Finding a perfect match

11th March 2005 at 00:00
There are 54 cards, each with a different image, in Symmetry Lotto. As in the traditional game, six players share them out and have to match them with the pictures on their plastic board. In this version of the game only half the image is shown and young children may need to use a mirror (provided) to work out what goes with what. The boards are arranged in broad themes. Transport silhouettes and creatures such as tigers may not prove too difficult, but abstract shapes such as flags offer more of a problem. Faces may require some close scrutiny. Symmetry Lotto costs pound;12.50 from Economatics.
