Product Description
21 Chips is a fun classroom game where players alternate turns using strategy to be the last to take chips.

I use 21 Chips it at the end of the day or end of the class as a challenge.

I, of course, claim that I’m just lucky when I win every time, but the kids don’t believe it and are motivated to look for the solution.

Play this game with students while waiting in line for the bus or at recess. Your students will be looking for the pattern but it will take some time, days, maybe even weeks, to figure it out!

Included in this download:
-Game rules
-Teacher tips including the pattern so you look "lucky" every time you win!
-A step-by-step example with full color photos to walk you through the strategy of the game

If you like this download, check out our Veintiuno game also available for download on Teachers Pay Teachers. Kids go just as crazy over finding the solution and it can be played anywhere!
