How to Play
Detailed Game Instructions
PLAYERS: 2-4 AGES: 5+ TIME: 10-15 minutes
The objective of Prime Slap™ is to win the most cards.
- 50 cards
- 15 Prime Number Cards (have only one character on the card)
- 34 Composite Number Cards (have multiple characters on the card)
- 1 Wild Card (Yeti)
The deck is divided evenly among the players, face down, giving each a down stack.
In unison, each player reveals the top card of their deck—this is a “battle”—and the player with the highest card takes all the cards played and moves them to their win stack. Unless a prime number card is played.
PRIME NUMBER CARDS
If a prime number card (only one character) is played the users race to be the first to slap the prime. The player whose hand covers the prime with their hand, takes all the cards and moves them to their win stack.
If a player slaps a composite number (more than one character), they automatically lose that flip. Of the remaining players the one with the highest card takes the pile, additionally as a consequence of the false slap, the player who slapped incorrectly has to give an additional card to the winner.
The ONE/Yeti card is a wild card, as “one” is neither a prime nor composite number. The player who reveals the Yeti card will take all the cards and move them to their win stack, regardless of the cards played by other players.
HOW TO WIN
When all players cards from the down stack have been played, each player totals the cards in their win stack. The player with the most cards wins.
ALTERNATE GAME PLAY
Emotion Acting: Rather than slapping the prime numbers, players could also decide to act out the emotions of the prime number characters. The player who acts it out first takes the cards and moves them to their win stack.
Concepts and Skills
PRIME & COMPOSITE NUMBERS
Prime Number: Can ONLY be divided by itself and 1
Composite Number: Can be divided by itself, 1 and at least one other divisor
Prime Numbers are the building blocks of all whole numbers. Every number across the number line is either a prime number or composed of primes.
At Intellivance we visually represent each prime number as a single symbol (or character). Each composite number demonstrates the primes it is made of and displays all the possible factor combinations within that composite number.
