Do you know your multiplication facts? Play this game against a friend and see how much you know!

Standard deck of playing cards

Take a standard deck of cards and remove all of the jacks, queens, kings, aces, and jokers.

Take the remaining 38 cards and divide them into 2 piles of 19 cards each.

Flip over the cards on the top of each deck.

Whoever correctly multiplies the numbers on the 2 cards the fastest, wins the cards.

Keep flipping over the cards one at a time from each pile and see who can correctly multiply the cards the fastest.

Whoever has the most cards at the end, wins.

You can also play this game by yourself and see how fast you can multiply each pair of numbers. How fast can you multiply all of the pairs?
