Give each image a meaningful nickname and repeat to yourself when you reveal the card.

Play the boards in methodical patterns that will help you remember image locations.

Imagine sounds, smells, and emotions to associate with each card – this will help with recall.

Take your time – the game is about limiting misses.

There are techniques – search the Internet for the Method of loci or Memory Palace.
