Nicolino, agreed.
I have done that by purchasing GT Speed Reader decks. And I changed the order to BCS. But it is $25 a deck.

I am considering getting rub-off lettering and making my own, then I could have all the features I want. Not certain how long that would last till the cards got worn out (lettering).

Still I would prefer the cost of "The Code" and add the features of Deland, using the methods of Boris Wild like system into a BCS deck.

Can these creators come together to make this?

Anything is possible.

If I had the resources, I would commission Garrett Thomas to make steam punk theme decks using the gears for the clocking system (Deland).
You would be able to see that from across a room.

Make one deck for each major stack - Taramiz; BCS; and Aaron.
Ask between $10 to $15 a deck depending on ROI.

Getting the okay from the stack creaters first of course.

Hey may be I am on something... like drugs...?

Uh, no I mean time to "Kickstart" this.

Pieaddict, which systems, several are mentioned?

I recommend "The Code". It's based on the Taramiz stack, tells the card number within the stack and the next card using the Boris Wild method of marking. DVD/deck set $25. Additional decks are about $13.

If you want to use BCS, then use any mark deck of your choice to help.
Speed readers $25 for example.

BCS is truly a wonderful stack and relatively easy to learn! Currently having it for most performance, along with Si Stebbins and Boris Wild Instant Memorised Deck. Smile

May you live in interesting times.

A red Sharpie and a deck of Bikes is a very efficient, easy, and inexpensive way to mark a deck...If you don't know how, take a look at Kirk Charles's Hidden in Plain Sight...

For the ridiculous price of $12, you'll gain a life skill...

Doesn't that system involve super complicated binary math?

Binary, yes. Complicated, no. It takes little time to recognize the binary representations in this very simple marking system.

The Code is a glorious contribution to card mentalism, but just about anything that can be done with Andy's deck can be done with a memorized stack, any marked deck, and a little mental exertion (not much).

That is sort of what I did, I put my Speed readers mark deck in BCS order, but I would still like to see a deck done in the manner of "The Code" for BCS.
Why stop there, make the deck even better by incorporating my other suggestions of Deland deck method using Ted Lesley style markings.

I have to say I love the BTCS. I think it is amazing just in the fact that it works out, but so many things with cards work out that it is always amazing. My favorite is to combine the BTCS with the marking system from Boris Wild. Man, talk about some amzing effects being possible. It is a great combo.
I also like the fact that the BTCS is so easy to learn and really hard to forget. I can pick up a deck anywhere and have it set in less than 2 minutes. Have done this a few times at a friend's when I happen to come across their cards and then sneak off with them to set up. Grab them later and I am off to the races without any apparant handling or arranging.
The BTCS is truly one of the greatest discoveries with cards to ever be happened upon.

Has anyone tried BTCS with Tarot cards? Must be an easy transition - Wands = Spades, Swords = Hearts, Cups = Clubs and Pentacles = Diamonds (or whatever works for you. You need to eliminate on card, either Knight or Page and you have the same set-up. The values aren't so recognizable to the general public; still, the Tarot might add a layer of mystery. I'm going to experiment. Has anyone else trid that idea?

There are several DIY marking systems described in that useful book. One of them uses a binary system. But the one I use does not use binary at all. It is closer in feel to the DeLand system.
