Multiplication Snap!


If your kids are learning their times tables, and need a break from the normal drills, teach them this times tables game! It helps a lot to maintain interest.

The rules of Multiplication Snap are simple...
• Use an ordinary pack of cards
• Distribute the cards equally between two players.
• Each player puts out a card without looking what it is.
• The first player to give the correct product gets both.
      For example, the correct answer below is 8 × 5 = 40.

The winner is the one with the most cards at the end of the game. 

Decide before the game starts on the values of these cards.
