For example, in the card game of War, the comparison of number quantity determines which player will collect the two cards that are exposed. The purpose of the game is to collect cards. The procedure requires comparing the greater or lesser value of numbers.

The limits of a game rest in the rigidity of the game structure. The design does not necessarily accommodate differences in skills, in personal timing and pacing, or in attitudes toward the competitive climate that accompanies a win-lose event. Documenting Children's Use of Mathematics During Games Watching children use the mathematical skills called forth in the scoring and playing procedures in games gives us a window through which we can assess the appropriateness of the level of skill required to succeed in playing the game.
