Does anyone use the Nikola Card system? I'm looking for some more interesting ideas as to what I can use it for.

Any thoughts?

I have an application for the Nikola concept and memorized deck magic on http://www.joyalstack.com (and it could probably be adapted to the regular Nikola stack).

Well I see we have had tons of responses to this question. I guess the first question is to see what you are currently doing with it.

It has many capabilities although one I particularly like it I use it for Darwin Ortiz's - Zen Master.

Hope that helps

Hi Chris Stolz

I agree with Siekomagic "I guess the first question is to see what you are currently doing with it." Let us know what effects you are performing.

I learnt the Nikola system many years ago and perform the following effects:-

Darwin Ortiz ZEN Master; Do as I Did:
Simon Aronson’s Twice as Hard; Everybody's Lazy; and Past & Present and Future (although to be fair I haven't performed this for a long time.)

Also Four Part Harmony by Simon Aronson is a wonderful effect which will give you plenty to think about.

I apologise if these are already in your repertoire

All the best

Michael

The first mem deck I memorized was the Nikola, but I've long since switched over to Aronson. Of course you can do anything with Nikola that you can do with any mem deck. IIRC, there's a built in bridge hand in Nikola (every fourth card).

Hugard's "Encyclopedia of Card Tricks" has an entire chapter on the subject.
