The 90’s and Spades

This is the last set of ten, permanent peg words in the second layer of the system, with three bonus words from the third layer so we can memorize the last suit of a card deck, the spades. Every number in the 90’s begins with the digit 9, and the consonant cluster for 9 is B and P. The word “Spade” encodes to 091; ignore the leading zero and pick the 9=P to stand for the spades, so the spades will come from the 90’s. In later blogs, we’ll summarize the entire second layer, add a couple of odds and ends, and work on applications like card tricks.
