not all perfect and possibly may be bettered and improved, but he will say this much, he has not as yet run across any prearrangements that equal them. Incidentally one of the best poker deals on the market retailing for over two dollars is based on an arrangement that the writer created around 1920.

New Card Tricks with the Mark Twain Stack by Dick Cole

The Mark Twain stack is a Si Stebbins stack with a four-apart sequence in SHoCkeD order. It was first published in the February 1935 issue of Modern Mechanix and Inventions magazine. This is a reproduction of this article.

The Mark Twain stack, also called the Riverboat stack (see for example Magic Card System), due to the abundant gambling on Mississippi riverboats, gets its name from the practice on these riverboats to frequently having to measure the water depth. If it was two marks, pronounced 'mark twain', it was ok.

Snibbets by Dr. Hans-Christian Solka

An easy-to-calculate version of the Si Stebbins stack.

The name 'Snibbets' (Stebbins reversed) was coined by Rusduck. It denotes a reversed Si Stebbins stack where instead of adding 3 to get to the next card's value one substracts 3. The first to publish a negative step version was Ernest Hammond in The Magic of Tomorrow. While this may seem a rather inconsequential change, it has some advantages over the classic Si Stebbins stack. In this ebook, Dr. Solka takes you through the details of this lesser-known version of Si Stebbins.
