The 24 Card Math Game #shorts

The 24 game that originated in China is a fast-paced 2-player game of number manipulatiin. Your goal is to take the integers of the 4 cards on the table and turn them into the number 24, and any mathematical operation is fair game. Add, subtract, divide, multiply, fractions, exponents, factorials… anything goes, as long as the end result is 24 and your math checks out.

The rules are simple: aces are worth 1, face cards are worth 10, and the other numbers are themselves. Each player flips 2 cards and the first to invent a combination yielding 24 puts all 4 cards at the bottom of their stack. Keep going until one player has all the cards, and then PLAY AGAIN.
