Simple games like Pelmanism (the matching game) are mainly a question of turn-taking. So you'd end up saying things like this: 'Go on. It's your turn.' 'Now it's my turn.' 'Whose turn is it?' We can also use the word 'go' as a noun to replace 'turn': 'It's your go now.' 'No, it's not your go - it's my go!' If she needs instructions you can say: 'Turn a card over' / 'Turn over a card' 'Which card are you going to turn over?' When she turns over a card, you can say: 'It's a fish!' 'Now, can you remember where the other fish was?' 'Oh! Well done! That's a pair!' 'Ahh, never mind!' 'Try again.' 'Have another go'. You're the winner! I hope that's the kind of thing you were looking for - do ask if there's anything else you'd like to know.
