Memory Match Instructions

Number of Players: 2
  • Spread the cards, face down, on a flat surface. Decide who goes first. You can select the youngest player, or earliest birthday, etc. Players take turns turning over 2 cards at a time.
  • The cards must be turned over completely so that all players can see them. A player makes a match if the two cards turned over are identical.
  • When a match is made, the player puts the pair of cards beside him/her. The player's turn continues until he/she does not make a match.
  • If the two cards turned over are not identical, cards are turned back over in the same place, and the player's turn ends.
  • Players try to remember all the cards that have been turned over. Winner is the player with the most matches when all the cards are turned over.
  • Here is a handy PDF of the rules for the Memory Match Game.
