  • Instructions 

SETUP 

The deck is divided evenly among the players, face down, giving each a down stack. 

GAME PLAY 

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 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, 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. 

WILD CARD 

The “one” card is a wild card, as “one” is neither a prime nor composite number.  The player who reveals the “one” 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 PLAY 

Long Form Game: Instead of putting cards into a win stack, players add cards to the bottom of their down stack.  Play continues until one player runs out of cards completely, they are out.  Play continues until only one player has cards left, they win. 

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.   

MATH SKILLS 

  • Count to tell numbers: relationships between numbers and quantities

  • Gain familiarity with factors and multiples: determine whether a given whole number is prime or composite.
