Print all pages on white cardstock or construction paper. Laminate for durability; then, cut out the cards. You’re ready to play!
This game is played best with only 2 players, but you can modify as needed. Both players need to start the game with an equal number of cards, so remove as many or few numeral cards and corresponding sequence cards as you prefer. Deal out the remaining yellow numeral cards to both players (remember: both players should have the SAME amount!). The cards should be placed in front of each respective player FACE-UP so the numbers are visible to all. Shuffle the blue missing number sequence cards and pink KA-POW cards together. You can choose to keep all KA-POW cards in the game, or remove some so less “craziness” is involved. ☺ I find all 6 KA-POW cards are great because they keep things VERY interesting! Once all blue and pink cards are shuffled, they should be placed in a pile between both players. Game on!
The first player draws a card from the deck in the center. The card is then discarded in a pile next to the deck. Both players look at the card to determine the missing number for the number sequence displayed. For instance, if the player flips over the “7, _, 9” card, both players search their yellow numeral cards for “8.” When “8” is found, the player that has it flips it face-down and play continues to the next player. If a pink KA-POW card is picked, the players must switch seats and play with their opponent’s cards! The game is over when one player’s yellow numeral cards have ALL been flipped over, making him/her the winner! Play again and again until time runs out!
My students love this game because it’s so unpredictable! I bet yours will, too. ☺
