Play this game with anyone in your family…it will help you remember your simple addition and subtraction facts.
You could even start with 50 and work backwards to zero.
|You will need:A full pack of playing cards.|
Number of players:
Two or more.
|To prepare for play:Jokers are WILD CARDS. You can use them at any time to represent a number from 1 to 10 (inclusive). If you turn over a Jack, Queen or King then your score for that turn goes back to zero and the next player has their go.|
|The goal:To be first to hit the score of 50.|
Any player can draw as many cards as they like in a row, but if they turn over a picture card, they lose their points for that go and score zero. However, you can ‘bank’ a score and allow the next player to go, which will save your score for your next go. Use a pencil and a piece of paper to keep track.
