Hi

I’m looking for effects to be performed with a deck stacked in numerical cyclical order A to K, A to K, etc regardless of the suits.

I know I’ve seen a few just I can’t remember when or where

Thanks

That's a special case of a "tetradistic stack." Alan Ackerman makes use of this principle in his memorized deck work. Try a Google search for that term - The results will include some discussions here on the Café.

Thank you

I did the search indeed. From what I can understand, the “tetradistic stack” refers to any stack where the cards cycle in patterns of 4, ie Si Stebbins, 8 kings, etc. When you faro shuffle twice such a deck, it becomes a stack where cards are arranged in groups of 4: four aces, four twos, etc.

However that’s pretty different from the stack I am actually asking.

Thank you very much for replying,

Maxi
