With Jane and Joanne
The object of this game is to make the greatest sum.
Place the deck of cards face down in the middle of the playing area. A player draws a card from the deck and places the card face up. Each player selects a space on their gameboard and writes the number of this card in that space.
Eight more cards are drawn and players proceed to fill in their gameboards.
Once all gameboard spaces are filled in, players complete the addition. The player with the greatest sum is the winner of that round and scores 1 point.
The first card turned over is a 5. The second card turned over is a 7. Seven more numbers [a 3, 4, 9, 8, 10 (=0), 6, and another 4] are drawn, which might reveal math problems such as these:
|Player 1||Player 2||Player 3|
In the event of a tie, each player receives 1 point.
The winner is the one with the most points after a set number of rounds or a set time limit.
As players gain more experience with this game, they will develop strategies to maximize their scores and their chances of winning.
Vary the number of cards to modify the level of difficulty.
