Subtraction War

In this game, black cards 1 through 10 are positive integers, and red cards 1 through 10 are negative integers. Shuffle and deal all of the cards.

Each player turns over his or her top two cards, laying the first card down and then the second card to the right of the first card. Each player then finds the difference between the two cards, first card minus the second card. The player with the greater total gets all of the cards. Play continues until all cards are used. The winner is the one with the most cards at the end of the round. Play several rounds.
