Puzzle #113: Magic Arrangement of Cards

This is a puzzle I have known for a very long time, and do not remember who asked me, I probably did it when I must have been around 15 years old. I loved this puzzle of cards. Unlike other puzzles, this requires me to show a video, which I have uploaded on YouTube.

Take out all the cards of one single suite in a pack of 52 cards e.g. take out all the cards of spade (13 cards). Your task is to arrange them in a order (face down) so that if you move the top card at the bottom of the pack and then put down face up the card that shows up next, and continue this in a sequence, then you will get all the cards from A, 2, 3, …., K.

To demonstrate what I am talking about, please look at the following video:

Please send your answers either directly on the blog site as comments, or to me at alokgoyal_2001@yahoo.com. If you like the puzzle, please share it with others. If you have interesting puzzles to share, please send them to me at my e-mail given above.

Happy arranging!
