Record holding card stacker Bryan Berg to begin build at Horseshoe

Posted: Updated:

Bryan Berg was introduced to card-stacking by his grandfather at the age of eight. And now he earns a living creating amazing freestanding card structures. He is at Horseshoe Southern Indiana this week to create the Louisville Skyline.

But these houses of cards are sturdy.  That could be because Berg is has degrees from Iowa State and Harvard in architecture and design.  After testing his card towers, he says they can support 660 lbs per square foot¯using no tape, no glue, no folding, 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, Africa, Europe, and Asia.

BUILDING THE LOUISVILLE SKYLINE AT HORSESHOE SOUTHERN INDIANA:

Watch as the Louisville skyline unfolds before your eyes with this one-of- a-kind show at Horseshoe Southern Indiana. The record-holding card stacker Bryan Berg will use over 40,000 freestanding cards to replicate the historic view -no bending, folding, taping, or glue.

Berg will put any full house to shame with these card structures. See for yourself December 3 through December 8 as he builds these Louisville landmarks live in the Pavilion in front of Legends. The completed historic skyline will be on display from December 8 through December 29, 2013.
