Pam pam pam board game
We have created a board game that bridges the gap between school and home activities, and between learning and playing. It provides transition between age groups and people with different abilities.
It takes you from childhood to old age. It helps to move from playing alone, through playing doubles, to playing in teams. It can help children with autism to start talking. And it’s as diverse as autism.
The clarity and comprehensibility of shapes, colours and numbers can calm you down when competing.
Pam Pam Pam board game is built on values.
Pam Pam Pam rules of the game
Pam Pam Pam is a board game in which players must find two identical symbols on the cards of a selected deck, place the colour, shape and value discs on the solution strip, and then place the solution strip next to the draw deck and name the discs.
In each deck, on each of two cards, there is only one symbol of the same colour, shape and value. A symbol is designated by colour, shape and value. The value is expressed by a number. The size of the symbols does not matter.
How the game works
1. Players are given the basic tools.
2. Each player is dealt a card.
3. The remaining cards are placed face up in the middle. This will be the draw deck.
4. Players try to find two identical symbols on the newest card of their deck and the top card of the draw deck.
5. The first player who
- a) places the discs of the correct colour, shape and value on the solution strip,
- b) places it next to the draw deck,
- c) names all three discs,
- d) which are checked by another player, and if he/she judges them to be correct,
- e) then the first player puts the discs from his/her solution strip back on the disc tray,
- f) finally, he/she can pick up the card,
- g) which he/she adds to his/her own cards.
If the solution is incorrect, the player takes back his /her solution strip and the round continues.
6. The game continues until all cards from the draw deck are used up.

Why is our game called Pam Pam Pam?
“Pam, pam, pam” is easy to imitate for children who either cannot speak correctly or whose speech is still developing. This can be stimulating and, with specific development, can help to get them talking. The use of a solution strip and “Pam Pam Pam” discs is similar to the alternative communication tools used by our young children with autism.
Who do we recommend the Pam Pam Pam board game for?
The Pam Pam Pam board game can be played by anyone from childhood to old age. The idea is that players always play with a set of cards that is appropriate to their skill level. So a kindergartener can play with his/her great-grandfather, a teenager with his/her mother, a young adult with his/her friends. It’s true that you only have to count from zero to ten, but the professional series can be challenging also for university teams.
How many people can play the game?
The number of players is determined by the number of cards in the deck. The number of players may increase with the increased number of cards. The number of players is always decided by those present. The game can also be learned individually during the practice phase.
Two players per 7, 13 cards; four to six players per 21, 31, 57 cards; four to ten players per 73, 91, 183 cards (or more) and teams can also play. With the 91, 183-card and mixed-symbol sets, teams of two to three players can compete.
The playing time increases with the number of cards and players, except in the practice phase.
What does Pam Pam Pam improve?
It improves attention, reaction time, mathematical thinking, systematic thinking, ability to control, communication, flexible thinking.
Can you cheat in Pam Pam Pam?
You cannot cheat in the Pam Pam Pam board game, as the solution must be placed on a solution strip, which must be named and placed next to the draw deck. This way there is no chance of cheating.
