Players: 2 and a ‘Referee’

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

Educational Value: Reinforces addition.

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

Preparation: The cards are shuffled and then split into two equal piles and placed face-down on the table.

How to Play: The first player takes one card from the top of each pile and tries to add the two together. A Joker can stand for any number.

If the player succeeds, he gets to keep the cards. If he does not, the other players get to try to complete the sum. The ‘Referee’ decides if the sums have been completed correctly.

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

Variation: Instead of addition, subtraction can be used.

Variation: Instead of addition, multiplication can be used.

Variation: Instead of addition, division can be used. If this means a whole number is not created, however, one of the cards is put back into the pile (alternating between piles) until a whole number problem is found.
