Jumper cards… You know these: they’re the ones that leap out of the deck while you’re trying to shuffle, sometimes literally smacking you right in the face. The cynic would say that jumper cards are just a sign of shabby card-handling, nothing more. Others feel that these cards are popping out for a reason…like, they … More Your Word Is Your Wand
