Sorry, in Move Zero v2, Dear Mr. Fantasy, and Destination Zero they have the same trick which requires knowing which cards spell with 12 or 13. I thought it would be nice for a list to easily available for those who need it.

By the way Move Zero 2 is my favorite out of the series.

For the sake of completeness:

In Dear Mr. Fantasy and Move Zero 2, the trick is called Dead Reckoning. In Destination Zero, there's a version called Second Reckoning. The book sources list the bank of cards needed, but Move Zero 2 does not. I'm assuming that's why UOwandswinger created this thread in the first place.

Ah I see. Thanks.
Check out Marlo’s Flash Speller. Simon Aronsons adaptation of it allows you to instantly know how many letters every card in the deck spell with. It is brilliant.

BREATHER CRIMP (13)

That could be funny for the final card in a speller routine done just for magicians.

Of course, none of these values need be considered if you utilize the original method by George Kaplan.
