With Jane and Joanne
The object of this game is to make the smallest difference.
Place the deck face down in the middle of the playing area. A player draws a card from the deck and places it face up. Each player selects a space on their gameboard and writes the number of the card on that space.
Then players draw five more cards and fill in their gameboards.
The first card turned over is a 7. The second card turned over is a 2. The other cards turned over were 3, 6, 5, and another 2. Completed gameboards could look like this:
|Player 1||Player 2|
In the event of a tie, each player receives 1 point. Any negative difference causes that player to strike out for that round.
The winner of the game is the player 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 chances of winning.
Vary the number of cards to modify the level of difficulty.
