I've noticed a (small) error in Mnemonica, page 82 in Any Card at any number explanation. If the number named is greater than then position of the card in the stack you must substract the result of the (mentioned) operation from 52 and not 53...

Anyway, it's one of my best effect with one of the greatest book I know!!

Maybe its the translation that's not perfect?

Yeah, I also noticed this when reading the ACAAN explanation.

I use ACAAN plot for my opener (if I'm using mem deck.)

I second Mago Gregorio. This is my favourite routine in my favourite book.

Thanks

Sorry, this book is available only in German.

I believe that you are able to catch how mind mapping and m3d do work only by studying tables and pictures in the book. All card values in my book are given in english expressions. Simply try it!

Feel free to send me your questions und suggestions. Enjoy!

I don't know who can help me to translate book into English or how to publish english version. My English is too poor.

Mind Mapping is a new technique that substitute calculations by simple steps in a two dimensional mind map (an easy to remember picture of whole stack). Every step counts depending at direction -1, +1, -10 or +10.

Best regards
hcs, Hans-Christian

There is a built in translation button, but it seems of dubious quality.

ACAAN as on opener, nice thinking, but I've always thought it a little too clean and strong to have as an opener. Deluzion, do you mind if I ask what your closer is?

HCS,

thanks for the sharing . . . as far as I understood, you did not propose a method for memorizing the tables. Any suggestions would be great . . .

Hi Andy,

in chapter 5 of "Mind Mapping for Memorized Decks" I try to explain how mind mapping for memorized decks works:
Calculation is substituted by simple steps in a two dimensional (mental) mind map (an easy to remember picture of whole stack). Every step counts depending at direction -1 (up), +1 (down), -10 (to left) or +10 (to right).

In chapter 6 are some examples given.
______
So example #11 ("in German" - Beispiel 11):
The deck is given a cut. On bottom is JC. What is the position number of 8S in Tamariz-Stack?

You can calculate:
22-36+52=?

Or you can scan mentaly in mind map (see fig. 16 - "in German Abb. 16, Bsp. 11"):
From JC to 8S are the following scanning steps:
4 steps up (count -4) and 1 step to left (count -10). -4-10=-14.
Result -14 means "There are from JC to 8S 14 cards back or 38 cards forward.
_________

Example #12 ("in German - Beispiel 12"):
The deck is given a cut. On bottom is AC. What card is on position number 23 in Tamariz-Stack?

You can calculate:
43+23-52=?

Or you can scan mentaly in mind map (see fig. 16 - "in German Abb. 16, Bsp. 12"):
From AC you can do the following scanning steps:
23 steps forward is the same like 29 steps backward.
29 steps backward are:
3 steps to left (count -30) and 1 step down (count +1). -30+1=-29.
You entered 8H.
___________

Example 13b (see fig. 17 - "in German Abb. 17, Bsp. 13b"):
8C should be on 41 position. On bottom is 6S. How to cut?

I. You scan -41 steps back or 11 steps forward from 8C in mind map -
1 step down (counts +10) and 1 step to right (counts +1): You entered 9C.

II. Scanning from 9C to 6S:
1 step down (counts +1) and 3 steps to left (counts -30): Result is -29 or you must transfer (cut) 29 cards from top to bottom.
__________

In bonus section you will find the secret of m3d-stack, the easy way to learn a memorized deck.

Best regards

Dear HCS,

thanks a lot. I do understand the benefit of the map - my struggle is to memorize the actual map, as I am using a 8 step system to memorize the deck.

best regards

Andy

Dear Andy,

what memorized deck do you use? Aronson, Tamariz ...?
Best wishes in your struggle.

For those Intrested in The Any card at any Number plot should take a look at John Born book "Meant to Be" which dedicates the whole book to this effect.

I noticed this when I first got the book but glossed over it thinking I might have misunderstood something. My preferred ACAAN is Asi Wind's, anyway--I am not averse to doing the pass, but any routine which avoids it is awesome indeed.

In MirACAAN, there is no pass Smile Not the same method as Asi Wind / John Born, but very good, still.
