Memory is a classic game which is also known in English as "Concentration". But it's also known as Pelmanism, Shinkei-suijaku, Pexeso and even just Pairs. It is originally a card game. All of the cards are put down with their images facing the table with the backside up. The objective of the Memory game is to turn two pair of cards or images at a time with the aim to find two matches, that is two images that are exactly alike. If you find a pair those images remain on the table with their images facing upwards. It's very simple but amazingly addicting (Especially with all the Mr Eurodisco images haha). The Memory game is often used in quiz shows on the TV but also works well as an educational game, and even as a tool to train and maintain memory capacity for elderly people.

How to play the Memory Game

You start with turning a pair of images and see if they match. If they don't the game will turn them back again -but try to remember the pictures and where they are on the EuroMemory Dance Floor. Next time you turn two cards, one of them could be the matching image for one of the first cards you turned. Then you know which cards to turn the next time. The bigger the board is the harder it is to remember and select the correct images that are matching pairs. That is the core of the game. A person with a good memory will have a distinct advantage in this type of Concentration game. This EuroMemory version which is programmed in JavaScript by (Mr Eurodisco) is a smaller version but yet large enough to be both enticing and addicting as well as not needing to be played for hours before completing the game. This EuroMemory is perfect for a short distraction from work or school.

Taking small breaks from your ordinary tasks will raise efficiency and improve results

It is also proven in science that taking a short break and doing something completely different from what you are supposed to do will raise your efficiency and performance when you go back to your work task or school homework. Don't believe me? Take a look here at the most recent research providing support for Microbreakes being a contributor to improved productivity. But often taking a pause or doing something else is perceived as being lazy and inefficient when the reality is the exact opposite. That's why it is so surprising that you are not allowed to surf the web and play a little game during work hours -it is actually beneficial for both the employee and the company since the people will be more efficient and solve tasks more easily and with better results if they are allowed to take short breaks. Working full-phase 8 hours straight with just a lunch break can actually result in someone working 4 effective hours completing more and with better results than one working 8 hours straight. This has been known for quite sometime now but very little happens out on the workplaces. Actually we have seen a trend to actually move in the wrong direction the recent years with a revival of the time measurement focus in the early 20:th century. You can barely go to the WC at some places without being time-measured and questioned. Personally I love to take a PowerNap after lunch and after dinner and then go back to my freelancing work with renewed energy and peak performance mental state. Show this page to your boss and maybe he will get off your back for a while -and start playing my game when nobody is watching him..
