The ABCZ Memory Game (Pexeso) is based on ABCZ or All You Need to Know about Czechia and the Czechs, an illustrated bilingual ABC book of Czech life and culture. Composed of pictures, memories and impressions of Bohemia and Moravia, this personal mosaic offers a multi-faceted image of Czech identity.

 While the book has 257 headwords, for the card game we have chosen only one for each letter: in English (the letters are of course different) these are: abstraction, colour piano, sugar, devil, brass band, exile, film, Golem, Antonín Holý, cottage and cabin, invasion, Ještěd, cycle ball, puppets, carnival, football tennis, department store, Vincenc Priessnitz, robot, Ř, Semafor, Švejk, Tatra, underground, Velorex, Jindřich Waldes, Zetor, Iron Curtain.

Pexeso therefore contains 28 pairs (56 black and white playing cards) and staples with explanations of what is on the cards, one in Czech and the other in English. The cards are simultaneously stacked in arbitrarily connected patterns, with at least one line on each side always connected.
