So I've recently found this game 'Gin Rummy' on Playstore and it keeps me interesting. Its similiar to Rummy and its got this feature called 'knocking' and that is quite a different take from the usual game. I try to play almost every day on it. One aspect of it is it helps my mind alert.
In the game my method of trying to memorize the cards that are being dealt on the table is to club the cards together in my mind.
For example If a Jack of diamonds is dealt on the table, in my mind I say aloud J. Then if a 7 of spades come I append that to the J in my mind so it becomes J7 Then if a 2 of clubs come the list in my mind becomes J72. Since that seems complicated to me I say Jay Seventy Two (J72) ok, so after 10-15 cards come on the table the list in my mind becomes something like this
J72 Q96 564 KK2 798
since in my mind I cannot write down the list like the above I say it like this
Jay seventy two - Q ninety six - Five sixty four - Ksquare 2 - Seven Ninety eight
Ok. Uptill here it is okay with me. But when the list goes on and more than 20 cards have been dealt in the game I am not able to memorize the cards which have been dealt in the current game.
So, I was wondering - I am not the first person to whom this problem has happened, there would be loads of people who have had this problem. And that is why I was wondering if any of you guys have had this problem. And what strategy do you use to memorize the cards that come along in the game?
