Hi everybody,


I know this is an old thread, but I wondered if anyone knew of an efficient way to set up the two decks in Intuition? The trick is beautiful, but the set-up is pretty tedious.

unless I am totally misreading dear old Nicks intent, the reset does not appear to work as written


I have found this also to be an issue, going to work on figuring out the reset as I'm sure it isn't too hard to work out although if anyone has the structure feel free to post or PM.

Hi rosstrainer,


Please let me know if you find anything. I wasn't aware of a problem with the reset.


There's a lengthy discussion on a thread that I started about how to set up the cards in the first place. I think it has the phrase "computer scientists" or "computer scientists to the rescue" in it.

I do not know Intuition but having watched the above video you can do this effect with any two decks that are in opposite orders. There are many similar effects with one deck in mirror stack order where you can get a matching pairs in each half.

Since I like memorised deck work I would just use two decks in a memorised deck order and reverse one deck.

To reset the magicians deck just needs one card turned back over and the order of the cards counted to the table in the reversed.

The spectators deck needs the cards counted to the table reversed and then put back on the top of the deck with the selected card returned to its place in the deck.

Scale down and use the twenty two major arcana cards of two tarot decks (ideally with m***** backs). Memorise a story to remember the cy***** S****

"A young man (fool) goes out (chariot) into the world (world) to seek his fortune (wheel). He travels by day (sun) and by night under the moon (moon) and the stars (stars).
First he visits the Emperor who advises him that true strength (strength) comes from having an army! However the empress begged to differ. Love (love) was the answer to everything! The young man thus went away confused and decided to seek wiser counsel from the High priest (hierophant) and the High priestess (High priestess). They were fortunately both of agreement that true power lay in being just (justice) in all circumstances. This need not mean escaping from tne world completely (The Hermit). Rather it more properly meant excercising restraint (Temperance) in all things. The young man, however, soon fell into bad company and was maliciously led asray by an evil sorcerer (Magician). The result was disasterous (The Tower) for he was thrown into prison to await his fate (Judgement). On an icy cold November morning he was hung (The hanged Man) until his death (Death). A hellishly (Devil) unfair ending to a promising life I think we will all agree."

WayneBurrows, What a simple, elegant solution! So the cards need only be set up once, and then can easily be rest after each performance.


Andy, I love story tricks. I'm having trouble understanding how your story pertains to Trost's Intuition trick. (Also, I'm unable to decode cy******S*****.) Thanks for any clarification.
