Play Old Maid With Your Türkiye Memory Game Cards!

There are lots of ways to keep the adventure going with your Little Passports subscription! The memory game that comes in the Türkiye package from World Edition can be used in many different ways – here’s how to play Old Maid with your deck of memory cards.


The goal of Old Maid is to form pairs of matching cards, while not being left with the odd card out (Old Maid) in the end.

Best with 3 or more players, and larger groups can use more than one deck of cards.


Step 1: Deal the cards

One player should shuffle the deck and deal cards, one at a time to each player until all the cards have been handed out.

Step 2: Create pairs

Each player removes all pairs from their hand face down. The dealer then offers their hand, spread out face down, to the player on their left, who draws one card from it. This player discards any pair that may have been formed by the drawn card.

The player then offers their own hand to the player on their left. Play proceeds in this way until all cards have been paired except one – the odd card, which can’t be paired – and the player who has that card is the Old Maid!
