There has been a number of Kings of Cards, the one I think of is Houdini.

You aren't trying to get the answers to a password protected section of another magic site are you? :)

Okay... start reading books on magic. M. Christopher might be a good author to start with. You might find some inspiration as well as answers.

This heading made me think of bit of trivia I've wanted to make use of in a trick sometime. I know it's not what you were looking for, but you might have some fun with it...
and that is:

"The King of Spades"...was the nickname of a general in the civil war, given to him by his troops.

He had ordered his troops to build earthwork fortifications to protect Richmond. All along the 16 mile line His troops complained that they had not joined up to fight with picks and spades. Finding little glory in their service, they nicknamed the new comander "The King of Spades."

In a few weeks, however, he would prove to be one of the greatest fighting commanders in history. For one who had failed miserably at the begining of the war and was also know as "granny Lee" and "Evacuating Lee," Gen. Robert E. Lee became the valuable advisor to president Davis.

Throughout the war he traveled with his pet chicken who laid an egg under his cot every morning.

Quit poaching gags! You scrambled the punchline and now the joke's not all it's cracked up to be!
