Sponsored by BrainHackers.com and hosted by a mystery celebrity as part of an ESPN Multi-sport: SkillCon, The Sin City Memory Game is a fun and educational memory sport that challenges experienced players with head-to-head competition and also teaches new participants how to unleash their natural photographic memory.
Learn the secrets of memory and compete for prizes in this exciting and challenging brain game!
On Dec. 16th, students, professionals, memory amateurs, and memory record holders from all over the world will come together in Las Vegas for the Sin City Memory Game at SkillCon.
This Game is participant-friendly as it includes full training in the art of memorization for new players with support materials, so everyone can feel what it’s like to achieve a superhuman memory.
This event is OPEN to the public! Registration includes the SkillCon pass that gives you access to over 25 other events like juggling, dodgeball, STEAM (Science, Technology, Engineering, Arts, Math) education, and more!
Before each round, there will be a mini-seminar/workshop on memory techniques for that specific game. 2x Guinness Record Holder for Greatest Memory, Dave Farrow, will show participants how to get 3x the average score on memory tests, memorize a deck of playing cards, and easily recall numbers, names, and faces.
Practice your new skills and challenge yourself to a friendly and fun competition among peers! Farrow Memory Tournaments pit competitors against each other in head-to-head matchups where perfection is the goal. Even one mistake can lose the match so it is exciting to participate in and fun to watch!
**Farrow Memory Tournaments is a registered and proprietary style of competition that is not found anywhere else. A McGill University study of the Farrow Memory Tournaments showed it increased tests scores and memory in students by 300%. For more information check out the official Farrow Memory Tournaments website.
This event is a precursor to the annual Pan American Memory Games in Florida and the annual US Memory Tournament held at eBay in San Jose.
::NOTE:: The organizers of this event are passionate about teaching memory to students and providing them with the essential tools. The event is run at cost and all profits will be put back into supporting memory clubs and games at local schools.
ABOUT DAVE FARROW, EVENT FACILITATOR:
Dave Farrow earned his second Guinness World Record for memory by recalling the exact order of 59 decks of shuffled playing cards.
He created 'The Farrow Method' to help combat his severe dyslexia and ADHD and this is now a certifiable memory system backed by a double-blind neuroscience study at McGill University. Dave has been a featured guest on Dr. Oz, Steve Harvey, The Today Show, Discovery Channel and many others. Most recently, he won the grand prize on episode 5 of the hit FOX TV show; SuperHuman.

Democratizing Practical Memory
In three little words lies the potential to profoundly change the way we approach a lifetime of learning. Imagine learning something—anything—empowered by the certainty that memory retention and recall was no longer a limitation, that it was no longer a factor in the equation.
Learn the 1000 most frequently used words in Italian over a weekend. Remember every new, important business contact you just made at a conference. Pick up a guitar and memorize chords and progressions in a shockingly brief amount of time. Know every one of your top 200 customers, their preferences and recent purchases. Recall every muscle, bone and metabolic pathway as a med student. Perfectly. Every time.
This is the purpose of the World Memory Tournament Federation: to democratize practical memory and empower lifelong learning.
One of the things that make Memory Tournaments so accessible is that the barrier to entry is essentially zero. Our community is founded on a culture of being inclusive and never exclusive. We celebrate individual achievement and at the same time grow together, uplifting the entire community. Diversity enriches our community, providing a vibrant ecosystem that further propels our members with ever-increasing opportunities to grow.
We are open to all skill levels from beginner to Memory Master. Anyone can join our community with absolutely zero experience and in mere minutes see immediate gains in proficiency and experience a sense of achievement. It is this personal journey of attaining mastery that builds confidence and fuels the drive to improve further. There is something special and deeply fulfilling when you watch someone experience memory techniques for the first time, when you see the glint in his eyes and the widening smile that slowly appears as he realizes he is doing something within minutes that he has spent a lifetime convincing himself he could not do.
We built Memory Tournaments so that any participant can compete on equal footing, regardless of his situation. Learning and success is not limited by funding, access to resources, language or location. A child in a grade school in South Africa can best a graduate with an Ivy League education. Two kids on a playground with a pencil and piece of paper can compete with players who train on the latest tablet devices. The power of the mind and the desire to maximize one’s potential is what makes our community special. This is the great equalizer. Our members excel based purely on merit, with unequivocal fairness, bound only by the investment they make in themselves.
Our community comes together around Memory Clubs. A Memory Club is simply a collection of people who have a desire to learn and improve their memory. It is a way for people to connect, to join others in a common endeavor, to support each other and grow together. There is no restrictive definition to what a Memory Club should be, how it should be organized or how it should be run. That is up to its members. It costs nothing to start a Memory Club and nothing to keep it running. All that is needed is the desire to learn. Two people constitute a Memory Club as much as a Memory Club whose members number in the hundreds and thousands. They can meet in person or practice online with members on the other side of the world. All that is needed is two committed individuals. In them resides the power to effect change.
We invite you to join our community, the World Memory Tournament Federation, to experience for yourself what happens when you unlock your potential. Join a Memory Club or start one of your own. Share in the joy of a lifetime of learning and of achieving things previously thought out of reach.

This event is designed to showcase a player’s performance ability. Each performer has one minute and thirty seconds to display a choreographed routine to a panel of judges and the spectating crowds. Choosing a song/piece of music the freestyler attempts to mix crowd pleasing entertainment with technical execution while working to keep the footbag from dropping. Whoever puts on the best executed show and drops the least wins, very exciting!
This head to head competition is as exciting as it gets. Working their way through pools of four players per circle, freestylers compete directly with their counterparts to execute the best combos which will lead them to finals. Each circle has two rounds, variety and density. Variety showcases a player’s range of tricks and combos while density displays their technical ability to hit difficult combos. Check out this thrilling competition where the country’s top players work to outdo one another to be crowned shredder supreme!
Request is a newer elimination style event where players once again battle head to head, this time to execute two trick combos dictated by the judges. It begins with one giant circle of all competitors, each player has three tries to hit the two trick combination requested of them. Those who hit move on to the next round, those who do not are eliminated. The circle grows smaller until only one player remains. Competing this year is Request World Champion Jim Penske, be sure not to miss this one!
