I've been super into mentalism recently (bought a bunch of Peter Turner's lectures and vids) and also recently got super interested in the mnemonic stack. I feel like if I could truly memorize a stack, coupled with a b*** writer, I could do some pretty nice mentalism routines.

Just wondering what the best resources are for learning stacks/memorization based stuff, and recommendations for other stacks beside mnemonic would be appreciated.

So far I only know that Tamariz's Mnemonica Book obviously has the best info but it is sold out and super rare.

Where did you guys learn mnemonics? Are there other books I can purchase to read more about this? Any lectures etc.

Looking for the best resource that is reliable and hopefully not too expensive too

Thanks guys

For help memorizing a stack, there are apps you can download for your phone. Many support different stacks, and provide different drills.

As for books, trying visiting Lybrary.com, going to the magic section, and searching for "stack." They have a category with 45 entries, including some as low as $3 or $4.

There are two stacks I can personally recommend:

The Stack and System Maigret by Danny Crauwels
https://www.lybrary.com/the-stack-and-sy......175.html

The Karma Deck by Unknown Mentalist
https://www.lybrary.com/karma-deck-p-703810.html

For a real memorized stack the Maigret system is the only one that has been built on scientific principles of memorization and the mind. Check it out. Unless you are already invested in one or another stack, this is the one I recommend to anybody who wants to put in the time and work.

I use the apps and am looking into some books, but I am just wondering if there is a method besides just using brute force to memorize them. Thanks

@Chris: Thanks! I will look into the Maigret. Haven't invested much time yet into mnemonics; I only got the first 13 cards.

The Maigret system is built on how the mind remembers. While it does need work, it is a stack once learned you will not be able to forget.

There is a whole section of the magic Café devoted solely to card stacks called Shuffled Not Stirred. You will find lots of good advice there.
