'Matchr' is a Tinder-based card game that pokes fun at online dating. The game was invented by Mars Incrucio after he and his friends began trading screenshots of their humorous Tinder encounters. This led Incrucio to create a casual card game out of the ridiculous profiles he encountered.

Matchr is similar to Pokémon in that players are encouraged to collect the profiles of lonely singles. Singles can then be paired up based on humorous hastags such as #homebody or #barfly. While the play style is similar to gin rummy, the Tinder-based card game incorporates a bit of humor that will certainly resonate with those who are familiar with the app.

The game demonstrates how online dating apps have moved beyond the world of romance and permeated pop culture.
