- The number value combination of 2 cards is translated as 1 object (13 * 13 = 169 different objects);
- the 2 suits of each combination are translated as 2 sub locations of 2 consecutive locations at which the object is placed; so every object is placed twice;
- Object X is placed at location X and (X+1); therefore the total number of locations (each with 4 sub locations representing the 4 suits) for 1 deck of cards is: (52/2= 26) + 1 = 27 (= 27 * 4 = 108 sub locations).
value translation (keep in mind that I’m Dutch so you may need to adjust to your own language):
A = i (A is basically 1, which I traditionally translate as i because of shape)
J = j
Q = kw (queen is phonetically written in Dutch as kwien)
K = k
2 = n
3 = m
4 = a (I normally use 4 = k in number system, but I also have K = k)
5 = s
6 = B
7 = t
8 = f
9 = g
10 = l
