How to Play a Memory Matching Game
Lay the cards face down on a table.
The first player flips over two cards. If he or she made a match, they keep the cards. If they didn’t, flip the cards back over…but don’t move them! Now the next player flips over two cards…and so on.
The winner is the person with the most cards.
