Did you know that it was a grandfather of Swiss origin, Mr. Heinrich Hurter, who had the wonderful idea to invent the First matching game? At the time, Mr. Hurter made a game for his grandchildren with magazine pictures.
This game has been very successful among the Hurter family. So, in 1958, William, one of Heinreich's sons, proposed to Ravensburger, a German Company, the concept of the game invented by his father and, one year later, in 1959, released the First Edition of the game called Images Memory ®. In the following editions its name finally became Memory®.
Since then, the Matching game has become a classic of board games. It has been declined in many versions and its fame crossed the frontiers of many countries all over the world.
In 2019, the Ravensburger Memory ® celebrated its 60th anniversary!
