  • 1. When you say the word 'deck,' you invoke Shakespeare. In 1593, William Shakespeare coined the term deck in his play Henry VI. In a line by the character Gloster, he remarked, "But, whiles he thought to steal the single ten, The king was slily finger'd from the deck!"
  • 2. Ben Franklin did card tricks. Well, at least one card trick. In 1749, Benjamin Franklin printed the first card trick in the thirteen colonies called "The Impenetrable Secret." We find advertisements for it in his newspaper, The Pennsylvania Gazette.

Cool, right? That's just the beginning. Do you want more awesome conversation starters like these? This brand new 100-page timeline book and bonus video talk is for you.
