7 ATE 9

7 ATE 9
Best Family Fun
Tillywig Award Winner 2017


7 ATE 9 is a fast, exuberantly fun card game in which players race (no turn-taking!) to get rid of all their cards by solving simple math problems. At the outset, a single card is placed face up on the table and the entire deck dealt equally to all players. Each card displays a large yellow number (from 1 through 9) and a smaller number (from 1 through 3) that has both an addition and subtraction sign in front of it. Each card thus generates two equations, and players can play any card from their hand that satisfies the top card's addition or subtraction problem. Though the math is simple, some impressive mental and physical gymnastics occur. The numbers are always changing, with players constantly calculating while surveying the cards and replenishing their hands from their pile as needed. The first player to get rid of all their cards wins. 7 ATE 9 is fast-moving fun that plays extremely well across a range of ages and keeps everyone on the edge of their seats, brain power crackling, from start to finish! For 1 to 4 players.
