• Deck of playing cards (Aces are 1, Kings are 0 – remove Queens and Jacks)
• 2 players
How to play:
The goal is to capture your opponent’s cards.
Deal out the cards so each player gets half the deck. Each player lays down 2 cards and figures out the product of their cards.
The player with the largest product gets both cards.
If both players cards have the same product, each player lays down 2 more cards.
The winner of the second set of cards gets all 8 cards.
You can play for a set amount of time then count the cards or you can play until one player has all of the cards.
