Basti Bär hilft seinen Freunden is a simple memory game for the very young. In the middle of the table, sixteen tiles are placed face down, eight of male animals and eight of the corresponding female animals. Surrounding these tiles, eight young animal tiles are placed face up.
On a turn, the player rolls the die, moves the bear meeple along the "track" of animal children, then tries to turn over the one "male" tile and one "female" tile that match the young animal tile on which the bear meeple stands. If she manages to do this, she receives a flower token as a victory point. If she does not make a match, then she turns the adult animal cards face down, and it is the next players turn. The first player to collect three flowers wins.
