Card game concentration level?

Print anything with Printful

Concentration is a card game where players match pairs and try to clear the array. It can be played with a standard deck or specialized sets. Players take turns turning over two cards to find a match, and the game ends when all cards are removed. To make it easier for children, they can match identical objects and use a smaller array with familiar cards.

Concentration is a card game that requires you to make pairs and remember placement. The goal of Concentration is to match all cards and clear the array. It is often played with a standard 52-card pack, but specialized sets are also available that feature story characters, animals, or other special items to spice up the matchups. There are also concentration games available online.

How to play the card game concentration

The game of concentration is played with two or more players. A single deck of cards, with the jokers removed, is shuffled and dealt one at a time face down either in a series of perhaps seven cards in a row, with the last row uneven, or – to make the game more difficult – dealt all over the playing surface with no regard for order.

Players take turns turning over two cards on the spot, i.e. without removing them from the playing field, simply turning them face up, trying to find a match in rank, regardless of color. If the cards match, the player removes them from the play area, stacks them in front of him, and takes another turn. If they don’t match, the player makes sure that all other players have seen them and turns them face down, without changing their position in the play area. The next player to the left then goes on, turning over two cards, which may include cards already seen and/or new cards.

The game ends when all cards have been removed from the array. Players count their pairs and the player with the most pairs is the winner.
Teaching children to play the card game concentration
To help children learn the game, the concentration can be varied to suit players of different ages. Ways to make the game easier include:
have children match identical objects rather than objects that have a common feature, such as two aces of hearts instead of an ace of hearts and an ace of diamonds

use a smaller array, starting with a minimum of two cards in each row (making sure two pairs are used)

using cards that depict familiar objects
