Game versions

The Duettos memory game can be ordered in 3 different basic versions: standard, advanced and extreme. The aim of the game is the same for all versions: the player must find as many pairs as possible.

Duettos Standard

This version is the most common and traditional version of the game. A pair of cards consists of two identical images.

With 72 playing cards you thus have 36 pairs. Because each pair shows the same images on each card, you will need 36 images. When ordering a game with 36 cards, you will need 18 different images.

Duettos Advanced

In this version a pair consists of different images.

These different images can belong together visually or thematically.

  • Image and part of an image: one card shows the entire image and the second card shows a part of it.
  • Two cards form one image: one card show the first half of an image and the second card shows the other half.
  • Thematical pairs: two images belong together thematically. Dad and mum, grandpa and grandma, sun and moon, Tom and his motorcycle etc.
  • Combination of text and image: one card shows a text and the other card the image belonging to the text

By the advanced version a pair or group doesn’t necessarily have to consist of 2 cards. You might choose groups consisting of 3 or even 4 cards.

Rules of the game

The standard rules are simple and the same for all our memory games: the player that found the most pairs wins.

If you wish, you can extend the standard rules. Perhaps some of your pairs are worth more than others or you might choose your images, that some of the pairs form a larger image if placed together. Pairs that fit next to each other get additional points. You might even come up with a new version yourself and create your own rules!
