This small box includes 64 matching images and eight category tiles, allowing you to play two games with this one set.
The first, Ancient History Memory, is the classic matching game. The player that finds the most matching pairs wins! This is a fantastic game for ages 3 and older. Your child will become familiar with important historical people, monuments, maps, artifacts, and symbols. This game teaches very basic historical facts, image recognition, and memory skills.The tiles are very sturdy and beautiful. After playing with a very young person, he will be extremely interested to learn more about all the images on the tiles.
The second game, Categories, teaches geography and association skills. Place four Category tiles (the Far East, The Fertile Crescent, Greece, Rome) at the top of the playing area. Mix up the 64 matching tiles. One player says, "Go!" and starts timing. The other player places all tiles under the correct tile. The person with the fastest time wins. For wrong placement, add 10 seconds per tile.This is appropriate for ages 8 and older and requires some knowledge of history. Follow our instructions page for the Answer Key!
