Sorry for the late reply Sam. I do a name spelling trick without the use of a stack. I have not tried the same effect using Si-Stebbins stack but come to think of it it could be even better as the spectator just has to think of a card and not choose one.

Once again thanks a lot for showing me the way Smile

Look at David Blaine's marvelous spelling trick that can't be explained. Hope you can draw inspiration from his performance.
It seemed that he used a memorized stack called "Mnemonica" aka the Tamariz Stack.

I have Si-Stebbins CHASED and a red/black deck. Anything else I should make?


I keep a medium sized box with older decks in it. Not quite hat I perform with quality but not "trow away" by any means. I will sit while watching TV and put them all into NDO then make several Stebbins, several Aronson decks to use as practice decks and toss them aside till I feel like re-stacking. I also keep quite a few set up for practicing the "Vernon Poker Deal" "Sam the Bellhop" "Further Than That" "The Big Deal".... that way I can practice several times in a row without re-stacking. I don't do it so much now but 20+ years ago, it was an invaluable method. Now I just keep them stacked in the box so I can grab one on the way out the door if I feel the need.

I also keep a couple sets of "flash cards" (In Aronson order with numbers on back written in Sharpie) to practice number / card recognition.

If you are interested in only R/B alternation I would recommend a SiSteb(3,2,3,4) instead of a SiSteb(3). It is just as easy to remember (2,3,4 for the 2nd,3rd,4th suits), and because the four numbers average to 3, it is just as easy to get in and out of NDO (you just need to make small numerical changes to the Ortiz thing).

Setup a deck for shuffleboard by Simon Aronson, what a great trick. A version of this trick was just on Penn and Tellers new season of Fool Us.

I think he meant Shuffle-bored (1980) by Simon Aronson.

SamChak, you are correct, thank you for the correction on the name. This is a great trick.

Don't mention it, Geoff. Some word processors use spell checker to auto-correct common spelling or typing errors, saving time for the user.

Simon Aronson is one of the Greatest Architects of Card Magic who changed the world of structurally simple tricks with ingenious design and synergistic innovation.

As an alternative to a full Aronson stack, check out "Jepordy" by Paul Green (on his "In The Trenches" DVD) it is pretty much the same effect but with a "Jepordy" game show presentation.

That is where I first learned the routine many years ago on his vhs tape of the same name. Paul is one of my favorite performers and teachers of all time. Smile

If you can instantly memorize ten cards while doing another trick, then you can perform Shuffle-Bored impromptu. A killer ending for a card set!

If you read the good stuff you'd know that THE EQUALIZER in the TREND SETTER section of LORAYNE: THE CLASSIC COLLECTION, Vol. 3 - is my version of Shuffleboard - NO Memory work involved.

That volume also contains my updating of QUANTUM LEAPS, DINGLE'S DECEPTIO9NS, NUMERO UNO, THE GREAT DIVIDE.
One heck of a bargain. You really do have to start reading the good stuff, guys!

Joshua Jay has a wonderful version of Shuffle-bored in his second Penguin Lecture. Like Mr Lorayne’s version it can be done from a shuffled deck. Unlike Mr Lorayne’s version it requires literally no time and no previous trick to set up. You just take the shuffled deck and begin instantly. It’s very sneaky and has a cool Shuffle Procedure that can be done stand up and walk around and involves 4 spectators.

As a more natural looking alternative to Stebbins, you could set it up in Osterlind's B.C.S, too.
