Activity and game information for parents and teachers
Chain-Links is a strategy card game where the student links cards containing equal values.
Try this app by clicking one of the Activities below.
You start each game with five cards. The object of the game is to get rid of all of your cards. Each card has two parts: a top, and a bottom. A card may be linked with any other card having a matching part, regardless of the position.
In the center of the screen you will see a card. If one of your cards contains a match, drag your card to the center of the screen. If the card matches, it will link up to the other card and you will be asked for another card.
If you do not have any cards which can be linked, draw a card by clicking the deck of cards. You must draw from the deck until you can play a card. If the deck is empty and you cannot play a card, click the "End Game" button.
Points are awarded for each correct link. Points are subtracted for incorrect links. Points are subtracted each second during the game, so it is important to work quickly.
