PARKS Memories is a strategic matching game for 2 or more players offering easy and flexible gameplay. Parks are shown on tiles laid out in a grid across the table facing down. Gameplay has 4 simple steps: show 2 tiles; pick 1 of the revealed tiles and place it in front of you; add a new tile to the board; secure one of the tiles with the hiker token. Gameplay passes from person to person until one player or team has collected 3 sets of matching park tiles in front of them.
Memories creates a depth of strategy in player abilities which may be activated by discovering matches of PARKS resource icons when you reveal tiles. There is a variety of ways to enjoy this game. Play a head to head game, or create teams. Grow the grid size for a bigger challenge, or simplify the game to a memory game without player expertise for younger gamers.
PARKS Memories: Mountaineers is one of three editions of PARKS Memories, showcasing the mountainous national parks of the United States. It shows a unique set of player capabilities. Collectively all three editions display every US national park.
