Is there a way to find out what the records (ie. fastest times) are for each category on Memory League? I’m giving a presentation on Saturday about the USAMC and will be talking about the Memory League during it as well. People may be interested in what people are capable of.
There is not currently a way to see this on the Memory League website, but I have been collecting scores of over 5000 matches since the beginning of December, and some of the fastest scores I’ve seen are:
11.84s for 52 cards by 叶博.
9.04s for 30 images by Jan Zoń.
41.49s for 30 names by Alex G.
13.01s for 80 numbers by Alex Mullen (Zion Kim, a newcomer, supposedly did 80 numbers in 7.41s, but it’s hard to say how legit it is with such a huge and sudden jump in performance, even though it would be cool if it is for real. Personally, I will remain skeptical until proven otherwise. :)).
43.90s for 50 words by Katie Kermode.
Awesome, thank you so much!
Thanks for that, Florian!
Unfortunately I can’t easily query the database for the top scores.
The best scores achieved in championships are:
Cards: 52 in 16.86 sec (Alex Mullen)
Images: 30 in 12.73 sec (Emma Andersson)
Names: 30 in 55.15 sec (Katie Kermode)
Numbers: 80 in 17.65 sec (Alex Mullen)
Words: 50 in 51.31 sec (Katie Kermode)
I really love Florian’s spreadsheet! I use it to check how my opponents are doing in the league all the time
Does Emma’s score count as a record? We were told last year that it wouldn’t count since the set of images wasn’t one made specially for the competition.
I don’t know anything about 叶博, but Jan is still around, and Alex just has a (hopefully temporary) problem with accessing the site at the moment - people sometimes just don’t get the chance to play on Memory League enough when there’s something else happening in their life
By the way, are the current records (and rules) still available on the ML site? It used to be possible to access them via “memoryleague.com” (without “app.”) but not anymore now that the training site has migrated away from “app”.
Ye Bo is attending college. He is very busy and will not continue to play mnemonics for the time being.
Ye Bo’s speed card is real data, but only once in 11 seconds. This is just a small probability event
