The Aim of the Game
The aim of the game is to win as many pairs as you can. A matching pair consists of a significant person and their achievement/contribution.
How to Play
- Shuffle the pack of 40 cards
- Spread the cards face down on a table
- Turn over any two cards from the pack
- If the cards match, (you turn up a person and their achievement/contribution), you remove the pair from the table and place them in front of you (Check the Information booklet as often as you like to make sure you have a matching pair)
- If the cards do not match, (you turn up two people, two achievements or a mix that do not go together), return the cards to the table, face down
- Try to remember where the cards are so you can turn over a correct match when it’s your turn again
- The game is over when all pairs have been matched
- The winner is the player with most pairs.
