I’m surprised that there aren’t any holiday games in here yet. I’m sure we’ll see more of these as the month goes on.
We’re covering a lot of the basics here: language, math, geology, civics. If you used all of these new games this week, you’d probably wind up with a pretty solid education. 🙂
In general, pictures are best shown either horizontally or vertically. Pictures of people are usually shot in the “portrait” orientation, while most other photos are generally taken in “landscape” orientation. That’s why we built Match The Memory to default a game’s cards to the Landscape layout, with the option of switching them to Portrait. This lets you have your images as big as possible on your cards. (Pro tip: if more of your cards are vertical than horizontal, we suggest that you change that game to Portrait.)
However, sometimes you have a picture that doesn’t really fit either Landscape or Portrait. Whether it’s a drawing of an atom or your latest Instagram selfie, sometimes you need a square. That’s why we just added a new Square layout option to Match The Memory.
In addition to possibly fitting your images better, Square cards are bigger — the same height as Portrait cards and the same width as Landscape cards.
Try out the new Square orientation on a new or existing custom memory game. Let us know about specific games that you think are better having square cards rather than horizontal or vertical ones.
Celebrate the month of May with a free PDF download of your game. From May 1 to May 31, 2010, you can get a free version of your personalized memory game to print at home. It’s our way of saying thank you to our fans, and a little encouragement to create more custom games on Match the Memory.
Have fun, and enjoy a free PDF download on us!
