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.

I agree with you regarding the satisfaction and importance of actually computing some numbers. I can't tell you how often I see time and money wasted because someone didn't bother to run the numbers.
