You can set max and min poly counts for the fragments, so if your matchsticks are 6 poly's set the max and min to 6.

[edit] ...though I haven't tested that. It might break it into random 6-poly objects.

Else... just animate it by hand, can do it in a few minutes without breaking a sweat.

@ Herfst1 I could be wrong but i think he has the shape made of match sticks and he wants to animate the 6 sticks coming together.

depends on the quality your looking for but a quick way to do it would be animate it backwards and swap the keys - hers my 2 min example
