Family Memory Match

After I heard about this game I assumed, that is great for family reunions or any family vacation gathering. You should use it to teach children, cousins and other family members names or use to share memories of previous events.


For a Family Reunion ask each family member in attendance to send a person's photograph of each member of the family, family or group picture or a a number of images of them having fun. I like to recommend you get digital images from them so you can also make positive all of the photos are the identical measurement whenever you get them printed. You might also include in memory pictures and people who can't attend.

Now collect up the photographs and have 2 prints made of every photo. (notice all images must be the identical size.

Game Rules

After you have all of the pictures carefully mix them up and randomly lay them out in a grid with the picture side face down. In case you are enjoying on a table make sure to clean it first after which start play, this manner no crumbs or sticky stuff will get on the photos. When you have 24 pictures do 6 columns throughout and four rows down.

With extra images the grid will get even bigger and the game more fun. For younger kids you could wish to cap the pairs at 6 – 8 to be able to additionally assist educate family members names.

As soon as the images are all set the first player flips over a photograph and then flips over a second picture looking for the matching photo.

  • If the second picture matches the first picture – then take away the pair from the board and try to match one other pair.
  • If the second photograph doesn't match the first photograph then both photographs are turned back over and the following player takes a turn.

This can be performed by individuals and by teams.

As pairs of images get pulled from the board discover matches will get somewhat easier.

As soon as all of the photographs have been paired up, every group counts what number of pairs they've and the highest numbers wins. You may also play several rounds and have the first individual or group to 50 pairs wins.

Notice: I've discovered that this game is great earlier than the reunion to assist teach names of cousins and relatives. After every flip you'll be able to ask who's that? After which provide the answer.

Additionally it's great to play Family Memory Match game on the reunion and ask everybody to deliver a trip picture because the pictures will help people join and share attention-grabbing stories.
