🎴 The Mathic Cards:

There are 100 Mathic cards in six groups: 52 Basic, 10 Rounding, 10 Greater Than/Less Than, 10 Greater Than/Less Than or Equal to, 10 Multiple of, and 8 Number Cards. Cards turn into numbers when they are placed on the equation board.

  1. Basic Cards are whole number cards, numbered from 0 to 12, in the usual suits (clubs, diamonds, hearts, and spades). These cards are basic, because they can only be the number represented on the card.

There are 48 special cards that follow specific rules and can be many different numbers. When they are placed on the equation board, you'll need to declare the number that matches the card or the equation will not compute.

  1. Rounding Cards can be any number that rounds to the number on the card like ~10.

  2. Greater Than/Less Than Cards can be any number greater than/less than the number on the card like <1 and >1,000)

  3. Greater Than/Less Than or Equal to Cards can be any number greater than/less than or equal to the number on the card like ≤5 and ≥100)

  4. Multiple of Cards can be any number that is a multiple of (or divisible by) the number on the card. (e.g., Multiple of Three - Twelve)

  5. Number Cards can be any number that matches the card: They are composite number, prime number, even number, odd number, and square number. Sample numbers listed in the appendix.
