Money War for Gems

Alexandra and I modified a couple of games we've played before and came up with our own version of "Money War for Gems" which we both really enjoyed. We played it using RightStart's money cards (which is like a deck of cards with real photos of coins - and, most importantly, they are the correct size), dice, and some fake gems (though you could use anything).

Here's how we played. One person rolls a die and that is how many cards each person is dealt. Then, you turn over each card, one at a time, and add them up. The person with the highest total wins a gem and gets to roll the die next. We played until someone collected 10 gems.

This was a great game for both coin recognition and mental addition!
