Description

Live memory game; it’s good to play when there are many in the group.

A participant goes out. The others stand in pairs and the pair discusses a common sign (according to the topic learned). Then the group members mingle in the room. The participant outside comes in and has to find the pairs (like in a card memory game). Who he touches, shows the sign. If the participant has found a match, they sit down, indicating that they are no longer in play.
