    Hey everyone,

    Yesterday we celebrated the release of SOLO by Michael James. This is one of the most amazing cardistry DVD's ever produced. I absolutely LOVE the trailer, which you can see HERE. It has a very Mission: Impossible feel to it. It blew my mind the first time I saw it, and I am sure it blew your minds yesterday too.

    Tonight, we are pitting you against the deck of cards of your choice. 52 against 1. Below is a photo of the back of three cards. These cards were drawn one at a time, left to right, from a deck MJ was handling earlier this evening.

    He took a deck of 52 cards (in order), cut the deck, gave it an overhand shuffle, and then a riffle shuffle. He then gave it one last cut. He drew three cards from the top of the deck, one at a time, and placed them face down, left to right, on a table. The value of these cards in no way has anything to do with a code or password from the secret mission of the theory11 crew at the USPCC this week. At all.

    Your mission, should you choose to accept it, is to replicate this event. Take your deck of cards, just like MJ did above, cut and shuffle it the same way, and draw three cards, one at a time. Write them down in order. The exact order, left to right, matters. Think of it like combination. The right values, out of order, don’t get you anywhere.

    You may do this a total of three times, giving you three sets of three cards each. Post your attempts in a single post in this thread by 11:00pm EST tonight. More guesses than three will disqualify you from winning. Format your guesses similar the example below.

    6 of Spades, 10 of Diamonds, Queen of Spades
    Ace of Clubs, 10 of Spades, 2 of Spades
    King of Hearts, Queen of Hearts, 2 of Diamonds.


    The closest guess tonight wins their choice of SOLO by Michael James or an Uncut Sheet of Steampunk Playing Cards, shipped on the house.

    Your time starts now.
