Decide if you want students to leave in or take out the face      cards. If you leave them in the game, decide what values those cards might      have. For example:
  • All face      cards might have a value of 0.
  • All face      cards might have a value of 10.
  • All face      cards might have a value of 12.
  • A joker      might have a value of 0, a jack might have a value of 10, a queen might      have a value of 11, and a king might have a value of 12.

Rules for Play

  • Shuffle the      deck of cards and place it face down.
  • Each      student draws a card from the top of the deck and reveals the card. Cards      can be revealed one at a time or at the same time.
  • When both      cards are revealed, students must perform the assigned operation on the      cards. For example, if one student flips over a 5 of hearts and the other      flips over a 9 of spades, then the students add in their heads the value      of those two cards. 5 + 9 = 14. The first student to call out      “14″ wins those two cards.
