Today in the tabletop games department of Walmart, I saw Emoji Matching Game by Wonder Forge. Given that the emblem set in Concentration Room was largely inspired by Unicode 6 emoji, it might be the closest to a tabletop version of this game. But I haven't seen its emblems yet.

I wanted to see how a pairs game might work on a handheld whose screen is smaller than that of the NES. So I compared Concentration Room to other pairs games on tile-based Nintendo platforms.

Concentration Room (NES)
Board: 9x8 cells; 10, 20, 36, 52, or 72 cards
Cell: 24x24 pixels incl. border; 16x16 pixels interior
Scoreboard: At bottom
Taken pairs: Blank

Compare that to licensed games:

Super Mario Bros. 3 (NES)
Board: 6x3 cells; 18 cards
Cell: 32x48 pixels incl. border; 16x16 pixels interior
Scoreboard: At bottom
Taken pairs: Left visible

I Can Remember (NES)
Board: 5x4 cells; 12, 16, or 20 cards
Cell: 64x32 pixels
Scoreboard: At bottom
Taken pairs: Replaced with large picture of a toy

Classic Concentration (NES)
Board: 5x5 cells; 24 cards with some wild
Cell: 20x16 pixels
Scoreboard: At bottom
Taken pairs: Replaced with a rebus puzzle

Board (Winner's Circle): 3x5 cells; 15 cards with 1 decoy
Scoreboard (Winner's Circle): At right
Taken pairs (Winner's Circle): Replaced with a small picture of a car

Candy Land / Chutes and Ladders / Memory (GBA) (video)
Board: 9x8 cells; 20, 42, or 72 cards
Cell: 16x16 pixels incl. border
Scoreboard: At right, including enlarged selected cards
Taken pairs: Left visible

What other pairs games exist on NES, Super NES, Game Boy, or Game Boy Advance?
(Or ColecoVision, SG-1000, Master System, Genesis, Game Gear, or TG16 for that matter)

Twin dragons has a concentration mini-game accessible from the title screen.

4x4 cells
24x24 pixel cards, spaced 48x48 pixels apart
no scoreboard
taken pairs are turned up and coloured

It's only available on the Kickstarter edition though, but yes there's one.
It's based on my first project, Pair the Pets (can't link to NintendoAge project topic, the site seems to be down right now), even if I ended up rewriting most of the code for the TD version.
And the scoreboard is shown when the game is over.

Google Search found a topic on a French language forum about Pair the Pets. The Dropbox link to the ROM appears to still work.

Board: 4x3 cells; 12 cards
Cell: 48x48 pixels; 16x16 interior
Scoreboard: At bottom
Taken pairs: Left visible

I couldn't find a video on YouTube of the rewrite in Twin Dragons though. Am I missing something?

I don't think that people made a video of the "Pair the Twins" part of Twin Dragons.
I could do it if you want.

I have an unfinished version of Pair the Pets using the same code as the one in Twin Dragons, but with the pets instead of Twin Dragons characters. Hope it makes sens.
I should finish it one day and share it. It has a 1P mode, a 1P vs 1P mode but the 1P vs CPU mode with different AI levels is missing. I have to import it from Twin Dragons.

I played it on my Twin Dragons stream, but I didn't archive it, and twitch deletes old broadcasts after a few weeks. (I did archive the rest of my Twin Dragons stream, but I tend to trim off the "warmup" parts when archiving. This was a casualty.)

I was pretty sure you tried it during the Twitch live, but couldn't find it in the Twitch or Youtube video. Thanks for clarifying :)
