Pirates’ Bounty is an odd/even fact sorting game for sums and differences of 10 to 20. The game can be played three ways: * 30 addition cards * 30 subtraction cards * Both sets combined
Each player has a ten frame board (Odd or Even). Players take turns solving a fact card and determining whether the answer is odd or even. If the answer matches his ten frame board (odd-odd, even-even), the player puts the card on his board. If not, he discards the card. The first to fill his ten frame wins.
Players can check their answers two ways … * Use the included Checking Chart * Challenge! A Player can challenge his partner to “Prove it or walk the plank!” Using the included 1-30 number grid, the player must demonstrate the accuracy of his answer. If correct, he keeps the card. If incorrect, he discards it and the challenger gets an extra turn.
