I am looking for a marked deck that is marked with numbers at the back 1 to 52, but they should NOT be in new deck order.

Is there anything like that available?

Thanks!

I'm not sure I understand. What order do you want the cards? You most likely will need to mark your own deck. I've taken (the late great) Dennis Loomis' suggestion to mark my deck with binary references which I use for the Tamariz' Mnemonica deck.

Obviously not new deck order. You can use the binary idea for any deck order.

Wow! I not thought of marking a deck using binary markings. Looks like an extra step to me (and, on the fly, I have trouble analyzing and adding up binary numbers to reach total), but, that said, a spectator would probably never suspect a marked deck.

Eschew obfuscation.

It's actually quite simple once you get the hang of it. Very clean, difficult for spectators to see and discern. (Hint: Dots are placed in strategic places).

Do not consider translating into decimal before adding up, use binary while adding, you know, 0 plus 0 equals 0, 1 plus 0 equals 1, and 1 plus 1 equals 10 (that is, 0 and carry 1).
So much to do, so little time . . .

Thanka Atom,

I curently have the cards marked with dots on the 10, 20, 30 and 40 th cards, but it still takes time to get to the "middle" numbers for example 36, that is why I want all the cards marked with numbers to very quickly find a card say for ecample at the 36th posistion without the unneccesary "counting" if that makes sense.

Is there a deck out there on the market that is marked completey with numbers, or is it something a person will have to make up yourself?
