Board game for children and family
In the exhibition European Art 1300-1800 you can play Match-SMK. A board game for the entire family – specifically children between the ages of 6 to 10. The game is about telling good stories that take art as their starting point.
What is the game about?
The game consists of a lot of images that players match up against one of the large paintings on the walls; after this each player will tell a story about how the pictures are connected or fit together. There are no right or wrong answers, and that is the whole point of the game.
”Of course each painting has its own story, but the objective of this game is to make children and adults present their own interpretation of what they see. And in fact we often see that the children are better storytellers than their parents,” says the managing director of Tankespil, Jeppe S. Christensen.
Match-SMK was created in co-operation with the games developers Tankespil. The furniture was designed by Anna Hedvig Braat and Pernille Jensen.
