Math Games: Two-Card Match-Up

Why are we playing Match-Up?
In this card game, the Magical Minds practice using their knowledge of place value to create large numbers.

The Goal is to win ALL the cards by having the highest number.

How to play: (very similar to War)
1. Remove the 10’s and face cards
2. Split the deck between two players
3. Each player turns over two cards.  Each player then rearranges the cards to create the largest number possible.  For example if I draw a 5 and a 9, I can create the number 59 or 95.  I would want to create the number 95.
4.  The player with the highest number wins that round and takes all the cards.

Each player draws two more cards and the highest number wins.
