Topic: Aronson natural de Bruijn 7H 26 cards (de Bruijn)
Message: Posted by: glowball (Dec 7, 2018 03:20AM)
In addition to 3 other natural wrapping DeBruijns that I discovered in the Aronson deck (first 16 cards, first 17, first 20)

I found another natural wrapping DeBruijn (for Hearts and Diamonds as binary "1"s) in the Aronson deck.

Cut the 7H to the top and just cut off and use the 7H thru the QC (26) cards to do Leo's "Eyes Closed if Red card" trick.

Two digit (low to high) octal code for Aronson natural 26 (7H thru QC)
SORTED crib sheet

12=9H
15=8H

57=5D
63=7C
64=4S
65=QC
72=KH
75=4H
76=7H

The more cards the better (better than 16, 17, 20) to do Leo Boudreau's 6 cards taken by six spectators "Close your eyes and concentrate if your card is a red card" trick.

Reminder that you do NOT need a one-way backed deck nor red and blue backed cards using this DeBruijn. All you need is your Aronson deck and the crib sheet and you are "good to go".

You can say that your spouse is a psychic and wrote a prediction (the crib sheet) and freely open up and read her predictions before they reveal the six cards.

If you are doing this trick for just a couple of people you can just flat out ask one person which cards are the red cards (Hearts Diamonds) "so you can concentrate on them more".

enjoy, glowball yelnif

Now that I have found 2 natural wrapping DeBruin sequences in the Aronson deck (that don't overlap) you could get 2 groups of 6 people (total of 12 people) on stage and give the leader of one group the Ace of Spades thru Five of Spades (20 card DeBruijn) and give the leader of the other group the Seven of Hearts thru Queen of Clubs (26 card DeBruijn) and do Leo's "Eyes Closed if red card" trick with each group.

The remaining 6 cards and 2 jokers are set aside (or use some bogus excuse for you the magician to get a psychic reading from these extra cards). On the back of one joker could be a simple cheat sheet for the 20 card DeBruijn and on the back of the other joker could be the cheat sheet info for the 26 card DeBruijn.

Or you could have a funny "ESP Made Easy" book with a cheat sheet for the 20 cards on page 50 and the cheat sheet for the 26 cards on page 51.

Warning: do not try to combine these two DeBruijn's together as one 46 card deck because they would have several duplicate DeBruijn octal numbers and also the end of the 26 DeBruijn does not wrap to the beginning of the 20 DeBruijn (creates some duplicate octal numbers).

The above posts have the sorted cheat sheet for the 26 card (7H) natural Aronson DeBruijn.
The below shows the sorted cheat sheet for the 20 card (JS) natural Aronson DeBruijn.

Earlier post had minor error of 46 listed before 44.

Below I fixed that error.

Correction:
"give the leader of one group the ACE of Spades thru Five of Spades (20 card DeBruijn)"
The statement above is not correct.

It should be:
"give the leader of one group the JACK of Spades thru Five of Spades (20 card DeBruijn)"
