Mixed Up Multiples

This game can be played with multiples of any number. Write out all the multiples in a mixed-up fashion on a piece of paper. Write the factors on to post-it notes (1x, 2x, 3x… up to 12x). The aim is to cover the multiple with the correct factor in the quickest time possible. This game can be played against another player or by yourself simply trying to beat your own best time.
