      You can use a deck of playing cards: The red cards are negative and the black are positive. Each player starts with 6 cards, drawing one at the beginning of their turn and discarding one at the end. The goal is to play pairs that equal 6 or -6. The person playing 3 pairs first wins.

      Option: The other players add the absolute value of their cards to get a score. The goal is to have the lowest score at the end of the game.
