I am not clear on the directions. Students subtract the bigger number from the smaller number? Do you need a set of dice up to 20? I assume with the numbers to 20 on the game board you will need that. Thanks. I will adapt accordingly.
Hi there. No you do not need a set of dice up to 20. Students roll a normal dice and move that many spaces. When they get to that egg they subtract the bigger number from the smaller number using the number on the dice and the number on the egg. It doesn't matter if the egg or the dice has the smaller or larger number, they just subtract the two. Does that help?

QUESTIONS AND ANSWERS:
Thank you for sharing your game. I must admit that I am trying my hardest to understandt how to play; but it's not working very well! There are numbers on the eggs. If students are only rolling one die, how do they know where do they get the other number to subtract (or subtract from)? It appears as though the biggest pink egg is the start. If they roll a "6" for example, do they move 6 and then use that "2" on the egg to subtract from the 6? The directions state that they roll, subtract, and then move. Thank you for helping clear this up! It's so cutely designed, I would really like to use it! :)
Hi! The big pink is the start, yes. If a player rolls a 6, they move 6 spaces and subtract the bigger number from the smaller number. So with your example, they would do 6-2. If they landed on a space with say 20, they would do 20-6. I'm sorry the way I had it worded didn't make it seem that they should roll, move, then subtract, but yes, that's the way it can best be played. I hope this helps!
