#scienceFTW Watch Us Play #1: Koi Koi

Yesterday we held the first of 20 sessions in our new #scienceFTW program. I will occasionally post here about the program, share images like the one below, and often post “homework” for the participants, as with this post (feel free to follow along at home):

#scienceFTW @AMNH has begun! 20 sessions of after school science through card game awesomeness.
In this first #scienceFTW Watch Us Play video (to support our new after school program and its required homework), Shepard and Barry explain the basics of playing the Japanese card game Koi Koi. (For some reason Shepard was cut out of most of the shot, and we’ll try to make sure that doesn’t happen in the future.)

Please look at one set of rules here, which includes the handy dandy Table of Cards and Suits below:

That page also, at the bottom, links to an online version, but I think it moves too fast to teach how the game works. We recommend Kiki’s Koi-Koi, a mobile app, which has an excellent tutotial (for $1.99), if you want to learn fast.
