People of my generation probably all played Memory with a deck of playing cards at some point, since we didn’t always have the internet to entertain us (wow, do I feel old!). But it’s not just a way to pass time before tablets were invented – Matching can be a way to help kids develop working memory, trial and error skills, and patience.

Once again, PlayingCards.IO delivers with a game called Match Up. They have it set for up to six players, but you could add more to the room if you are doing a group. As with all of their games, the coding allows a non-directive approach with flexible rules. You just create the unique link, send it to your client, and you’re ready to go. You can shuffle the cards at any time by clicking “New Game,” and this activity lifts right from your office and into your computer!
