        • There are 20 cards on the screen.
        • There are only 81 cards in the deck, with 20 of those immediately played to the playing field.

      • End your turn by selecting the thumbs up button.
        • Your turn automatically ends when the pair you opened has no matching elements.
        • If the cards you opened has at least 1 matching element, your turn continues.

    • Elements
      • The game has 4 elements:
        • Containers
        • Sizes
        • Colors
        • Patterns
      • The elements shown in your current group will light up as you pick cards.
      • To remove a set of cards, they must have 1 element in common.
      • The number of elements in the cards have no bearing on their score value.
    • Scoring
      • Your score is the number of face-up cards multiplied by itself.
        • If you have 2 cards, you receive 4 points, and so on.
        • 3×3 = 9
        • 4×4 = 16
      • You can keep scoring until the game runs out of cards to deal.
        • When there are not enough cards in the deck to fill the playing field with 20 cards you win.
        • Have the highest score at the end of the game to win.
    • Tips
      • Memorize the patterns on each of the cards. If your opponents lose a turn, you can match those cards on your turn.
        • You can use a pen & paper, Microsoft Excel, Microsoft Word, an online word processor, a note keeper like Evernote, or a simple .txt file to track card placements.
      • Stick to smaller sets of cards in the early game to give you an advantage.
        • Your opponent will reveal the cards for you. This will help you create longer matching groups later.
        • Removing the cards will also confound your opponent’s ability to form long chains of their own.
        • If you know where cards of each type are located you can flip over any random card on the deck and know how to make at least a match of 2.
      • When making big sets, use only the elements you know are present in the cards you pick.
        • Don’t push your luck by selecting an un-flipped card.
        • Sometimes, it’s better to settle with a smaller set.
      • If you have the lead you can keep making small matches of 2 cards to eat up the remaining cards in the deck so that your opponent has a lower chance of catching up.
      • If you are far behind it makes sense to go for larger matched sets to score more points per turn.
  • Target Audience
    • The game is suited for people of all ages who like memory card matching games.
    • The game has no adult themed content.
