It’s pretty simple really. There are 16 cards, each of which contains information relating to one of the most commonly prescribed medicines in the UK. The cards are placed down, individually on the playing surface. The first player turns over two cards. If they match, they keep them and go again. If they don’t, hard luck, they turn them back over. Whoever has the most cards in the end wins. A full set of instructions are included in the pack but it really isn’t much more complicated than that.
