Addition War

3.2 based on 17 ratings

What You Need:

  • Deck of cards with the face card removed
  • 2 or more players

What You Do:

  1. Tell the players that for the purposes of the game aces= 1. Then, have your child shuffle the deck of cards.
  2. Have her deal the entire deck out evenly between both her and her friend.
  3. The rules of the game are pretty much like the card game War (both kids flip over a card at the same time), but instead of the player with highest card winning, the first player to say the sum of the two cards aloud wins the two cards.
  4. The first child to accumulate all of the cards is the winner.
