Number of players: 2
Materials: Index cards
Captured Integers  

Copy onto cards the integers shown below, one integer per card. Shuffle the cards and place them face down in a pile. Decide which partner will go first.

The first partner selects two cards from the pile and places them face up, with the greater integer to the right. The second partner then selects two cards and arranges all four cards in order from least to greatest. Each partner takes the two cards he or she selected unless two of one partner's cards surround one or both of the other partner's cards. If you can place the card to the left and to the right of one or both of your partner's cards, you "capture" the card or cards. Continue in the same way, taking turns drawing the first two cards of each round, until no card remains in the pile. The partner with more cards wins.
