How to play:
    • Each syllable is represented by a card.
    • The goal is to match all of them in pairs, before time runs out.
    • At start, cards are randomly arranged in rows and columns on the board game.
    • You must flip the cards by clicking on them, two at a time.
    • If they match up, you will hear the syllable and the cards will be discarded from the board.
    • If they do not, you must keep flipping cards.
    • When you match all of them on time, you win the game.

Hint for beginners:
    ? When the light bulb icon is clicked, you will hear the syllable every time you flip a card. This way you may learn the characters you don't know yet.
