Math game using playing cards?

A few weeks ago, I was searching the web for ways to help my daughter learn multipication.  I came across a game that she could play using standard playing cards.  It envolved laying out a row of cards, doing some multipication - maybe multiplying a card from a draw pile by card in the line....but somehow, I didn't bookmark the page and now I can't find it.  If you know of any such game where multipication is practiced with standard playing cards, please tell me about it.

Hi Jc;

Welcome to the forum!

Uh Oh! That's a killer.

I know of multiplication war which is a pretty good game. How about times table football? Any of that sound familiar?

In mathematics, you don't understand things. You just get used to them.
Of course that result can be rigorously obtained, but who cares?
Combinatorics is Algebra and Algebra is Combinatorics.
