“Marathon Memory” – test your endurance, memorising a huge amount of information in 30-minute bursts! Three disciplines here, each with 30 minutes’ memorisation time followed by 60 minutes of recall (recall is done by writing down on paper).
1) Binary digits – 1s and 0s, a lot of them, arranged in rows of 30; score 30 points for a row correctly recalled, 15 for a row with one error, 0 for a row with two or more mistakes or blanks. The world record is a mind-blowing 5040 digits.
2) Decimal digits – numbers from 0 to 9, this one in rows of 40; score 40 points for a row correctly recalled, 20 for a row with one error, 0 for a row with two or more mistakes or blanks. World record is 1800 digits.
3) Cards – decks of 52 cards; score 52 for a correctly recalled deck, 26 for a deck with one mistake, 0 for a deck with two or more mistakes. World record 17 decks and 4 cards!
