Directions for Playing the Game 1. Print off cards onto card stock, place into sheet protector or laminate for durability. Note: A sheet protector works well because you can replace it when it gets dirty. 2. Players roll six sided dice to see who goes first. 3. Player one rolls the dice. They then choose a problem in the corresponding column of the number they rolled. They try to answer the problem. If correct, they place a counter on the square. Note: You can also use different colors of dry erase markers to mark the squares. A different color is needed for each player up to three maximum. 4. Play continues until one player gets four squares in a row either down, across, or diagonally. That player is the winner of the game.
