About our German Pelmanism game

The standard pelmanism game that you play with cards relies on remembering where certain cards are located without being able to see their faces. This interactive version is a little different in that you can see all the "cards" from the start. The aim then is to match each picture to it's corresponding German vocabulary item.


  1. This version of pelmanism is a one player game to learn or revise German vocabulary.
  2. Our pelmanism for German is a timed game - play a few times and set a personal best time!
  3. You can switch the German audio on or off throughout the game using the telephone button.
  4. You see all the pictures on the screen from the start.
