pexeso - Play the pexeso game


pexeso [columns rows]

Where columns is the number of columns to use and rows the number or rows.


Play the pexeso game a simple and educational mind game with a Perl variant! In this version the cards are downloaded directly from the internet and are displaying your favorite CPAN contributer (a.k.a Perl hacker).


A deck of shuffled cards where each card appears twice is placed in front of you with the cards facing down so you can see which card is where. The idea is to match the pairs of cards until there are no more cards available.

At each turn you are allowed to flip two cards. If the two cards are identical then the pair is removed otherwise the card are flipped again so you can't see them. You are allowed to remember the cards positions once you have seen them, in fact that's the purpose of the game! You continue flipping pairs of cards until you have successfully matched all cards.
