How to play
The basic game is super simple. It needs one caller, and works with up to four players.
Lay out about ten cards face up in random order between the two players. The caller gives a clue to one of the cards, and the players race to slap the appropriate card. You can use any of the FunKey Maths card packs for this game, or you can make cards out of scraps of paper.
As with the Maze Game, there are so many possible mathematical applications of this game.
Here’s one idea for using the FunKey Maths Times Tables cards to practise times tables facts.
Lay out the twelve multiples of seven. The caller shouts out a times table question such as, “Three sevens”. The players race to slap card 21. The first person to slap it takes it. The winner is the player with the most cards when all the cards have been taken.
There are so many other applications. Here are some ideas.
- To practise reading numbers
Lay out 10 cards face up. One player shouts a number. Other players race to slap the card showing that number.
- To practise 1 more than/1 less than
Lay out 10 cards face up. One player gives a clue by saying, “One more than …..” So for example, if one of the cards is 15, the clue is, “One more than 14”. . Other players race to slap the card showing that number
You get the idea. The range of clues and maths applications is endless, and this game will work from nursery up to University level!
