How to play

Two types of sheets are proposed. From the first two, we select the pieces and reproduce the sheets, paying attention on the rod s pieces shape, colour and number. With the other two sheets, we search as many pieces as the number and colour indicates and we reproduce them. We may introduce the concept of unit, tens and hundreds and the positional numbering system on the abacus.
