The Multiplication 21 (Card Game)

Students get together in groups of 4. There are three players and one dealer.

The deal shuffles the cards and deals two cards to each player. The players multiply the cards together.

Cards are worth face value. Aces are ones. Jacks are 10s. Queens are 11s. Kings are 12s. Jokers are wild.

When they multiply the cards together, the player that gets a product closest to 21 without going over wins. If all players go over, then the player with the highest product wins.

After each round, mark the winner on a scoresheet. And then the person to the left of the dealer becomes the new dealer for round two.
