Time for a number game!

Number game

Making up games seems to be one of the things we love to do. We don’t need that much to invent a new game.

Our number game can be played in different varieties. We have number 1 to 9. Unfortunately number 10 was not in the box with the sandpaper numbers. Doesn’t matter, we’ll do that another time.

For every number we made as many cards as the number is high. So for number two, we made two cards and wrote a two on those cards. For number eight we made eight cards and on every card we wrote an eight.. And so on.

After all the preparations we started our game. We laid the sandpaper numbers in front of us and from the handmade cards we made a stack. Only Maximan and I were playing, so we divided the stack in two. Each turn you could lay down a card and looked for the matching number.

This is one version of course. We’ll see what Maximan thinks of next.
