You have probably heard of the card game called "Concentration" where a pack of cards is placed face-down and spread out in rows on a table, and a number of players compete to pick up the most number of cards possible. Cards are picked up when two flipped cards match up. A special pack of cards is used with various characters on the underside. The best player is the one who is the best, as cards are flipped and then replaced, at remembering where various cards are. The winner is the person who, when all cards have been picked up, has the most cards.
This fun and challenging brain teaser, thanks to Jason Hood from Rockhampton. has been made into a tricky little computer game. Following the same theme faithfully, numbers from 1 to 60 arc displayed in rows on the screen. It is the task of the player(s) to pick two numbers which reveal the same svmbol. For people who either don't have friends or just want to plav alone the computer - Arnold', sits in as player number two A word of warning here, Arnold never forgets what he's seen, so he's virtually impossible to beat.
Up to four players may play the game at once, and a the end of the game a score table is shown. The scores are determined according to the following values
Card suits. 6 points.
Fruilt........ 4 points
Animals.... 2 points.
Worth noting: if someone out there is called Arnold and decides to play the computer, please choose a nick name or something else for the purposes of playing this game, as the computer will take 'Arnold'to mean it's the computers turn again and you'll never get a go
