Task:  using your pack of playing cards that were in your Christmas gift from school play this game!


How to play Make Ten:

  1. Remove the face cards from a deck of playing cards and place the deck, face down on the table.
  2. Each player chooses 5 cards and places the cards in front of him.
  3. The first player uses the 5 cards to create as many equations as he can in which the sum equals ten. For example, If I have 9, 9, 3, 2, 4, I could make the following equations:  3+ 7 = 10, 6+4 = 10 or more challenging : 9+4-3=10 and 9+3-2=10.
  4. After making as many equations as possible, player sets aside the used cards and play passes to the next player.
  5. Play continues with players refilling their hands to 5 cards at the start of each turn.
  6. Whoever uses the most cards by the end of the deck wins.
