You'll Need

  • Deck of cards


30 minutes

Using the aces as 1s, pull out only the cards showing the numbers 1-6 from the deck. Have each player draw eight cards from the deck. The object is to arrange the cards so that the number totals are as close to 100 without going over. Cards can be used in the tens or ones place. For example, your hand is two aces (1s), a 3, two 4s, two 6s and one 5. Arranging them as 1, 31, 44, 6, 6, 5 results in a total of 93.
