Origin and history of the First Matching game

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 1957, William, one of Heinreich's children, proposed to Ravensburger, a German Company, the concept of the game invented by his father and, 2 years later, in 1959, the very first edition of the game was released, called Bilder Memory ®.
Since its creation, this game has been adapted in numerous versions on a variety of themes. Its fame has crossed the borders of many countries around the world. In 2019, the Ravensburger Memory ® celebrated its 60th anniversary!
