Set-Up Directions:

  • Use all the cards numbered 2, 3, 4, 5, 6, 7, 8, and 9 (4 of each)
  • Use the Aces as the number 1.
  • If you want to use a zero (0), choose either the Jack, Queen or King as a ZERO.

Game Directions

  • Shuffle the cards.
  • Place the deck number-side down on a flat surface.
  • Each player draws 3 cards from the top of the deck.
  • Each player makes the largest 3-digit number possible.
  • Players read aloud their numbers and compare their value.
  • The player with the larger number wins all the cards in that round.

  3. You could adjust this for older kids by letting kids draw more cards and having them use a decimal. You could also compete for the smallest number.
