Smithsonian: The Math of Spot It!
I spent some time earlier this year playing Spot It! with my sister-in-law. It is really a fun and quick moving little game. You try to be the first to match a picture on your card with one that has just been turned face up. With so few pictures on each card, it didn't seem possible that every time one person or the other would have a match, but there it was. When I got my husband to try it, he liked it, but almost immediately went off mumbling about the Math of it.
It turns out he was right! It's all some diabolical math game. Arrgghh!
