# Crazy Twos

### What you need:

A pack of cards with picture cards and jokers removed. (Ace =1)

### What to do:

Deal each player 6 cards.

The other cards are placed face down in a pile.

The player to the left of the dealer places a card from their hand face up on the table.

Players take turns to place a card that is 2 greater than the card turned up. e.g If a 5 was turned up then a 7 is needed to have a turn. If the player can’t place a card he/she has to pick up a card from the deck. If that card can be placed the player can put it on the pile.

When either a 9 or a 10 is placed on the pile, the next player starts the sequence again by placing any card they choose.

The winner is the first player to get rid of their cards.

### What to expect your child to do:

Be able to count in twos from odd or even numbers to 10.
