# Power of Eight Faceoff

#### Learning Outcomes

Learning to add 8 to a number; developing a sense of pattern in numbers.

#### Instructions

1. Each player places an eight-card face up on the floor or table before him. He then draws another card that he places face up alongside his eight-card. The player then states the value of the two cards (will range from 9-18). The player with the highest total takes the tow non-eight (or the units-digit) cards and retains them. In the event of a tie, each player turns over another card and the player with the highest total takes the cards for the current round and the previous round.

2. Each player’s eight-card remains in place as he turns over another card to place alongside it. Again, the person with the greatest total removes the two units-cards.

3. The game continues until all cards have been exhausted. The player with the most cards at the end of the game is the winner.
