WHY THIS STACK TRAINER APP?

I’ve been searching for the perfect Stack Trainer app for a long time, something that was engaging, made me want to learn, and something that actually worked. So, after wasting time and money on other apps I decided to make my own, built with everything I wanted that the other apps simply did not provide.

FUN AND ADDICTING

The Ultimate Stack Trainer is not actually a “trainer”… it is a game. I realized I liked playing games like Candy Crush and Dots, and if I could make learning the order of a deck of cards as addicting as these games I would be more likely to stick with it.

You start out on Level 1 which presents you with a card, 4 possible answers as to what number in the stack the card is, 3 lives, and 30 seconds. Each time you match the card with the correct number you get a point.

(As you go on to different levels the questions change format... read below)

10 Points to move to the next level and you get 1 star
13 Points is 2 stars
16 Points is 3 stars


LEARNING IN CHUNKS

The game is broken up into 7 stages with 8 levels each:

Stage 1: Cards 1- 13
Stage 2: Cards 14-26
Stage 3: Cards 1- 26
Stage 4: Cards 27-39
Stage 5: Cards 39- 52
Stage 6: Cards 27-52
Stage 6: Cards 1-52

This is because breaking a stack into bite sized chunks will maximize your ability to learn it quickly and retain the knowledge.

MIX UP LEARNING METHODS

Each stage has 8 levels, each with a different way to learn the stack. When you mix up how to learn this accomplishes two things…

1. It keeps you interested
2. It prepares you for real world situations


LEVELS 1, 2, AND 3: THE BASICS

These are the basic “what card is what number” and “what number is what card” multiple choice questions. If you get an answer wrong it will show you what the right answer is. Using this method you should be able to memorize each set in about 15-20 minutes. These levels are perfect for learning the basics.

LEVELS 4, 5, AND 6: WHAT COMES BEFORE AND WHAT COMES AFTER

Other trainers gave you the option to choose what number is what card and what card is what number… In real world scenarios you need to know what comes after and what comes before a card on the bottom or the top of the deck. So Three levels are dedicated to just having you answer what comes next or what comes before. These levels are perfect for cementing the basics and improving speed.

LEVEL 7: NO MORE MULTIPLE CHOICE

At this point our minds start to get used to multiple choice. In the real world there we do not get 4 options to choose from, we have to KNOW what number the card is. On this level you there is no multiple choice, you type in the number the card shown is.

LEVEL 8: PUTTING IT ALL TOGETHER

Level 8 mixes all of the techniques together to test your mastery of the stage.


MASTER YOUR STACK

If you get 3 stars on every level, I guarantee that you will have mastered your stack to the point where you don’t even have to think “what number is this card” or “what is after the 3 of hearts” when you are performing in the real world. You will just know…

Great for any Magician looking to learn Mnemonica, Aronson, Si Stebbins, Osterlind, 8 Kings, Joyal, or any other stack imaginable.
