The object of the game is to find all the matching pairs of cards. The game can be played with one to four players. To set up the game place all cards facing downwards with the penguin facing up. Before the game begins, players choose whether they want a player to get an additional turn if he/she makes a pair. If players choose to play this way, it could lead to a very lopsided game if one player is more skilled than the other.
The first player selects two cards and flips them over. The player says the colors that are represented on the two cards aloud. If the colors are the same he/she gets to keep the matching pair. When all the cards have been matched, the game is over. Time to count, the player with the most matches wins!
