Hey,

I started looking into different memory systems and can already memorize a deck of cards pretty fast (below 3 minutes)
I am looking for some effects that relay on real time memorization.
Effects that memorizing something is part of the method, not the presentation (it can be part of the presentation too, but that is not necessary)
It does not have to be with cards, anything you can think of is great.
If possible, mention the source too, not just the name

Thanks
Alon

Hi Dr Ross
Can you give me a pointer to find out more about "step 3" as I am unfamiliar with it ?
Thanks

He means "Step 3 in Corrinda's book"

Hello,

I do not think that Corinda's Step 3 is what you are looking for. Here having a super memory is the effect, not just the method.

I recommend section 6 of Leo Bourdreau's book Spirited Pasteboards. It has tricks which make advantage of the ability to instantly memorize a binary sequence (in fact - the random cards' orientation in an one-way back design).

Note however, that an experienced memory expert likely wishes to improve the memory method explained in this book by using a mnemonic code that assigns a letter not just to a single card but to a sequence of several cards.

Can you add the source, or at least who created them?

My response is going to be a bit on the snarky side:

A Google search will reveal a lot of sources in the field of recreational mathematics instead of magic.
The best starting point for this kind of work is:
www.mayhematics.com/t/t.htm

For magicians, this video is a good one:
https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=dWM5pKYZCHw

And it is never wrong to read good literature such as...
Roy Norman: Knight's Tour Genuinely From Memory, in: Magigram, vol. 23, issue 4, Dec 1990
Tarbell Course in Magic, Lesson 29 - The Chess Knight's Tour
Jean Hugard: Modern Magic Manual (1939), p. 299 - The Knight's Tour
Tony Corinda: Thirteen Steps to Mentalism, Step 3 (1958) - The Knight's Tour

However - memorizing is the effect here, not the method (which was the original question).
