7 Ate 9 Card Game Type: Other Color: One Color Gender: Boys Girls Age: 8-11 Years
7 ate 9 may be the traditional explanation for 6's profound fear of 7, but it most definitely doesn't explain why it is such a fun family game. The responsibility for this welcome transformation lies squarely on the shoulders of designer Maureen Hiron, the art of Cathleen Quinn-Kinney and John Kovalic, and the acumen of the once again inspiringly playful folk of Out of the Box.7 ate 9 is a card game of speed and calculation, similar to Spit, but significantly more excruciating - in a good way. A very good way.Two to four players begin the game by taking the top card from the shuffled deck, placing it face-up in the center, and then distributing the rest of the deck evenly between players. Since there are 73 cards, after the first card is played on the table, the rest divide into satisfyingly even piles whether you're playing with 2, 3 or 4 players.The cards are numbered from 1-10.

Lest you think 7 Ate 9 is just an elementary-age math game, we beg to differ.The game is easy enough. 73 cards are numbered 1 through 10, each with a /- 1, 2 or 3. When a card is played, you must follow the directions to play the next card. So if the first card played is a 6 /- 3, you can play a 3 or a 9 card. The trick comes when you have a card near 10 or 1... the math is what mathematicians call "modulo (10)." Fear not, it's simpler than it sounds. What it means is, when you reach 10 (going up) or 1 (going down) you roll around to the other end of the scale. So if the last card played is a 9 /- 2, then you can play a 7 or a 1 card.Even my description sounds boring, or if you're not into math, possibly...
