summary

- 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).

Example

value translation (keep in mind that Iâ€™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
