Maths card game - Countdown

In this game there are 4 large number cards (25, 50, 75 and 100) and 2 sets of 1-10 number cards. To start players need to pick 6 cards, choosing from either the big or small number pile (a mixture of both). Once 6 cards have been chosen, the target number is generated by choosing 3 small number cards, to make a 3 digit number. The aim of the game is to get to the target number by using the numbers on the cards you have chosen and addition, subtraction, multiplication or division. You can only use each number card once.
A simpler version can be played by removing the large number cards and only generating a 2 digit number.
