I've always been interested in spelling effect and will try in my poor english(being french...)to give you my interpretation of what are about these set-up.Not an easy task for me.
The second set-up is the more easy:doing an "australian deal"(that is:transferring the top card to bottom,then the new top card on the table,then the new top on the bottom,etc)you're able to produce the cards on the table in order from 1 to 10(1,2,3,4,.......,9,10).More a puzzle than a magic effect.
In the first set-up you make the cards appear in order by spelling them,transferring one card for each letter from top to bottom.For the ace you put one by one three cards from top to bottom,the card now on top is the ace which you put on the table.You do the same with the 2 and the 3.You ask the spect to go with the next card:he finds the joker!take the packet,turn the joker facedown
and spell four(the joker is the F of four):you find it.You then spell 5,6 ,7, and 8 and put them on the cards on the table.Ask the spect to spell 9:he misses and finds the joker;retake the packet and produce the9 and10 spelling them.Ask for the jack,the spect misses again.Spell it,produce it.Then spell the queen,put it on the table.Spell king,turn the top card fup,it's the king,take the king and the card below it(the joker)as one la biddle.Offer the last card supposed to be the joker to the spectator ,offer him to spell joker with the last one:he misses once again finding a blank card!
I think that your set-up is wrong(just exchange the place of the queen and king...)
I don't like the idea of having a blank card(not very practical)
at the end and propose you an alternative ending with the joker.
For that we need a new set-up:8,king,5,1,7,4,10,2,9,6,jack,jocker,queen,3
The effect is the same:you spell1,2,3,4,put them one at a time fup on the table.
Make the spect spell5:he misses.Spell correctly5,6,7,8;
Make the spect spell9:he misses.Spell9,10,jack and propose the spect to find the queen but to help him you propose to eliminate the joker.SO you spell JOKER and do a very easy double lift(you have 3 cards)showing the joer on top where he is supposed to be.
Turn the card fd and put the joker(really the king)apart on the table.Then spell queen,put it on the table;offer the last card to the spectator he turns it and find one more time theJoker ,The king is on the table! Not bad.
I prefer this version very much.I think the trnsposition idea is Pavel's from a Claude Rix spelling routine.
