Straight 7 Game
(This can be played using colored pencils or crayons to mark the spaces. Each player needs to use a diﬀerent color)
Player 1 takes the problem sheet and cards for player 1 plus the answer key for player 2. Player 2 takes the problem sheet and cards for player 2 plus the answer key for player 1. (Players check each other's answers.)
Players each draw a card from their own set of playing cards and answer the matching card number on their problem sheet. Both players work on solving the problems at the same time. (This way, there is less down time for each player).
If a player's answer is correct, he/she gets to color in one block on the board that contains the card number of that card. (There are two spaces on the board for each card number). If both blocks with that number are already colored in because of a wild card, the player loses that turn by not getting to color in a block.
Although they work on their problems at the same time, players need to take turns coloring in a block on the board. To see who goes first, players should each draw a card from one set of the playing cards. The one who draws the highest problem number goes first.
The ﬁrst player to get 7 blocks in a row wins the game. Also, in addition to trying to get 7 in a row, players should try to block the other player from getting 7 in a row. If all cards have been played and no one gets 7 in a row, the game is a tie.
