Each card has a printer's devilry of a word that may be broken up in several places in the phrasing. Each word is half of a brand name which contains a central ampersand.

The matching brands are Abercrombie & Fitch, Arm & Hammer, Ben & Jerry's, Black & Decker, Crate & Barrel, Shake & Bake, Good & Plenty, and Spic & Span. Overlaying the two cards which contain matching halves reveals only one letter in the same position on each card.

Each card's corrected text goes with one of the locations on the map. At the midpoint of the halves is an intersection. There is one intersection on each street from 2nd to 9th. Mapping the extracted letters in left to right order spells REUNITES.
