Tired of place value worksheets? Try this place value game to make practice more fun! The Base Ten War game helps students practice place value using a twist on the traditional card game, "War." Instead of comparing numbers, players count the base-ten (or place value blocks) on their cards and the player with the largest number wins the hand!

Save 20% by purchasing this as part of a Base-Ten War Bundle, or a larger Place Value Games Bundle.

Base Ten War with Exchanges requires students to count block sets with more than ten in ones blocks - so students need to make a trade/exchange. The game can be played with pairs or small groups of students.

This math game includes

  • directions
  • 72 fully-colored game cards, featuring a combination of base-ten blocks and numerals
  • 3 place value practice pages (in English and Spanish)

The base-ten blocks represent each number two ways: one with the "proper" number of longs and cubes and one set requiring exchanges (for example, 34 might be represented with 2 longs and 14 cubes.) This helps students develop the flexible thinking about place value that is required for regrouping and borrowing as they add and subtract double-digit numbers.

There are several more fun place value activities in my store. Take a look!
