A New 2-Card System




But, to be clear, you do that or use the alternate/shadow images.

Any chance I can get half a deck example on this please?

I just finished watching Nelson Dellis interview the World Champion. They spoke about his card system and I have a better understanding of the Shadow System. It seems very complex!
Especially when attempting multiple decks.

Boooring … we want a Youtube video explaining this system :slight_smile:

(Badr Ibrahim) #65

I’ve done it…
I’ve just understand 70!% of this system :slight_smile:

(Johnny Mnemonic) #66

Really? You’re a whole lot further than I am. From what I gather there’s two
two separate journeys and something that looks like this:1=#:spades:#:heart:-T,D/#:heart:#:spades:-T,D

But I don’t understand how it’s organized. Not until I see how the whole system is used. Right now it doesn’t make logical sense. I’d like to see an example of maybe half of a deck being memorized. I’ve read what a great a system it is and I’d like to give it a try.


It makes perfect logical sense.

The post shows two different ways of achieving the same goal - memorising two cards with half the images of a Ben system.

With Hannes method, you change loci depending on the suits of the card pair. With Lance’s method you use your original image or a shadow image depending on the suits.

Im not sure where youre getting two journeys from?

I think I misinterpreted the “2 block method” to mean something else.
" will memorize cards in blocks of two, with each block being just one image.
Each two card pair will be matched with another one, one that has the exact opposite suits(For example 2h+8h will be matched with 2s+8h)"
Okay so #h+#h comes up,do I wait for the next available #s+#h to come up? And if it’s #c+#d?
I’m willing to accept a 10 card example at this rate!

(Johnny Mnemonic) #69

This helps though:


I watched that video the other day. The vibe I got was “we don’t have all day – just…talk to Lance about it.”

How cool is it that post #33 in this thread is Alex Mullen saying “Lance, you won me over. I’m going to do this.”

A little piece of history.

Graham’s doing a great job holding down the fort here. You’re clear as crystal :slight_smile:

Johnny, from all you’ve said, I only see one question that looks present and unanswered, and that is this:

“Okay so #h+#h comes up,do I wait for the next available #s+#h to come up? And if it’s #c+#d?”

Unfortunately, this question doesn’t make any sense. :frowning:

Do you want to try again?


I found the Ben System worksheet and it has 3 digit numbers associated with specific card pairs. Do those numbers associate with the same card pairs as the shadow system?

1352 two card system can be issued to all the combinations?

(Honje Watanabe) #73

I need a list of all 1352 two card system combinations. Can be issued to look at it?

Sorry, I do not understand the combination of two card system. Hope you can issue a list below

Hope I can help you


I just finished learning my 3 digit system and I fully understand the Shadow System as well, however I am stuck with naming some of the 360 Extra Card Images.

Do you have any advice that could help me out?

(Adrián García) #79

Thank you very much Lance for the explanation. And special thanks to Johannes Mallow, his idea is of using locis that ways is genious!!
