In USA and England known as Pairs, Pelmanism, or Concentration. But these are played with simple playing cards.
In Switzerland was a domino-like game named Zwillingsspiel with the same roots.
In Czech Republic this type of game is known as Pexeso. The name is an acronym of “pekelně sesoustřed!”, which literally translates to “hellishly focus!”. It usually consists of 32 pairs of square cards. There are thousands of Pexeso sets with different themes.
