Fraction Memory

Allow your friends to look at your cards for a few seconds and turn them over.  The first player flips over 2 cards.   If they match as equivalent fractions the player goes again till they don't get any more matches.  Then the next player goes and so on.  The game continues until all the cards are gone.  The player with the most cards wins.  You can also play with more or less cards depending on your expertise.
