An entertaining game for adults and children alike which relies on players being able to remember a set of 32 cards displayed facedown.

Player one starts by selecting one of the cards by pressing A to Z and 0 to 9. The chosen card is then displayed face-up and the player makes another choice. If the two cards match, they are turned over and play passes to the opponent.

Obviously, play becomes easier as play progresses, because the identity of each card is revealed and there are less to remember.

The pictures used on the cards are four characters in size and include houses, trees, flowers, faces and patterns.

Unfortunately, this is for two players only. An option to have four or five competing would be nice, as would an option to compete against the computer. This would obviously have to rely on a rather unsatisfactory random method, determining whether or not the computer memorised the cards correctly.
