I have recently published an exposition and series of card effects based on what I call the StayCard Principle. This principle identifies certain interesting and useful regularities that occur when cards are dealt successively into various numbers of hands.

http://www.lybrary.com/ocd-and-other-effects-p-330506.html

The StayCard Principle is related to Marty Kane's Status Quo Principle (SQP) which has been used in card effects such as his own "Magic Underground" (in Cyber Sessions, 1999) as well as in Peter Duffie's "Calling Cincinnati" (in Cards Insight, 2000). However, while the SQP uses down-under / under-down deals, StayCard uses regular dealing.

I would like to draw up a more extensive catalogue of effects that use the SQP or StayCard Principle and, if anyone can help with this, I'd be grateful if you could let me know the publication details.

I would also like to hear from anyone who develops their own novel routines which use the StayCard Principle.

Thanks,

Mike

Dear Michael,

You may find my idea of a hidden staystack interesting. See: http://www.themagiccafe.com/forums/viewt......orum=205

Kind thoughts,

Thanks Ferry - it's a very interesting concept. Unfortunately my faro shuffles aren't reliable enough to make this practical for me, though I can manage effective false shuffles.
