Doug I’ll let you into a very simple method that requires absolutely no time investment to recall the 52 playing cards. You can actually RHYME every single card (court cards adapted slightly) with concrete nouns as follows: AH = Hun (for one), 2H = wHo (for Two), 3H = He (for Three, think of He-man), 4H = wHore (for four), 5H = Hive for (Five), 6H = Hicks (think Hillbilly bootleggers for Six), 7H = Heaven (for Seven), 8H = HaTe (think of Neo-Nazi Tattoo), 9H = Hine (archaic form of a tuskless elephant for nine), 10H = Hen (for ten), JH = Heart (Jacks all take the noun word of their suits), QH (Princess Di easy enough), KH (Elvis Presley, heart throb). AC = Cun (a unit of measurement approx 1"), 2C Koo (A Brand of Baked Beans in South Africa), 3C Key, 4C Core, 5C Cive (Female MMA Fighter), 6C Kicks (Think of a Penalty Kick in Rugby), 7C Kevin (a nickname for someone who is stupid - most politicians fit the bill nicely), 8C Kate (think Grand Piano = Kate Bush), 9C Kine (old English word for a Cow), 10C Ken (Barbie doll’s boyfriend), JC (a Club, all Jacks take the noun of their suit), QC (Cream - rhymes with Queen/ or Serena Williams will also do) KC = King Henry VIII or Tiger Woods. AD = Done (Think of a Graduate on graduation day with degree/diploma and cap and graduation gown. 2D = Do (Dog Poo = Doogie Doo!) 3D = Dee (Think Kicki Dee in Dungerees). 4D Door. 5D Dive (Scuba Diver) 6D (Dicks think of small wieners on cocktail sticks) 7D Devon (I think of the Fawlty Towers House which is situated in Devon UK. 8D Date (Fruit of a Palm Tree) 9D Dine (Think of a USA Diner) 10D Den (Think of a Wolf’s Den. JD (Diamond) QD (Queen Elizabeth II or Dream) KD (Bill Gates or Drink). AS Sun (for one Spade) 2S = Sue (think of a gavol judge’s hammer) 3S Sea (I think of Durban Beach Front), 4S Sore (I think of a butterfly plaster over a child’s wound), 5S Sive (I think of a friend whose name is Zive), 6S Six (Think of a dice 6 sides), 7S (Seven think of one armed bandit 777), 8S (Satan the devil), 9S (Sign a Stop Sign), Zen (Stones on top of one another Zen-style), JS (Spade), QS (Evil woman or Steam), KS (Adolf Hitler or Sing). Jokers if used could be Chevy Chase and Eddie Murphy. That’s as easy as it gets but of course cards can be coded using either Dominic system or the Major System or a host of any other coding systems too??
