Mineral Memory Game - A rock-themed take on the classic memory game. The instructions are simple: flip over two tiles and see if you can match the rock pictures. If they match, they will disappear and allow you to see part of the image beneath the tiles. If they don't match, remember what you saw and try another two. It's not as easy as it sounds!
