This simple face memory game not only improves your ability to remember faces, but really teaches you to pay attention to detail.
After all, you can't remember something if you never fully noticed it in the first place.
To begin, click the Medium link under the picture at left. This opens the game in a pop-up window.
The directions for this Face Memory game display in the box in the middle of the game as you play it. To begin, click the START button.
HOW TO PLAY. As soon as you click the START button, the different pieces of the faces are randomized (continuously changed) by the computer. At any time, click the PLAY button to stop the randomization.
When you click the PLAY button, a random face is set on the screen. Take your time to really study the face.
Notice the type of hair on the left side, middle, and right side of the head. Notice the eyes, nose, cheeks, chin, and mouth.
As soon as you think you have the face memorized, click the READY button. The random face you just studied disappears, with each part of the face replaced by a question mark ("?").
Now, click each question mark once, twice, or three times to recreate each part of the face. Once you have rebuilt the face to the best of your memory, click the OKAY button to see the results.
Note: As you click each question mark, the face may jump up the screen a little. When this happens, just leave the face where it is until you finish recreating it.
The face memory game tells you how many parts of the face you remembered correctly. There are 10 different pieces to the face.
Getting 8 or more correct is "fantastic" and shows you have a very good memory for faces. Less than that, and you need to practice!
You can click the SEE ORIGINAL button at this point to redisplay the original randomized face. You can then click the SEE YOURS button to compare what you recalled with the true original face.
You can click these buttons back and forth to quickly compare them. Click the NEW GAME button to start over and generate a new face.
Practice this game once a day, and your memory for all types of information will improve. Once you learn to pay attention to the details around you in everyday life, you will notice your memory is better too.
You have to first really see a thing to remember a thing.
