A Weird Aggressive Memory Game.

  • In this competitive memory game, players Try to reveal 2 matching cards among spread out face-down cards, then impose “curses” on other players.
  • The winner is the player with the least curses, not the most cards acquired.


  • Players take turns to flip to reveal 2 cards. If they match, the player takes them.
  • Players each have one of five attributes (wood, fire, earth, gold and water) and move Curse chips (negative points) toward other players’ attribute areas on the board.
  • The players who receive 4 Curse chips are eliminated from the game, and the game ends when everyone except one player is eliminated or when the cards run out.
  • The player with the least Curse chips wins. (In case of a tie, the tied player with more acquired cards wins.)
