Description of numerical construction.
Playing cards with numbers.

The small version of the present mathematical gaming contains two decks of 34 numerical playing cards in each with numbers from 0 up to 33. Numbers are put on playing cards in the direct and turned positions that allows two players to read numerical signs directly at opposite sides of a game board.
Two-color circles on face sheets and multi-colored rhombuses on backs designate belonging of playing cards to different decks that allows two players to distinguish decks.
Points on back surfaces designate playing cards with numbers in which there are ciphers 0, 1, 2, 3 and there are no ciphers 4, 5, 6, 7, 8, 9. These numbers are called "quaternary" or "fourfold" or "quadruple" and accordingly points designate playing cards with quaternary numerical signs which are necessary for realization of some game rules which are based on formation of digital combinations.
The game board of the small version has 8 vertical and 8 horizontal rows that forms 64 squares as a chess-board or a checker-board. Verticals and horizontals have numerical notations. Squares have dark and light colors that allows to see diagonals.
The constructive design of such mathematical gaming allows to carry out various rules and instructions of mathematical games and puzzles.
Namely gamers can spread or shift or move numerical cards on squares of a chess board and make playing interactions according to digital values and identical ciphers in numbers. Big numbers can beat smaller, and also playing cards can beat each other if have identical ciphers of which numbers consist.
For example, 7 can beat 17 as both have cipher 7, but can not 9 as number 7 is less than 9. The playing card with 9 can beat 7, but can not 17 as number 17 is more than number 9. Such hierarchy of playing cards is connected not only with mathematical values but also with ciphers or digits of which numbers consist.
Besides it is possible to play rules of mathematical games and puzzles in which interaction of numerical cards occurs according to combinations which are formed by sequences of numbers on next squares, that somewhat similarly to combinations or hands of cards in poker, but occurs during math games on a chessboard.
Arithmetic actions in a context of the small version of the present numerical game are inexpedient, as the big version of playing cards with numbers from 0 to 99 and digital notations of verticals and horizontals from 0 to 9 on a chess board for this purpose is intended. But the small version is expedient for games and puzzles where gamers move numbers on squares as playing figures of chessmen.
Namely the big version is expedient for games in which players consider numbers on cards as results of mathematical actions with numerical notations of verticals and horizontals on a board, and the small version is expedient then gamers move numerical cards on squares as figures of chessmen and make playing interactions according to digital values or combinations. But nevertheless both gaming versions can be used for realization of various rules
Brief rules and instructions of several games and puzzles look on one page of this website, or look PDF files with rules in Russian. But also images for printing of numerical cards and game boards there are in PDF files.

Game rules and instructions are written in Russian but in this PDF file there are images or pictures which can be used to play.


I hope that this mathematical board game with numerical cards will be interesting and entertaining!

The shown small version of mathematical game with numbers can be considered as the intellectual construction toy kit or a set of logic puzzles for game programs in children's clubs and pedagogical educational centers of creative development for children. As intellectual development of creative abilities of children by means of the present desktop mathematical game can be carried out in the game form, that allows to interest attention of kids in cognitive gaming process which is entertaining education, but which simultaneously develops logic thinking and creative potential of children brains, and also trains memory and teaches in elementary rules of mathematics.
