This game is the ideal way to practice. Use a deck of cards with suit cards removed. Ace counts for one. Give all cards to all players. Each player turns over the cards at the same time and the two numbers are multiplied together. If the answer is under 30, players under 30 get a card. If more than 30, the player keeps more than 30 cards.
