Hi! It's Brittney again from Games4Gains.com.
I hope that you enjoyed our Equivalent Fractions Squares Game from the last email. If you had a chance to play it with your students, I'd love to know how it went! *Just hit "reply" to this email and let me know!*
Today I have another super easytouse game for you to use for practicing order of operations. All you need to play is just a deck of cards and 6 index cards.
How to play Order of Operations War:
Number of players: 2
Setup:
1. Grab a deck of cards and remove all of the face cards (jacks, queens, kings, and jokers). Shuffle the cards and deal them evenly between the two players. The players may not look at their cards and must leave their cards in a pile facedown.
2. Grab 6 index cards and cut them into 12 halves. Write + on 2 of the halves,  on two of the halves, x on two of the halves, ÷ on two of the halves, ( on two of the halves, and ) on two of the halves. Give each player one card of each; each player gets +, , x, ÷, ( and ), as shown below.
 Note: If you want to play this game with younger students, you could remove the x and ÷ cards and the parentheses cards.
