How to Use
The introductory templates are used to familiarize the person with the shapes and colors. One template shows color swatches, and the other shows the shapes.
Once the person can distinguish between the shapes and colors, use the appropriate pieces and template labeled top left to start the puzzle.
Add the pieces and template labeled top right and continue the puzzle. Point out how the colors continue in the same line-vertically and the shapes are the same across.
Add the third and then the fourth templates in the same way to complete the puzzle.
For added complexity, any of the templates can be replaced by the black template - this is more difficult because the person has to match the colors and patterns from the other templates with no hints.
The game can be played alone or with multiple players. Players take turns matching the tiles by color or shape
