Pirate Memory Game (free printable)

Like What You See? Tell Your Friends!

Ahoy me hearties! Have fun year-round, or on Talk Like a Pirate Day (September 19th) with our free printable pirate memory game.

We love playing memory games in our home, and as a really young child, my son has managed to beat me! We still love to play memory games now, mainly because he loves to win! But this is a fun game for the whole family.

There are 12 different images to print out, which is perfect for older toddlers and preschoolers.

The kids are also going to enjoy our free pirate coloring pages.

Pirate Matching Game

Supplies needed:

  • cardstock (normal paper will work, but you might be able to see the images through it)
  • paper cutter or scissors


Download the pirate memory game printable below. There is one page included with 12 different images and it will print out in portrait. Make sure to check the printer settings.

You will need to print the page twice, so you can match the images.

When you have printed the 2 pages, you will need to cut out all of the different images. I prefer to use a paper cutter as it’s easier, quicker, and more accurate, but scissors will work too.

Now you will have two sets of 12 images (so 24 total images.)

Shuffle them up and lay them on the table face down in rows to make it easier, or just randomly on the table for older kids.

If you are placing them in rows I find 4 rows with 6 images each works best for the memory game.

Playing the game is simple. Take it in turns to turn over only 2 images. If it is a match you can either remove them from the game and place them in front of you or leave them turned over face up.

The winner is the person who creates the most matches.
