This infographic explains the various methods that you can use to shuffle a deck of cards and which method is best for creating the best shuffle possible. It was created by BetCode.
Overall, this infographic does a good job of presenting some rudimentary card shuffling facts and techniques in a straightforward and easy to understand way. The facts that start off the infographic are an unexpected but interesting lead-in to the shuffling techniques. The shuffling techniques themselves are clearly represented and I think that someone who isn’t familiar with card shuffling could glean some valuable information from this infographic.
The organization is a little problematic when you get to the answers of “how to” and “how not to” — the order of information is riffle, overhand, wash, but when they’re reviewed at the bottom it becomes wash, riffle, overhand. Consistency would help viewers remember which shuffle to use.
The design is very clean and lends itself well to the content. The sections are well organized and the illustrations are easy to read and visually represents each shuffle technique well. However, I can’t help feeling that an opportunity was missed to incorporate some of the iconic design elements of playing cards.
The content is well-written and does a great job of both entertaining and informing. The “how many shuffles” stats are a nice touch. It really gives a sense of how effective each shuffle is. These numbers could be represented visually though and the content overall far outweighs the illustrative elements.
This is an effective and efficient infographic. More visuals vs. content could help, but overall it is well done. Rating: C
