The goal of this game is to teach kids about compression and patterns, encoding pixels as numbers, then finding patterns in those numbers. My daughter's favorite anime is Naruto, so we used symbols from it as examples of images. The first 10 or so cards explain the concepts of "pixels" (which in this case are just ascii symbols), encoding them as numbers, runlength encoding and also averaging multiple "pixels", but its only so much that can fit in ~1000 characters, so its better if the parent undestands the concepts well and can show more examples of compression and patterns in day-to-day life (e.g. encoding the flag of your country, or black and white versus colored images and etc).

Its more of a puzzle than an actual game, but I think it conveys the concept of compression and encoding really well.
