Pelmanism is a simple memory game, matching cards by remembering where they lie within a grid. This version of the game offers a critique of the trend for 'animal selfies' in which rare and exotic non-human species are used as photographic props to boost the human subjects social media profile. The practice can be hugely damaging to wildlife.  The game offers a kinder and more embedded way to interact with other species, using photographic posts from funghi and lichen enthusiast groups as hlaf of the cards. The human is absent in these images and the awe and understanding the photographers have for their subjects is wonderful to witness.
