Well, isn’t teaching English numbers always kind of a nightmare? Thirteen or fourteen? Eighty or eighteen? Which number is bigger and how to remember that? Let us present you our brand new game that’s super easy to play!
To play you need 36 cards – which means you need to print THIS SET OF CARDS twice. We highly recommend laminating the cards, but you probably already know what to do, you Laminator Queen, you 🙂
Here are the rules – each card has a number written on it. Kids play in pairs. Each player is given 18 cards that they put into a pile, pictures facing down. On “one, two, three” players uncover the first card in their piles. Whoever has a bigger number wins the round and gets both cards which he/she then puts both under his/her pile. The game ends when one of the players gets rid of all cards.
PLOT TWIST – sometimes both players will uncover cards with the same number on them. And that means WAR, my friends! War is played by putting the next cards of both players’ piles face down and then another cards face-up. The owner of the higher face-up card wins the war and adds all six cards on the table to the bottom of their deck.
The cards show animals from the winter woods (that we practised HERE), so you can use them as you like! We’d like to pay our respects to the mighty freepik,com, the provider of cute animal cliparts used in making this game. For our minimalist friends we also prepared a printer-friendly version of the game (only numbers, no animals, but click anyway!).
