What would be a nice addition is the ability to add a randomly shuffled deck in addition to all the specific stacks. I've been looking for an application that allows me to quiz myself on stacks (and yours does this quite well) -- but also one that has the ability to randomly shuffle cards and then quiz myself on those random cards for memory practice. Obviously, it's the random idea is not useful for stacked deck magic, but it *is* useful for speeding myself up on memorizing a complete deck of shuffled cards.

I'm using the Dominic method with a mixture of the journey method and the Roman Room method -- and I've manged to create journeys specifically for Mnemonica and the Aaronson stacks -- but I've also got two journeys for randomly shuffled decks. I alternate between the "blank" journeys two so I can "forget" one as I use the other.

Anyway -- I hope this makes sense. I suspect there are others like myself who are memorizing stacks, but are also fascinated with simply speed-memorizing a shuffled deck (and then practicing). Surprisingly, there's not a lot of random deck shuffle quzzers out there.

Boinko,
If you can tolerate a Windows Application, then StackView (at http://www.stackview.com) allows you to test/quiz from any deck condition, including random shuffles.

Let me explain. No, there is too much. Let me sum up.

Although initially reluctant to try, I have to say that I benefitted from Mr Lorayne's books, and now (after a couple of days learning the system) I can confidently work with Mnemonica and, in addition, I memorized two other full decks. Average time for learning a deck: one hour (still a beginner in the peg system).

It is amazing that remembering a stack is as easy as recalling a short tale. How many tales can you remember?
So much to do, so little time . . .

Mr. Lorayne, if I had to pick only one of your memory-training books, which one would you say is best used in conjunction with a memorized deck?

Gorecki: I've taught how to remember cards in most of my books on the subject (excluding Page-A-Minute Memory Book, and the books geared to students). So, AGELESS MEMORY or THE MEMORY BOOK would do it for you. You can learn more about them if you go to my magic website - 3rd one listed under this post - and click on "Memory Products".

Thank you sir!
Meanwile, I've started reading your "How to Develop a Super-Power Memory" and I'm hooked. I was already using a peg system (which I learned in Corinda's "13 Steps") but your method is much more streamlined and effective. I love it. If nothing else, it makes it easier to create pegs for any number, whereas the Corinda system stopped at 30 -- after that, the reader was on his own with no clear guidelines.

Whatever happened to Joe's website.
