What is Match Me?
Match Me! is a card game consisting of 55 cards, each with 8 icons. There are more than 50 different icons in all.
One-and only one-matching icon exists between any two cards.
Players age 4 to adult
Party game for 2 to 6 players
The objective of the game is to spot the matching icon between two cards and call it out. The first player to get rid of all the cards is the winner
Preparing the game:
Place one card face-up in the middle of the table. Shuffle and deal the remaining cards evenly to all the players, who keep them face-down, forming their own draw pile.
Playing the game:
Player flip their entire draw piles over so they are faced-up. If you are the first player to spot the identical icons on your top card and the center card, call it out (example:” butterfly”) and place your card on top of center. It then becomes the new center card for which players try to identify a match. You now have a new center card revealed on your personal pile to match the center card. Play continues until one player has run out of cards.
Tied for first (when there are only 2 players):
If 2 players are tied for the first at the end of the game, the winner is settled by having a duel. Each player draws one card and flips it face-up at the same time. The first player to spot the matching icon between the cards and call it out wins the duel.
