A Monstrously Fun Game of Creative Mental Math
Your task is simple: Find a way to make Adsumudi's answer (the number in the center of each card) by using the other numbers on the card and any combination of addition, subtraction, multiplication, and division. To make Adsumudi's answer, you can use any two digits (that's accessible mode), three numbers (medium mode), four numbers (getting harder!), or for true math masters; you can use all five numbers (we call that monstrously complex mode).
Each card can be played at different levels simultaneously or gradually. Or, for a little family-friendly competition, let kids of different ages play at their level within the same game. Work together to solve each group as you go, from accessible mode up to monstrously complex.
When a card is revealed, everyone tries to come up with the answer in the middle of the card by adding, subtracting, multiplying, or dividing a combination of the five numbers displayed around the answer number. The first person to figure out a solution says, "Adsumudi!" They then share the solution they found. If it checks out, they take the card.
The first player to collect five cards wins.
