Leeping Tweens

Christopher's favorite game right now is a card game called Sleeping Queens. He wants to play it at every possible opportunity, and runs around while I am making dinner asking "Play Leeping Tweens?" It is so hard to say no. While playing, he's like a little broken record - "My turn? My turn?" - even after he has just played.
The game is actually for 8 year olds, and involves some pretty complicated moves. He has mastered everything except for the adding part. To increase the turnover of cards in your hand, you can discard sums (like 3, 4 and 7). Christopher is well aware that he doesn't get it, but it doesn't bother him in the least. Nor does he get too upset if he loses.
Believe it or not, I have actually looked up and found both Benjamin and Christopher playing it together (!) nicely (!).
