Anne Covell: "Natural Order: A Game of Pairs is a play on the childhood game of memory. However, instead of matching like pairs, the goal of this game is to learn to associate and partner symbiotic relationships as they are found in nature. Players learn not only about mutual partnerships, but also about commensal and parasitic ones in order to better understand the complexity, diversity, and often brutal severity of relationships that bring order to the natural world. Thirty cards with hand-drawn illustrations, learning guide, and case letterpress printed from photo polymer plates on French's chipboard."
