Materials Twelve sets of four cards. In each set the four cards show basic multiplication & division combinations for the same product/quotient.
Before play starts the player agree on the sum that will be the key number. For example they might agree that 12 will be the key number.
Multiplication Key Numbers: 10, 12, 14, 16, 20, 24, 32, 40, 48, 60, 72, 84
The deck is shuffled and completely dealt face-down into two stacks, one on the front of each player. At the same time, both players turn the top cards of their stack face-up, next to each other, in the center of the table. If the product on one of the cards is the key number, 12 in this example, the players try to slap their hands down on top of that card.
The first player to cover the card with his hand wins the round and collects the face-up cards which he puts at the bottom of his stack. The play ends when one player loses all of his cards or when predetermined time has expired. The player with the greater number of cards is the winner.
This game can be varied by using division cards or by mixing division & multiplication cards.
