-Remove the Kings, Jacks, and Jokers from a deck of cards. Agree that the Queen card = the number 0.
-Player One draws 2 cards and adds for the sum of the two numbers on the cards. Player One will then need to use a strategy to determine what number they need to create the total sum of 20. Players may use counters, rekenreks, or another strategy to find the number that will help them create a total sum of 20.
-Player One uses one of their counters to cover the number they need to create a total sum of 20 on the game board.
-Player Two completes their turn in the same manner.
-Play continues until one of the players has 5 in a row (vertically or horizontally) on the game board.
