Thanks again to everyone here that helped me get my PAO setup. I’m sharing it here to help newcomers:
I finally finished off 12 new PAOs for the face cards in a deck.
Also, I personally prefer the “card method 2” column… but use what works best for you.
Before getting my face cards sorted out, I tried a half deck or so this morning. Pretty easy, 100% recall.
Then I finished my face cards and tried for a full deck this evening. At about 8 minutes in, I was maybe 1/4 the way through the deck and ran into a problem: I realized I used Tiger Woods twice in my PAO! Once for 17 and once for King of Clubs. So, I swapped King of Clubs to Big Pappi Batting a Baseball. (Since I already had Tiger well linked to 17 in my mind).
Expecting to complete my first deck on tomorrow’s attempt!
BTW: I’ve elected to use 2 positions per loci. For example. The doorway into my office it spot #1. So, I put the first image in the top half of the doorway, and the 2nd images in the bottom half of the doorway. That gives me 6 cards per loci… so 8 loci with 2 full images, and one last loci with 1 full image and 1 left over card image. (At least I’m pretty sure… mind a little rubbery right now… will let you know if that’s accurate tomorrow.)
