This game provides a fun environment for practicing integer addition. It also prepares students to play Attack & Defend with integer subtraction, where it is essential. In the context of subtraction, the game will give students extensive practice drawing pictures to represent the result of each card that is played. The pictures teach students the deep similarities and differences between integer addition and subtraction. It would be a mistake to ask students to learn the rules of the game AND how to draw pictures for subtraction at the same time. That's why it's good to introduce the game now with addition--so students learn how to play (and keep score) before they have to play the game with subtraction.
