Instructions for the February Ordinal Number Card Game:
Choose one format of cards for CENTER pile.
Use the other formats of cards for PLAYING cards. (More copies will create a longer game.)
To play: 2-4 players
-Place the CENTER cards face down in a pile.
-Deal the PLAYING cards equally among players and place them face down in a pile in front of each player.
-Decide the first player.
-Flip over one of the CENTER cards.
-In clockwise order, players flip one card at a time. When a PLAYING card is flipped that matches the CENTER card: SLAP-IT! (matches will be in many formats)
-The first player to slap the card takes the center pile of cards that have been played and adds them to the bottom of their own pile.
-Flip over another CENTER card and continue playing, this time matching the new card that has been flipped over.
-Game is finished when time is up or one player has all the PLAYING cards.
You can also use these cards for playing Memory. Choose two copies of each card (fewer cards for younger learners) and play like a traditional game of memory.
Or put the cards in order according to their ordinal numbers or sort all of the different formats according to their ordinal number.
