Integer slam

Walt: add and subtract positive and negative whole numbers.

Integer Slam

The Objective of these game is to try and add or subtract numbers to get make up to 12 or -12.  

You need a set of cards but take out all the jacks, queens and kings, the royal family.

How to start:
Deal each player three cards.
Turn the top card of the remainder deck face up.

How to play:
The first player takes the top card off the remainder pile and then puts one card face down into what becomes the discard pile.
Take turns to take the top card from either the remainder pile or the discard pile.
At the end of your turn, you must discard one card.
When the remainder pile runs out, turn over the discard pile, and start a new discard pile.
The winner in the first player to put down three cards that add up to 12 or -12.

I would recommend this game to anyone who knows how to add and subtract integers. The age that mostly knows integers is year 7 and up.
