    2 sets of number cards

    Players:

    2 or more

    Object of the game:

    To be the player with the most cards

    Directions:

    1. Each player takes a card from the top of the pile, turns it over, and says the number on the card.

    2. The play who has the larger number takes both cards.

    3. If the two cards show the same number, each player takes another card from the top of the pile. The player with the larger number then takes all of the cards facing up.

    4. The game is over when all of the cards have been taken. The player with more cards wins.

    *Variation: Another way to determine who wins at the end of the game is to flip a penny.

    Heads: The player with more cards wins.
