Tips & ideas

Your friends will be impressed, guaranteed! Another brilliant idea: A Photo Pairs with the faces of all the family members; Grandparents, parents, brothers, sisters and their friends.
- After having uploaded the images you may click on every single picture in order to get to the image settings.

This is to avoid that for example heads will be cut off.

We would like to introduce the Photo Pairs game with 72 cards as the price-performance winner. It happens that customers inform us that they do not have that many images and ask us what to do.
In that case we would like to explain that images with e.g. a shell, an animal or a flower make a good figure on the Photo Pairs game cards as well. Why not going outside and shoot a few pictures, the cards do not have to contain only faces.
- Do not try to discover the cards in a crisscross way, but turn them in sequence. Otherwise, you might waste some turns by discovering some cards several times.
- Stay calm! It is more difficult to remember things whilst being excited - as the experts say; oxygen stimulates, just take a deep breath and try to concentrate.
- Play slowly and do not try to keep up to the speed of your opponents. This will give you time to remember the cards you have seen before. Mainly children often play this game much too fast.
- Pay attention when it is the turn of an opponent. Often one is only fully in the matter when it is ones turn.
- Never turn two new and unknown cards. In such case, only pure coincidence would lead to a pair.
- Better: Turn only one new and unknown card in the hope to see a card, which double you have already discovered before.
