I like to recommend Memory League to everyone who wants to start training their memory. I wish I could just leave it at that, but unfortunaty I also have to direct them to a variety of other ressources. Very short exercises are fun and worth doing, but you’re missing something if that’s all you ever do. One minute goes by way too quickly for a beginner. Sure once you’ve reached level 10 you can go into the options to practice remembering 50 words in 5 or 10 or 20 minutes if you want to, but you can’t do that unless you cheat or you’re very skilled in the first place. And while you can always try to go faster, you can’t ever try to remember more than those fixed limits. Are there any plans to introduce more options for people who want to take more than 60 seconds to practice memorising more than 50 words or 80 digits? 5 minutes digits or words matches would also be fun I think, and a good way to train focus.
Sure I could just tell people to use Memocamp instead. It’s an awesome resource, but the problem with this site is that it’s too expensive for beginners and casual memorisers, plus it’s a mess full of misplaced German words, terrible translations and frequent technical problems. Memory League on the other hand is neat, well presented, very affordable and easy to use. I feel it could become an almost perfect training tool with just a few added features.
