Playing Card Stacks

These amazing playing card stacks were built by Bryan Berg, who was introduced to card-stacking by his grandfather when he was just 8 years old. The free-standing card structures are based upon a grid system.

Stunningly, the playing card stacks can support 660 lbs per square foot. Bryan uses no tape, no glue, no folding, no bending — and no tricks.

Berg has held the Guinness World Record for the Tallest House of Freestanding Playing Cards since 1992. Guinness World Records also created a new category to recognize Berg’s work in 2004, The World’s Largest House of Freestanding Playing Cards. Commissioned to break his own records on more than a dozen occasions, Berg continues to hold both records. Touring regularly, Berg has stacked cards across North America, Europe, and Asia. [more]
