Playing "war" helps with math skills

The concept is found here.

The basic concept is simple.

Deck of cards.. remove all jacks, queens and kings.

One deck per player.

Simple number knowing: Play war : high card wins

Play addition/multiplication war: turn up two cards, multiply, high answer wins

Can also do for subtraction.. and make it so low card wins or whatever desired.

Quick way to reinforce math skills in a fun way.
