First you will have to learn the Major System, a kind of phonetic alphabet (see table below). Then you must remember two sets of 52 words (one set associated with cards, the other with the stack-numbers). Finally you must make pictures by associating words from one set to words of the other.
The Peg System can serve other purposes as well: remembering all sorts of lists, producing effects of mentalism, performing exceptional feats of memory, etc. Here also, any stack can be learned and daily training is required.

To keep charges as low as possible, orders are shipped via the surface postal service (small orders in bubble envelopes, large orders in carton boxes).
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.
Money orders and personal checks are also accepted, in US or Canadian dollars. Please make payment to the order of Martin Joyal.
