The game contain 2 copies of 20 different images, in total 40 cards with images related with the Gaia Mission.

The aim of the game is to match up the identical images.

Steps:

  • Mix the 40 cards
  • Place them on a table distributed in rows, all face down so they can not be identified.
  • Each player turn a pair of cards up in their turn in order to locate the identical cards.
  • If identical images are found they will remain uncovered and the player has another turn. Otherwise, both the cards will be hidden again and the player loses the turn. You must try to remember which images were in which locations. *The aim is to uncover all the figures by finding all the matching pairs.
