Review:
S'match spins a new twist on the memory game. Players push on a salad-spinner like mechanism to determine whether they should be searching for a match in number, in category (animals, music, and vehicles), or in one of five colors. Once the search has determined, players must flip over pairs of cards to find the right kind of match. With more to remember for every card, S'Match adds a layer of challenge to the usual pre and early reader matching games. Testers liked the variety of the game and were excited every time a match turned up, even when they were playing the game for the tenth (or twentieth) time.
