I recently started with memory challenges and I was wondering what the best method for memorizing a deck (or more) of cards is? I’ve read a lot of the PAO-method, problem is that I don’t associate each card with a person. Instead I use that for example a Heart gives me a J (I’m swedish) and then the value of the card gives me another letter and with those two letters I form a word which gives me an image that I can remember. For example the six of Hearts gies me J-J which I turn into a Yoyo which I place on my journey or memory palace. Problem with that is that then I have a hard time linking three cards togehter as you would with the PAO-method. Instead I just put one card in each position. Does anyone know of a way to memorize cards faster when the cards are objects or should I simply make the cards into people so I can use the PAO-method? Is this seen as the best method?
