CROSSED OPERATIONS is a game where you have to make elementary operations.

From 2 to 4 players.

The game set have 75 tiles with the numbers from 0 to 9, the operations +, -, x and :, and the sign =. Although it is recommended to play with two sets of tiles.


First, you have to look for a card with the sign = and place it in the center of the table. The rest are placed face down.

Next, each player takes 10 tiles that only he can see.

The game goal is to make correct operations with the tiles, provided that at least one of the used tiles was already played at the table. The operation must be placed in the same horizontal or vertical line, having to be read from top to bottom, or from left to right. It is required that at each operation there was at least one sign =.

When a player places an operation on the table he must add the number of blue points that those cards have (look in the right corner). Those will be the points he has won in his round.

If a player can not place any operation, he can discard up to three of his tiles. Those tiles can no longer be played in the game.

Once a player has placed an operation, or has discarded tiles, he must complete his hand until he has 10 tiles again.

When there are no more tiles and no player can place an operation, the game is over. The winner will be the player who has scored the most points with their operations.
