Hello Anny and Maureen -
I am so glad to see interest in this new game SIGNMATCH!

I can see the cards laminated (plastic protection) in the attached photo of Anny - great to see you again Anny!

... and that the cards do not show any words from a spoken language. So the only languages that need to be translated are sign languages.

I hope every sign language will have their version of SIGNMATCH -

Who is “game” to do this in your sign language?

Val ;-)
