yes! i’m a part time professional magician! www.rookus.nl And i would love to think of all the posibilties to apply these skills to performance.

I just read one post on here from someone who wanted to use just like binary memorization to remember the color of the deck. i thought that was a genius idea to recreate some kind of out of this word routine!

and of course the extreme obsession of learning to memorize a deck with lightning speed instead of just pretending that we do.

So yes, and good to hear you are on here!!!

Any routines you apply it to?

That’s such a great idea with memorizing red black for some sort of out of this world… I haven’t thought of that!

Well the most obvious thing to do is learn a memorized deck (e.g. Mnemonica), but there must be other things. There are plenty of pure memory feats that I think can be impressive… especially with cards. You could give a bunch of people random pairs of cards, and then when they told you one of them, you could tell them the other (that’s from The Memory Book).

And I was thinking about ways of using binary memorization and apply it to random tic tac toe boards.

Yep, Mnemonica is cool. But if we’d get great at memorizing cards we can definitely go far beyond that i believe.

Haha Tic Tac Toe… what kind of routine would that bring? you memorize the games, or you memorize winning strategies?

  • of course remembering the peoples names is always beneficial and makes you look better :slight_smile: !

Oh haha I have no further thoughts on tic tac toe memorizing… you could call it a “work in progress”!
