Unlike a lot of making-change-money-games that deal only with coins, this game goes for dollars and cents and is a lot more challenging. Cards are drawn that tell what was purchased and the price and the amount of money paid. Players race to be the first to put up the change one would get with the toy money each player has for shopping. Be the first to get the amount right and you get the card. Winner is the one with most cards at the end of play. The subtitle of this game is rightfully called a game of speed and subtraction. A playful way to build math skills. Marked for 5 and up, we’d say it’s really more like a game for 2nd and third graders.
