The Seniora Asked for Five Eighths with Tomatoes!
In this adorable game you are going to have to exert a little effort, since you are working for the famous, well-respected Italian pizzeria called Splittissimo. Its picky clients love to order pizza in portions rather than whole. As a result, you will have to get so acquainted with fractions and decimals that you will be unlike any other.
The game set is designed in a charming Italian style. It includes both rectangular cards with orders on them and original round cards as well. These are trays with different amounts of pizza slices on them. On top of cheese and olives, the pizzas include tomatoes, mushrooms, and peppers in various combinations, each with two ingredients on them.
Splittissimo is the Fastest, Most Accurate Delivery!
Splittissimo includes several game options.
We’ll start with the easiest. If you’re playing with children five years and up, take only round cards. The beginner level cards are marked with one dot (to make it harder, later add in cards with two or three dots). Each player takes three cards and they place the same amount of cards onto the table (on the hard level, four cards should be taken and put onto the table) and all cards must be placed face up. The player’s job is to assemble a pizza in the playing field, using several different cards, that is equal in the amount of slices as one of his or her own pizzas. Or, the other way around, you can choose one pizza in the playing field and assemble it using your cards.
In the rules with kids between 8 and 10, you need to use rectangular order cards. The player’s job is to assemble the order out of the pizzas contained on the playing field, keeping not only their size in mind, but also their ingredients. Several special cards add some pizzazz to the game, which allow you to slow down your competitor’s work and also accelerate your own using “hot” orders.
All versions of the game end with you counting up how many whole pizzas you have. In other words, you will have to add all remaining slices into the pizza, which means consolidating fraction addition once again.
