Beginning blends and diagraphs included in this game:
After shuffling, deal four cards to each player. Place the remaining cards facedown in the middle of the table. All players should place their cards faceup on the table in front of them and make pairs with any of their cards that have the same beginning blend or diagraph. They then turn their pairs facedown in front of them.
Player one chooses a card from the deck and scans the cards in front of them to see if they have a match
If they have a match, the player makes a pair and says "Meow!" and turns the pair facedown.
If they do not have a match, they lay the card faceup on the table in front of them and the next player has their turn.
Optional Play: On a player's turn they may scan other player's cards and steal one to use for a match for their cards faceup in front of them. If there is no match they draw a card from the deck.
