My husband came up with this variant to make the game a little harder:

Flip over three cards, and the first person to find all the matches between the three cards calls them out and takes the cards. The one with the most cards at the end of the game wins.

Try this with four cards instead. Find all matches between the four cards for a total of 6 matches for an ever greater challenge. We didn't try this as the 3 card version was challenging enough for us.

Wow, that sounds really tough! How long did this way take to play? Did you go through the whole deck?

A bit late I know.... but....

Surely there is a chance that not all 3 cards will all include the same icon on them?

It doesn't matter whether the 3 cards all include the same icon. The point is to identify the common icon between cards A & B, and the common icon between cards B & C, and the common icon between cards A & C. Those 3 may or may not happen to be the same.

We play like this:
One card in the center, each player has one or more cards in front of themselves. The more skilled the player, the more cards (3 is a pretty good max number). First player to have found a match between all own cards and center card calls out and wins the center card.

Me with 3 cards against my 4-year-old with 1 card makes a pretty tight game
