Why Play Matching Games?
Why are matching games so much fun? Maybe it’s the combination of luck and memory skills that draw us to them.
Maybe it’s the chance to beat someone else based on our ability to recall and strategize.

How to Play the Pirate Matching Game
To play the game, simply print out the pages and cut out the cards. If you’ll be using the game over and over again or with a classroom of students, I suggest laminating the cards at this point.
When you are ready to play, turn all of the cards face down on the table or floor. Players take turns turning over the cards two at a time. If a match is found, the player collects those cards and tries again. If a match is not found, both cards get turned back over and the next player goes.
The player with the most matches at the end of the game wins!
How to Get the Pirate Matching Game Printable
Once your payment is processed through PayPal, the link to download your printable game will appear and you can print it out.
I suggest printing it out on cardstock as it makes it a bit more difficult to see through the cards then and makes it more of a challenge when playing.
Have fun playing!
