Remember building a house of cards when you were little? I was able to build a few layers–maybe 3 or 4–not daring to breathe as I added a new level. However, it was never long before the table was accidentally jarred, or someone stirred the air as he walked by, or maybe the whole thing was structurally unsound….and down the cards fell.
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, Africa, Europe, and Asia.
Most amazing is that he uses no tape, no glue, no folding, and no tricks. All he does is stack one card on top of another.
