Students must problem solve and find a way to use each number on the card one time to find a solution whose answer is 24.
For example, the answer to this card is 4 x 3 = 12, 12 x 2 =24, 24 x 1 = 24.

This game is similar to the card game "War". It is most easily played with two people. Remove the Kings, Queens, Jacks, Jokers, and Aces from a deck of cards to play. Split the deck into two piles and turn over a card from each pile. The first student to yell out the product of the numbers on the two cards get those two cards. The student with the most cards at the end wins. To make it more challenging, you could change the aces to 0, the jacks to 1, the queens to 11, and the kings to 12. To prevent one student from easily beating another when only two students are playing, a joker rule could be added. When the joker card is picked from the stack, one of two things could happen. Either the student with the most cards or the student who flipped that card must put all of their collected cards back into the stack.
