Your students will love playing this even and odd game and finding out who will be Santa's new reindeer. Rudolf’s nose goes back and forth between the player’s reindeer depending on if the card drawn is odd or even. Once the last card is drawn whoever has Rudolf's nose is the one who will get to pull Santa's sleigh!
Players decide who is the even reindeer and who is the odd reindeer.
Player 1 chooses a card and decides if the number is odd or even.
For example, player 1 is the odd reindeer and player 2 is the even reindeer. Player 1 chooses the number 5. 5 is odd so player 1 (because they are the odd reindeer) puts Rudolf’s nose (the pom-pom) on their reindeer.
Player 2s turn.
Let’s say player 2 draws a 17. 17 is odd so the pom-pom would stay on player 1s reindeer.
Next, let’s say player 1 draws 18. 18 is even so player 2 would take Rudolf’s nose from player 1 and put it on their reindeer because player 2 is the even reindeer.
Play continues until all cards are drawn. The player that ends up with Rudolf’s nose on their reindeer wins!
