Your purchase comes with the Go Fish game pictured above, the cards with the XXXXs are so you can print 2 sided and scholars can't see the other side of the cards. Your purchase comes with 32 cards for the game, and directions.
The rules are the same as “Go Fish”, the idea is to get pairs, but in this game pairs are missing factors in multiplication problems, you are trying to put together multiplication problems.
(When the card says 24 4 x ____ = 24, the matching card says 24 ____ x 6 = 24, because 4 x 6 = 24)
Cards are originally placed on the paper with their pairs, so you can see what a pair looks like:
4 x ____ = 36
____ x 9 = 36
1. Shuffle the Deck, each player gets 7 cards, the extra cards go face down and become the draw pile.
2. Remove any “pairs” and place them in front of you.
3. Play Rock, Paper, Scissors to see who goes first.
4. The first player to go must ask another player for a card. (If I have “24 4 x ____ = 24” I would ask for “24 ____ x 6 = 24”).
-If the other player has it, they must hand it over, and the player who asked gets to put their pair down and go again.
-If they don’t have it, they say “Go Fish” and the asking player must draw a card from the draw pile, the turn is now over.
4. Repeat until all the cards are gone, if someone runs out of cards they draw 3 more from the draw pile to keep the game going.
5. The player with the most pairs wins.
