Game description

Without any doubt, math geniuses definitely have the better cards here – or is it the better button? For this game, you need different coloured buttons. Each button represents a number. For example, every green button has the value of 3, every black one 4 and the blue one is 1. You get the idea. You can use as many buttons as you want. Of course, the number of buttons is depending on the number kids you are playing with and also adjust the difficulty of the game to the age of the children. The team leader explains the rules first and also repeats the number value of each coloured button. Now you can start. 10 buttons are placed on the table, and the kids have to add their value quickly up.


That child who calls out the first correct answer wins. Now the winner can put the next 10 buttons on the table. If you use more than 10 buttons, you could play in teams as well. The team, which correctly sums up the value of 50 buttons wins. This will need a strategy which will help the team to win.
