What It Is
Catch the Match is a pattern recognition game from Playroom Entertainment. Shuffle the cards and have one player turn over the top two cards. Each card features the same symbols but in different color combinations of red, green, yellow, and blue. There will only be one object between every pair of cards that is an exact match using the same colors. The first player to find the match gets to collect one of the cards. The remaining card is kept to use for the next round and the winning player draws a new card from the deck to start the matching game again. Play continues until only one card remains. The player with the most cards wins.
Why It’s Fun
These could have easily become a typical find and seek game, but by using the basic red, blue, green, yellow color scheme across the cards it makes the matches a bit more difficult to find and thus the gameplay more exciting as you race to find the match first.
Who It’s For
The game is for kids ages 5 and up. However, younger kids may enjoy it with co-play with a parent or caregiver.
What To Be Aware Of
The game is for 2–8 players.
Each game takes about 15 minutes to play.
After each round be sure to collect the card that has been in play longer as your winnings.
