Count by 5s & 10s
Simple Addition and Subtraction
MAKE ANOTHER PLAYER BREAK THE BANK AND YOU WIN THE HAND!
The goal of this game is to force another player to ‘break the bank’ by putting too many coins inside the piggy.
Played by 2 to 4 players, each game starts by drawing a Piggy Bank card that sets the limit of coins the bank will hold for that hand. After being dealt five coin cards, the players take turns adding cards to a growing Discard pile until one player is forced to go over the piggy bank’s limit.
But there are some surprises in store… the Pig Out and Oink-Oink cards.
PIG OUT AND OINK-OINK CARDS ADD EXCITEMENT-AND MORE LEARNING!
“The Pig Out card advances the running total up to the number on the Piggy Bank card. But the Oink-Oink card reduces the number of coin cards played to zero—starting the sequence all over again. The repetition reinforces the counting by fives and tens without being tedious.
HANG ON TO YOUR GOLD COINS TO WIN!
At the beginning of the game, 18 gold coins are divided among the players. Each time a player breaks the bank, they lose a gold coin. When one player has lost all their gold coins, the player with the most coins left is the winner.
LEVEL TWO MAKES SUBTRACTION FUN!
Most parents introduce kids to Level One playing open handed. Before long, they catch on and the fun begins. In Level Two, players try not go below zero as they play their coin cards—and practice subtraction in the process. Level Two keeps kids interested in learning once they’ve mastered addition. Even older siblings can join in the fun.
Players: 2 - 4
Ages: 4 to early primary
