Review by Dave Watry
This is a simple childs game of Memory where there are pairs of various pictures laid out on a table or floor face down, scrambled in 12 rows with 9 cards in each row. The object of the game is to flip over one card then flip over a second card. If there is a match, then the player removes them from the playing field and flips over two more cards until two cards dont match.
