Rules: The objective of the game is to compare digits using these symbols: greater than (>), less than (<) and equal to (=). [CCSS 1.NBT.B.3]
Prior to the start of the game, the players decide who will be Player 1 and Player 2.
The game uses a deck of cards. Aces have a value of 1 while the 10s and the face cards (Jack, Queen and King) are removed.
The players must sit beside each other. The deck of cards is shuffled thoroughly and distributed evenly to the players. The players put their cards in a pile in face-down position.
Each player flips over the topmost card of their pile at the same time.
Each player determines whether the card of Player 1 is greater than, less than, or the equal to the card of Player 2.
The players then “slap” the proper symbol for their card in relation to the other as quickly as possible.
Whoever “slaps” the proper symbol first keeps both cards and adds them to the bottom of their pile.
In the event of a tie, players return their card to the bottom of their own pile. The first player to collect all the cards wins.
