Abstract

In the articles on "Magic Spells" (Word Ways, Feb and May 2010) it was proposed that tricks could be performed with a deck of n letter cards. The deck would be prearranged, spelling some word u. There would be a "skip sequence" of integers k1, k2, ..., kn; the more natural the sequence the better.
