Memory Match Game Mechanics
A Memory Matching Game is an old-style, table-top game that pre-dates online computer arcades. It is a popular game mechanics used to help Alzheimer patients in memory exercises . Memory Matching games are the perfect answer toward “staying mentally active”. Even the Alzheimer’s Association strongly recommends “playing games” to stay mentally active! Memory Match games in the modern-age comes in two variations.
- Memory Match (in Pairs) games are simple in nature. In the table-top version, you would layout a grid of playing cards or dominos face-down. Then, during each player ‘s turn, two of those items are flipped face-up. If they match, then you score points and remove the matching pair. Otherwise, you turn them face-down again, and the game-turn passes to the next player. A crafty player is one who remembers what they saw when a “match” was not made, and remembers where items were found after several failed attempts.
- Memory Match (in Sequence) games are a derivative of the mechanics mentioned above; its popular name is “Simon Says” . This style appeared at the advent of the computer age when data manipulation came into effect. In Memory Match (Sequence) games, the player is presented with a growing series of items to remember in short-term memory, and re-play that sequence in the proper order.
