Speaking of marked decks: stay tuned for a new marking system being published these days - it's an extremely clever approach for those who don't have eagle eyes or need to work at low light conditions.

It's possible to code so much (predecessor card, successor card, stack number etc.) with only a few marks, it's almost scary! Smile

The new marking system being published these days is my "Low Vision Marking System". The "Low Vision Marking System" is applied to the Bicycle Rider Back 808 deck.

A Sharpie and a Bicycle Rider Back 808 deck is a very efficient and inexpensive way to mark a deck for your needs ...
even you have less than perfect vision or need glasses.

A blockout toolbox for marking cards has been developed. The marked deck can be prepared in less than one hour. The development focused on good discernibility for magicians with impaired vision. By combining the described methods, it is possible to mark the card itself, its stack number, the preceding and the succeeding cards.

Also check Pete McCabe's PM Card Marking System. A great 70+ page book with an easily viewed but deceptive marking system using a sharply. Additionally there are tons of great routines. Smile

Richard Osterlind's BCS is NOT a marked deck. You will have you read it through to fully understand this miracle of a discovery. The 30 years Osterlind spent figuring out this system is just... out of this world.

I suspect that most people here know that the BCS is a full-deck, sequential stack; they are just making the observation that there exists a range of additional material that can be performed if such a stack is also marked.

Its a great system, lots of potential. Sorry for late reply. My real world job takes up too much of my time.

IMHO, this is the best algorithmic stack out there.

Hi Nicolino, you are absolutely right, my friend.

Probably what I meant (if I can recollect right) to say was - the BCS is the best (or most random looking) cyclical stack, imo, which uses an algorithm/formula.

Thank you for pointing it out Smile

Jerry,

The Dynamo Deck was the predecessor to the BCS. But, in truth, they are different in purpose. Yes, some routines can be done with either, but each has its own designated use. I still use the BCS all the time.

Since the topic came up earlier, the Memorized BCS, as well as instructions on working it backwards, can be found in Mystique.

Thanks for the BCS, Richard. I am a hobbyist and am able to use it - loved the Mind Mysteries DVD. BCS ideas that both the novice and expert can understand. Loved it, just wanted to mention, appreciate you presenting to the full range of us!
