1. Memory Cards
There are 52 cards in a deck. You will shuffle and divide them into two pairs and flip them all. Now you have 26 pairs of cards facing the table.
The first-turn player will see a random card in a manner that others cannot glimpse. Also, the player cannot see the second card, which is under the first card. The player can see any single card among 26 top cards and put it back as it was.
Now the second player will see a random card in the same way and put it back.
The game’s goal is to remember the places of the cards and win the matching number cards. If a player gets the two matching cards, he can have them, and two points will add to his name.
This game will go on until no card is left on the table. The one with the most cards will be the winner and a more brilliant mind.
