--- CUSTOM ADAPTATION --- PURPOSE: To provide a group memory improvement activity at a day center for seniors. The center had requested a large, lightweigheight board game that could be mounted on a whiteboard stand and removed when not in use. The game requires players to choose two numbers from the array on the board, and if the pictures on the reverse match, the player keeps the pair. The winner is the player with the greatest number of pairs. To make the board, a piece of Masonite was cut to size and handholds were cut in each vertical side. To ensure that the board would be stable when placed on the whiteboard ledge, channel sections were added to each corner that fit over the whiteboard when the game board is in place. To provide additional strength to the board, a frame of cedar battens was fitted around the outside edges. Thirty Masonite rectangles with a slot in the top were cut to serve as game pieces. The slot in each rectangle enabled the pieces to be hung on hooks glued to the board in a matrix six wide by five high. A set of fifteen pairs of large, colorful computer graphics with black outlines were printed and glued to one side of the rectangles. Later, pictures of people and a cat involved at the center replaced some of the graphics. Large numbers were printed on the reverse of the tiles as an identification/memory aid. DIMENSIONS: The board is 1100 millimeters (mm) high x 1240 mm wide and 2.5 mm thick. The rectangular playing pieces are 180 x 150 mm. TITLE: Concentration Board. JOURNAL: TAD Journal. REF: Volume 27, Number 2, August 2007: p. 18. PAGES: 2 (including cover).
