Natural Memory

From 10:00 am until 1:45 pm

“Natural Memory” – these are the disciplines where the memory experts don’t have such an advantage; it’s harder to adapt memory techniques to this kind of thing. All have 15 minutes’ memorisation time and 30 minutes to recall.
1) Words – a list of random words (mostly nouns, but with a few stranger ones thrown in), arranged in columns of 20; score 20 for a column completely recalled, 10 for a column with one mistake, 0 for a column with two or more. World record is 300 words!
2) Names and faces – photos of faces, each with a first and last name underneath. The names will be an international representation, they could come from anywhere in the world. You then get the faces back in a different order, and have to fill in the names. One point for a correct first name, one point for a correct last name – simple as that. World record is 187 names.
3) Images – random shapes, presented in rows of five – you need to remember the order they come in. You get the images back with each row shuffled into a different order and have to fill in the numbers 1 to 5 to show the order they were originally in. Five points for a correct row, but minus one point for any row with an error (so no guessing!)

This tournament forms one third of the MSO Memory Championship, along with Marathon Memory and Speed Memory
