Perhaps the games levels should be limited to 4x4, 6x6, and 8x8 so that they are all even numbers? 8x8 would be quite the challenge, and most of the demos probably don't have enough questions to fill that sized grid just now (fairly easy to extend them). Would need to run some testing on XO-1 hardware to make sure memory usage is not a problem.

As some have noted already the number of cards has the base 2. FWIW, I
use Memory in my class quite often and so far no learner has been
confused by the simplification we use in the view.
As Mitch suggested one could use as well placeholders cards. But imagine
you have 11 Pairs and select a 5x5 grid. You would need 3 placeholders
cards. I do think that can be more confusing.
