We are a game-playing family :) We enjoy playing a variety of games, sometimes as the whole family and other times with just two of us. Throughout the years we have played a lot of educational games, as well--if you can learn while you are playing again, that's a bonus! This past month we have had the opportunity to play the game Maestro Mastery -- Explore the Composers by Byron's Games . Over the years we have had different card games that utilized pictures of artists, but this game is a concentration-type game (at least that's what we call this style of game!) that features music composers from different eras.
The game is suggested for ages 5 and above and it can be used with two or more players.
There are 104 cards--a pair each of fifty-two different composers. There is a poster chart of all of the composers for easy reference.
Suggested game play is similar to other matching games you may have played before --laying out the cards and taking turns flipping over two in one turn--keeping them if they are a match and turning back over if it is not a match.
There are additional game suggestions that go along with the listening portion--the "extra challenges." This uses the music and has players identify the era of music or the composer of that music.
Isn't that lovely? Anyhow, before I go too far about this new-to-me composer, let me get back to the game... :)
