A Fun Numbers Card Game with Cats (and a few rats)
Rat-A-Tat Cat is a card game of suspense, strategy, and anticipation.The object is to get rid of the high cards (rats) and go for the low cards (cats). You can sneak a peek, draw two, or swap cards for an added twist. The lowest score wins the game and a poker face helps!

They learn ways to remember their cards and strategies to figure out what cards other players might have. They also begin to develop an intuitive sense of probability.
