      Make a game of it.
      Use playing cards. Deal out an equal number of cards to each player. Take turns.
      On his/her turn, the player places two cards face up and says the sum (or difference).
      The player with the greater sum (or difference) gets the cards.
      You can adapt the game on this video to be played with playing cards.
