24 Game - Help!

Ok, friends, I need your help!

I need:
-4 numbers, single-digit only (0-9)  ETA: oops, no zeros!
-must equal 24 by using any of the 4 operations + - x ÷
-use parentheses where needed

Examples:
1 x 2 x 3 x 4

(0 x 1) + (6 x 4) 

I want a game called "24 Game" but do NOT want to pay $22 for it! So I will make my own game on cardstock. =)
The four numbers are written in a circle that has an X across it, one number in each ¼ of the circle. Each player draws a card then figures out the order of operations to get 24.

I need as many different combinations of numbers as possible, so leave me a comment with as many as you can think of.  You can post anonymously if you like.  =)

Thanks! =)

ETA:  Combinations were given by a friend in the comments, but I didn't see any zeros, so I was wrong about that part.  Ignore it, please.  =)

  1. Marty,

    I have a deck. I can give you the numerals on the cards but not the order of operations, because I'm not that talented : )

    There's 96 double-sided cards so that should keep your crew busy : )

  2. Oh, wow! Thanks!
    You don't have to do all of them. I'm assuming there are 2-digit numbers if you have that many cards. I'm fine w/ the single digit ones. Just want to practice order of operations with using parentheses.
    You're amazing, castiron! =)

    Just however you want to get them to me. Comment, email, other... whatever is fine.

  3. Mine are the single digit cards. It didn't take me long at all to type as I listened to my podcasts in the background : )

  5. Thank you so much!
    Wow, I can't believe there could be that many combinations of single-digit numbers that can make 24.
    Awesome. =)

    HA! I have 3 points. Your turn. lol.

    Hmmm... I should check Goodwill more often. =D
