The Joyal Index:
Question & Answers
Are the items organized into categories?
Within the total of 15,000 card tricks, some 12,000 tricks are organized into more than 100 categories, such as Animated card, Collectors, Oil & Water, Spelling trick, Stapled card, Tunnel, etc.
Are any moves or techniques covered in the index?
The Joyal Index is mainly a card trick index. Less than 5% of the entries make mention of required moves and techniques.
How many entries include technical information?
About 30% of the entries provide details on the type of deck, the use of special cards, the initial order of the cards, the kind of selection, if accessories are required, and so on.
Is it complete?
Are there some errors in the index?
With the first edition of a research project of this size, some errors are inevitable. But I honestly think that the error rate is quite low. Readers who find errors are encouraged to contact the author by sending an e-mail to [email protected].
How long did it take to produce The Joyal Index?
This has been a labor of love since I started it in 1992. And Im still indexing tricks and constantly adding to the index.

New rates of the postal service forced us to modify our shipping charges. Low and heavy weight parcels now cost less to ship. Unfortunately, medium weight parcels took the hit. To better serve our customers, we took half the augmentation on our shoulders.
At Joyalstack.com all orders are shipped insured. In facts, a seller is always responsible for the goods to be delivered to the customers, whether insurance fees were charged or not.
