Hi, I have learned to memorize a deck of cards with each card representing one object. The words are based off the phonetic alphabet (major system). The first consonant sound of the object corresponds to the suit, then for A-10 the other consonant sound is that from the major system for the number (e.g. Ace is t/d, 2 is n, … then 10 is s/z). For jacks, the object is just the suit (I picture a diamond, or club, etc.)
I then link each object to the next via two at a time linking (Harry Lorayne’s method). If picking out where exactly a card lies in the deck, I’ll link each object to its Peg word.
I haven’t practiced this much yet, but upon reading more it looks like a lot of people use a person-action-object method to memorize cards. Is that more efficient, or is object to object linking still just as good?
