Buy a pack of Skip-Bo cards or regular deck will work just fine. Divide cards like you would for war. When you both flip the cards up, multiply by whatever number you want him to work on and don't change the number for the duration of the game. Whoever's product is higher, wins the round & keep going until all the cards are gone or like war, you can play until someone runs out of cards. When playing with a regular deck, Jacks= 0, Queens = 1, Kings = 11 and Aces = 12
My son was having HUGE problems with memorizing until I came across this game online & now he's memorizing much faster than studying flashcards. It's fun & kids find war extremely competitive. Good luck!
