Here is the bonus 'behind the cards' video on how I made Monomatch Myriad.

It occurs to me it would be foolish to not provide Amazon referral links but don’t forget about your local independent toy retailers!

CORRECTIONS
- At 06:35 Dimitri Provoost spotted that some of the star and cross symbols on the diagonal red lines are accidentally swapped around. Good spot Dimitri!
- I think once or twice I say "card" when I mean "symbol". I blame too much time spent with projective planes.
- Let me know if you spot any other mistakes!

Thanks to my Patreon supporters who keep me well-stocked with children's card games. And now 101 pentagons all featuring a happy little house.
