There is a simple card game called Concentration.

For younger children only the picture cards or the spot cards were used,

The card were laid out in rows face down on a table and players took it in turns to turn over two cards. If the cards were not a pair they were turned back, if they were then they were picked up and kept until the end of the game, and the one with the most pairs won.

The winner was the one who could remember where they had seen which cards.

I suspect that playing this game helped me to minimise my dyslexia, though it was a long painful process. I won only rarely, though that was perhaps a good thing as it meant others were willing to play against me.
