Fun fact about memory matching games
Kai-awase (貝合わせ) is a traditional shell game with origins in Japan. The interior of the shells featured elaborate paintings, often representing scenes from traditional Japanese literature. The aim of the game was to find the other half that would fit. Many games were later developed based on it.

Match the cards
When you open two cards, they will be checked for possible matches. If they are the same, matched cards will be cleared from the board and you can continue playing with the cards that are left on the board.

Benefits of playing memory game like memory match
While there is a lot of research done on the benefits of playing memory games, sometimes it’s best to not over explain it and keep it simple. To win any Pairs game, you need to develop a strategy. You need to use your short-term memory and improve visual recognition.
A good short-term memory can have an influence on the long term as well. With every move you are trying to keep information in your brain while planning what card to pick next. And then when you match the pair, you get some new information (hint) that can be an interesting fact you didn't know before, or you knew about it but forgot.
So, to keep it simple it's a fun game with no flashy graphics and no need for your credit card as the best way to protect your data is to keep it for yourself.
