Directions for Playing the Game
1 six sided dice numbered 1-6
Colored counters for each player
Different colored dry erase marker (to use in place of counters) for each player
Scratch paper to work problems (if desired)
Print off cards onto card stock and place in sheet protector for keeping clean. It is cheaper than laminating and when the sheet protector gets icky, you can easily replace it.
Place game board on table or playing surface.
Players (up to 4) roll dice to see who goes first.
Player one rolls the dice then chooses a problem to work in the column of the number rolled.
Player one works the problem (on scratch paper if desired) and says the answer out loud.
Player places a counter on the square if they answer the problem correctly. If they don’t answer correctly, the next player takes their turn.
The object of the game is to get four squares in a row either down, across, or diagonally.
Play continues until there is a winner or until allotted time is up.
This game is excellent to use in math centers as it does not require much direction from the teacher.
Players can use scratch paper to work problems if needed.
There are five different game boards so more than one game can be played at the same time.
