What Does This Make?
Players: 2

Number of Cards: Number cards from 1-12 (x4) / 4 Jokers

Educational Value:
: Explores the various basic arithmetical functions and consolidates the understanding of figures.

Goal: The player with the most cards at the end of the game is the winner.

Preparation: The Jokers are taken out of the pack and shared between the players. The remaining cards are then split into two equal piles and placed face-down on the table.

How to Play: The first player takes the top card from each deck and uses the two numbers to create a simple arithmetical problem (with adding, subtracting, multiplying or dividing) for the second player.
If the second player answers the question correctly, he gets the two cards. If he answers incorrectly, the first player keeps the cards.
The second player then repeats the process and the game continues.
A Joker can be used when a player wants to change the arithmetical function used in the question he is given in order to simplify the calculation. When a Joker has been used, it cannot be used again.
The player with the most cards at the end of the game is the winner.

Variation: Use three stacks of cards and repeat the game using one card from each pile to make more complicated problems.
