    If you go after one category of objects at a time, it's easier to remember which ones you've marked. "Inanimate objects", "shells", "creatures" and "plants". I always save the plants for last because I find them to be the least distinct and hardest to remember.

    My immediate memory sucks - sorry for the language. I have aced Familiar Faces and Tidal treasure through memorization - however, I am terrible at games like The Frog, The Tiles, anything that flashes and is gone. But ask me the names of the 73 people on Familiar and I score 100 percent all the time.

    This game is one of my worst... I have a really bad working memory (likely from a huge loss of blood once) and so I struggle. It works best when I do not try to work hard... because if I pay attention to an object I have no clue further down the road why I recognize it! Was it there, or was it not there? So instead I use my pattern recognizing skills and look for new and fresh...

    It can be played kinda in reverse as well. After about half a dozen objects appear on the screen, the game routinely offers three new items to choose from. For me figuring out what's new offers a different take on the clutter.

    Several people have mentioned 'color' of the objects in TT. I don't see color - I'm not colorblind - I just see them in shades of treys or black/white. Those of you who see color, are you working on an app?

    I have found a new strategy which helps me remember 30-33 things in the first lot. I only pick things that have circles and I describe it as I go. Stingray circle, crab circle, bottle circle, big circle, floaty cirle, boat circle. Majority of items have circles on them. I leave non circle items for last. I can usually clear the first tide of treasures this way. As for round 2 and 3 I think I need a different strategy lol

    I say what the item is 2 or 3 times and cirlce my cursor over the shape. I use the clock face to seperate the bottles, bobbers and blocks of wood. 11 o'clock bobber for the one that points to 11.

    I group them and name them. Often, I rhyme the names--I have a shell from hell, a shield to heal, and a spike from yike (all of those are sea creatures, but I go by the shape/appearance). I also have some vulgar names for some of them--makes it easy to remember.

    I find that the game gets better as you play. And I try not to linger. The longer I think, the more mistakes I make. I find if I relax, my brain will often choose the one that wasn't there before. Also, my technique is probably more simple categorizing. Beach 1, I often do creatures, although every now and then you have to substitute something else, like a boat, so I try to subcategorize them into beach stuff (ball, pail, trident, boat, anchor, etc). Beach 2, I notice often comes in triples - 3 jelly fish like things, 3 buoys, 3 boards, 3 crabs. After that, I have to branch out. Beach 3 is harder as many objects are the same, just mirrored image. So I try to click everything that is "left side" or everything that is "right side." I also try to keep with the same pattern - all dots or all stripes, or all shells. And, finally, it took some of the stress off to know that each Beach has a maximum of 35 objects. I hope htis helps.

    I say each one in order on each screen. Like: beach ball; beach ball jump ropes (That's what I call that formation; it helps me remember to have a name for the things that look alike). Beach ball, jump rope, fat genie bottle. Also, I have to do that kind of fast to remember the growing list of objects. And I move the cursor from item to item each time - it helps me remember the sequences.

    It's a working memory game - that's all. The fun is, I think, in naming them and then trying to remember what you called them, for instance, "ugly", "little man", "torpedo", "sailing shell", Lisa Kipke.

    It can be fun when you shout out the words, the neighbors may think that something is wrong with you when you do that but its fun

    I think you have the right idea. It's what I do and it works for me.

    I've tried the "make a story with what you pick", or I pick smooth vs sharp looking objects. Creatures vs things. Alphabetical order. Picking randomly and fairly quickly and saying it seems to help me the most.

    I say the name of the item as I click it. It doesn't matter what you call it. There are 3 that I have no idea what they are. I go wrong any time I click too fast when there are 20 or more because I didn't look at the whole beach. So, changing where I look really helps. On beach three, I keep track of branch coral and rainbow right and left by placing my left hand on my left or right and I wait to do these until they are both on the beach. Same with brain, fan, bars, wavy and fringe weeds.

    I've been trying to develop mnemonic techniques for this, and it would help if there was a simple list of all of the objects in the game. Maybe such a game could be a variant of Beaches. They could call it Forests, and show the player all three versions of a squirrel from the start.

    I same them out loud and give the oddball ones nicknames. Then each screen go over all of them and say which I have and which i don't. I also try to "save' some of the groups for last ... such as the crabs or the stingrays.

    Does pausing between Beaches and doing something else help?

    Categorizing makes for an easy Beach 1. However, my mind ends up cluttered with these memories on Beach 2 and 3. It makes me wonder why they keep the same objects and color on each Beach.
