This is my version of the game “Manifest” which was invented by Frank Tapson, an English professor of mathematics education. Tapson’s version is a place value game, where players line up a set of 0 - 9 cards to make a triangle, and then turn over individual rows to see who has made the largest number using the cards. For each row that wins, you get a point. It’s a pretty good game, and can easily be taught to children to enhance their understanding of place value up to 4 digits (into the thousands.)
My version takes the same concept and puts it on steroids: like the original, only the digit cards 0 - 9 are used, and they are arranged in a pyramid, and the cards are turned over by row. However, in my version, the cards for each row are added together, and whomever has the greatest total of that row takes all the cards in that row (yourself and opponent.) At the end of the game, all the cards are added up, compared and recorded. After 4 rounds, the totals are added together and whomever has the most is the winner.
This version comes with detailed instructions, game boards, scoring and record sheets, as well as 0-9 digit cards.
