Day 74 / 102 - Equation Complete!

We've spent a good portion of our Monday morning attempting to master this game.  Start with a deck of cards with the face cards removed.  Each player is dealt six cards.  They keep these cards throughout the entire game.  A 'Target Card' is then turned over.  Players use any of their six cards to create as many  expressions that equal the value of the 'Target Card'.  Players may use each card only once and must use at least three of their cards.

Above you can see that my daughter's hand included 2, 2, 3, 3, 4, 7.  Her 'Target Card' was 5.  Together we created the eight expressions listed, although I'm positive the list could keep going and going.  The game would continue with her keeping her hand, but receiving a new 'Target Card'.


  1. A collective "Thank You" from my Essentials class - we used this today :)

    1. You're welcome. I'm subbing for Essentials today, so I tested it out earlier in the week!
