Introduction of Asia Pacific Master of Memory (APMM) in the Replacement for the Asia Master of Memory (AMM)

To encourage new entrants to take up the sport of memory globally, the Asia Pacific Memory Sports Council (APMC) has decided to introduce a NEW title of APMM to replace the previous AMM as above.

This title will be officially commencing at Asia Pacific Open Memory Championships in 2019, Malaysia. Criteria to be Qualified as Asia Pacific Master of Memory (APMM) would be as follow:

1) 700 digits in 30 minutes.

2) 7 decks of cards in 30 minutes.

3) 1 deck of cards in 70 seconds or less.

4) 110 words in 15 minutes.

5) 60 names and faces in 15 minutes.

6) 4000 or more cumulative points.

(WMSC International standard)

Competitors who wish to achieve the title of Asia Pacific Master of Memory (AMM) qualifications would be required to compete in all 10 disciplines in the championships and achieve a total of 4000 cumulative points or more, without

solely focusing on the Asia Pacific Master’s disciplines.

The title of Asia Pacific Master of Memory (APMM) can only be honoured in the Asia Pacific Open Memory Championships, which consists of 10-disciplines approved by WMSC. Competitors who achieved the title of AMM will uphold their title lifetime.

The changes have been introduced for the following reasons:

To encourage new entrants that are not limited to practising on numbering events but also the rest of the disciplines.

To create a competition milestone from International standard to World standard.

To grant recognition for a higher standard of achievement, more convincing and withholding outstanding challenges compared to previous Asia Master of Memory (AMM).
