How to Play
Egg-cidental is a picture matching game. Each player gets a game board and a deck of 16 egg-like
cards. One suit has piano keys and the other the names of matching accidentals. Place cards randomly
suit down on the game board. Start by revealing any two cards. If both cards are showing the
same accidental, they are removed from the board, otherwise, they are turned back off. The game
ends when there are no more cards to reveal. The student can play alone, with a teacher or another
Winning the Game
The winner is the person who matched all accidentals to their keys or gets more matching pairs.
