Make 10 red Game--Play with a partner.

 

What you Will Need: Any deck of cards (take out face cards and doesn’t have to be a full deck)

How to Play:

1. Deal 4 rows of 5 cards face down.

2. Player 1 turns over one card. If that card does not make 10, then they turn over a second card and add the two together.

3. If they are less than 10, turn over yet another card.

4. If you have gone over 10, then the player turns the backs back over.

5. Player 2 must pay attention to where the cards are as it’s also a memory game!

6. Player 2 then has a chance to turn over cards to try to make 10. You may turn over one card that is 10, you may make ten with over 4 cards. There are many combinations that work.

7. When a player makes 10 they take the cards they used and make their own pile.

8. The game is over when all the cards have been turned over or the players decide they cannot make 10 with what they have.

9. If the players decide they are at a standstill, they both decide to turn over the remaining cards and see what they have.

10. Players count up their cards to find a winner.

11. Play again!
