Integer Capture Rules Materials: Deck of Integer Cards (2 cards each of the integers -15 to 15 with or without the 2 wildcards), Integer Capture Game Board, game markers for each player (2-color chips) Players: 2 Goal: Capture 4 integers in a row. (The goal can be modified to capture 3 in a row or 4 in any way as long as they touch) Rules: 1. Deal out 5 cards to each player. Turn the remaining cards face down in the center of the table. 2. Take turns. 3. When it is your turn, use 2 or more cards and any combination of operations (add, subtract, multiply, and/or divide) to create an expression that names one of the integers on the board. Say and/or write the problem and place one of your markers on that integer. 4. The other players can challenge your problem. If they are correct, you must remove your marker and lose that turn. 5. Replace the cards that you used with cards from the remaining deck. 6. Once an integer has been captured, it cannot be captured again. 7. Options: a wild card will let you remove one of an opponent’s markers. 8. The first player to capture 4 integers in a row (horizontally, vertically, or diagonally) wins.
