You’ve just watched Carla and Ryan, two teenagers who really enjoy playing “Battle”!

This numeracy activity allows identification relative to the value of a number brick and comparison between two bricks to determine numerical value and rank.

  • To start the game, each player randomly picks six number bricks and builds a tower with all of them.

  • Both participants remove their top brick and place it on the base plate.

  • They read aloud and compare numbers.

  • The player with the highest number captures both bricks and adds them underneath to build their tower higher.

  • With a tie, players compare the next bricks. The winner captures all four bricks.

Activity is over when one player has all the bricks!
