Yesterday we celebrated the release of our brand new, super high quality deck of playing cards, Monarchs. We have never produced anything like them before. Tonight, we give you a chance to win some for yourself!
In front of me, I have a deck of the pre-release Monarchs in new deck order. Grab a deck and follow along with me as closely as you can. In a moment, I will be mixing the deck up in a very simple and straight forward manner, and then selecting three cards. Your job is to do the exact same thing and come out as close as you can to the same results.
Simple, but not easy. A good shuffle will result in a deck configuration that has never existed before. There are about 8.1 unvigintillion possibilities. Ready? Grab a deck. Here we go.
Step 1. New deck order, ad cards removed, jokers on the bottom.
Step 2. Three standard shuffles, face down.
Step 3. A cut of the deck as close to the center as possible.
Step 4. Deal three cards, face down, left to right.
Step 5. Turn each face up.
This is the exact procedure I will be doing in a quick moment. I will leave the cards face down until I reveal the results at the end. You simply need to tell me, from left to right, what your cards are. Ace of Diamonds, 3 of Hearts, Joker? 2 of Clubs, 2 of Spades, Jack of Hearts? That is up to you and your shuffling ability.
Your response is due at 11:00pm EST. You have 3 ½ hours. The closest guess, in order, wins both a 6 pack of Monarchs and 6 points to enter into our amazing 2011 Holiday Contest! Limit one submission per member.
Play your cards. Good luck.
