With Jane and Joanne
Players divide the playing cards evenly between themselves. Each player turns over two cards to create a 2-digit number. The number on the first card turned over represents the number that will appear in the tens place; the number on the second card represents the number that will appear in the ones place.
Both players call out their numbers. (You might have them verbalize: "Six tens and two ones equals sixty-two.") The player with the largest number gets all four cards.
In the event of a tie (if each player has the same 2-digit number), war is declared.
--- Player 1 pulls the cards 6 and 8 to create the number 68.
--- Player 2 pulls the cards 7 and 2 to create the number 72.
--- Player 2 collects all the cards.
--- Player 1 pulls the cards 4 and 3 to create the number 43.
--- Player 2 pulls the cards 4 and 3 to create the number 43.
--- In this "war" situation, each draws three more cards the are kept face down.
--- Then Player 1 draws two more cards and turns them over. He uses the cards, a 6 and a 2, to create a new number (62). He adds 62 to the original number (43) for a total of 105.
--- Player 2 turns over two more cards, a 1 and a 9. She adds the new number (19) to the original number (43) for a total of 62.
--- Player 1 has the larger total number, so he collects all of the cards.
Play continues until one player has collected all of the cards in the deck.
