Exploration and Settlement: Memory Game
This memory game uses nine images from the 'Exploration and Settlement' articles of our web site.
After completing this game, you will be given the opportunity to visit these articles.
This will allow you to receive more detailed information and enlargements of these images.
The main area of this game contains 18 blue tiles, behind which are nine pairs of images.
The object is to match all pairs by flipping over the tiles, which is accomplished by
clicking on them with the mouse.
If you turn over two tiles which do not match, they are flipped down as soon as you
select another tile. If you make a match, they are disabled from the board (the white question mark
disappears from the tile). Correctly matching two tiles will increment your score by ten points,
whereas as incorrect pair will result in a decrement of three points.
The table below shows rankings based on final score.
||Score greater than
||Score less than
For each tile you flip over, a brief description of that image is provided in the text
area at the bottom of the game. The image appears to the left of the description.

After you match all nine images, a button stating 'Click Here to Continue'.
will appear in the middle of the playing area. Simply click this button to proceed to the
end of the game.
You will now be presented with a 3x3 grid containing the nine images used in the game.
Any of these images can be clicked upon to show their respective article under 'Aboriginal Peoples'.
You will also have the option of restarting the game and trying to achieve a higher score.
In which case, the tiles are shuffled and do not appear in the same places.
The game loads necessary sound effects as they are needed. If you notice a momentary
pause, it merely means that the game is loading one of the small sound files. (Sound files
range from 2-3 Kb in size).
