How to Play the Memory Matching Game
Shuffle the prepared cards well and spread them face down across the table.
Players take turns to turn over two cards, searching for a matching pairs of pictures.
If the cards selected are a match, the player keeps the matching pair and takes another turn. If they are not the same, the cards are turned back over in the same location and play moves to the next player.
Once all cards have been matched, the player with the most matching card pairs wins the game.
