I am looking for effects that use piles in order to conceal there stacking of a shuffled deck. Messrs Redford and Farmer have recently come up with effective ways to quickly stack a deck in your favourite memorised order in front of a spectator. As can be expected, part of the process involves dealing piles. So far, I have thought of doing a simple Equivoque effect, starting with 2 rows of 5 cards (if 10 piles are required). I have also thought of using effects where a car or robot finds a packet or a selected card by going to it. Let me know if you have any other suggestions! Thx

If you use my technique of two deal throughs you can have two cards thought of. By knowing which piles those cards are in each time the system will code the stack number of the cards thought of to you. This way you'll not only secretly stack the deck, you'll also have a great thought of card(s) reveal! I'll post details up on the toolbox soon.

Thx! This seems like a very useful way to go about it! You could do the final reveal not only by stating what the card is but also where in the deck it is.

I wouldn't state where the card is. I think that hits too close to home. If you're part of our facebook group I'll be making a more detail post about the above soon.
