Memory Card Game House Rules and Variations

Memory is a classic game that is often used with young children because of its educational value. However, Memory is a fun game for card players of all ages. It can be used as a one-player game or as a game for two or more players.

The set up for Memory is simple. Cards are shuffled and laid face down in rows and columns on a table or the floor. On each turn, a player flips over any two cards. If they match, the player collects the cards and takes another turn. If they do not match, the cards are turned face-down again. Be sure to always keep the cards in their original places.

The game is over when all the matches have been made and the player who has collected the most cards is the winner. In a one person game, the player can be timed to beat his or her personal score, or the player can try to find all the matches in the least number of turns.

The idea behind Memory is for each player to remember the position of the cards that have been revealed on previous turns. It is a great game to develop attention and to keep your mind sharp. When special cards are used, Memory can also help to teach children colors, letters, or math problems.

There are a variety of ways of playing Memory. Often the changes will depend on the kind of cards you use to play. You can purchase the Original Memory game by Hasbro at most toy stores, you can use a standard 52-card deck, or you can make your own cards.

Memory with a 52-Card Deck

When using standard cards, it may be easier to remove half of the cards leaving only 2 of each number and face card. This makes a smaller deck and may be easier if you only have one or two players.

If you have three or more players, or you just want more matches, use the whole deck of cards. You will have 4 cards for each number and rank. You can either let any 2 cards of the same number or rank be a pair, or you can make it more challenging by saying the pairs should also be of the same color.

Memory Letters

When children are learning the alphabet, you can make your own Memory cards on plain index cards. Each card should have a letter of the alphabet. Make one set of lower case cards and one set in upper case letters. To make a match, players will need to match the upper and lower cases of the same letter (e.g. A and a, B and b)

Memory Phonics

Memory can also be a great tool for learning the letter sounds. Use plain index cards again to make your own cards. This time, put a picture on one card and the letter it starts with on its matching card. For example, a picture of a ball would match with the card showing the letter B.

You could also make pairs of cards showing the short and long sounds of vowels. You could match “short i” to a picture of an igloo and “long i” to an ice cream cone. Cards could also be made for blending sounds, or any concept you are helping to teach.

Memory Math

The Memory game can easily be adapted to work on simple math concepts or multiplication facts. For very young children, you can show a picture with a number of the same object, like 4 sailboats or 4 kittens, and its pair would have the correct number (in this case, 4).

Older children can use Memory to work on addition, subtraction, or multiplication facts. Simply create cards that show the equation on one card, such as 2+6=, and the answer on the matching card.

There are many possibilities for using Memory as an educational tool. You could pair up states and capitals, or facts for an upcoming test. Whether you use Memory to teach or simply for entertainment, it is a classic game that is sure to please.
