Anyone out there use the "memory mansion" technique for better recall? I'm brainstorming how to adapt Dungeons and Dragons - style play to the concept. Does it need to be the same mansion layout every time you use it? Do you use not only sight cues but sound, smell, etc? Does humor make a difference in your experience?
If you were challenged by monsters in four rooms, and tasked to return with a humerus, a radius, an ulna and a fistful of metacarpals, then assemble them, would you remember what an dinosaur's arm looks like?
