Any number of players or teams of 2.

You need:

A pack of playing cards arranged in a 13 x 4 array, face down. Ace = 1, picture cards = 10.

To play:

Player 1 turns over 2 cards and adds the values. Player 1 then turns over another two cards and adds the values. If the totals match, player 1 keeps the 4 cards and has another turn. If they do not match, the cards are turned face down again and it is player 2’s turn.

The game continues until no more matches can be made.

Can you remember where cards are? How will this help you? Watch carefully when other players are turning over cards.

Variations

  1. Play the same game but subtract the pairs of cards. If the answers match, keep the cards and have another turn. If they don’t, turn them face down again.
  2. On each turn, turn over two cards. If the numbers match, keep the cards and have another turn. If they don’t match turn the cards face down again.
  3. On each turn, turn over two cards. If the numbers and colours match, keep the cards and have another turn. If they don’t match turn the cards face down again.
  4. On each turn, turn over two cards. If both numbers are odd or both even, keep the cards and have another turn. If they don’t match turn the cards back face down.
  5. Make up your own rules!
