Product Description:

This fun card game is simple to learn and easy to play and as an added bonus, kids will become more familiar and comfortable with money. Game play is similar to Uno, with players trying to discard cards in their hands by matching either the color or money amount on the previously played card. Each player is dealt 7 cards and the rest of the deck becomes the draw pile, with one card overturned to start the discard pile. The deck is composed of 110 cards, with cards featuring all coin types (from pennies to half dollars), $1.00 cards, wild cards, loose change cards (with varying amounts of odd change), tax collection cards, and bank withdrawal cards. Play goes clockwise, each player trying to be the first to empty their hand. You can match the money amount, either by playing the same coin or by announcing "Exact Change" and playing several cards that add up to the previously played card, or you can match the color. If you cannot discard, you must draw cards until you can play. Wild cards can be anything, but you must announce the color and amount when you play them. Tax collection cards force all other players to draw one card from the draw deck, and bank withdrawal cards forces an opponent of your choice to randomly draw a card from your hand. When one player runs out of cards, the round is over and they pick another player's hand, total the cards remaining and this becomes the balance in the bank account of the player who went out. The first player to "save" $2.00 is the winner. 2-6 players. ~ Megan

This is a necessary life skill. I have a kid that is struggling with counting money. However he does very well with game based learning .

I love incorporating math games into our study of math! It breaks up the lessons and is fun review of skills already learned or it helps to cement the skills we are currently working on.

Great Game
Like the other reviewer said, it is similar to Uno - you can match cards by color, by the coin(s)/dollar on its face, or use multiple cards that add up to exact change (ex: card on discard pile has a half-dollar; you can lay down however many cards in your hand that add up to $0.50). My 6 year old loves it and has asked to play it multiple times since we opened it. Great for improving money math skills.
