 While the principle is commonly thought of as being riffle-shuffle based, its use is more versatile. For example, Felix Greenfield'​s marketed trick, "​Colorific,"​ c. 1959, used the concept of using a stack to force a group of a known make-up, by inviting someone to take cards in any combination from the top and bottom of a packet. See Karl Fulves'​s //The Fine Print//, No. 10, p. 309, for a reprint of this trick. Nick Trost applied this principle to a selection from the tops of two packets in his "'​Seven Card Draw' Prediction,"​ from //​[[http://​askalexander.org/​display/​24788/​New+Tops/​540|New Tops]]//, Vol. 9 No. 11, Nov. 1969, p. 22. This is also reprinted by Fulves, //ibid//., p. 313. While the principle is commonly thought of as being riffle-shuffle based, its use is more versatile.
