Product Description
When math book writers say they developed a math game, I, as a board game enthusiast, generally take offense. Most of their games are not games at all, at least not games that have a lasting appeal.

Not so with this one.

King's Blessing is a game that requires a complex understanding of equivalent fractions. Players roll dice and form a proper fraction from the roll. With this fraction (which represents a fraction of a day's work), players choose which tasks to work on for the day, all the while trying to finish the task before the other player. The player who completes four tasks first, wins the game and receives the King's blessing.

I firmly believe that playing this game will allow any student to understand the complex thinking around equivalent fractions. With this download, you receive the instruction sheet as well as the full game board. You may wish to laminate the board and play with dry erase markers, or you can not laminate it and play with colored pencils.

NOTE: This game requires two dice to play which are obviously not included in this download. This game hits the 4th grade standard of fraction denominators so a custom dice is necessary to play (as well as a "normal" six-sided die). I bought a bunch of blank dice with stickers off of Amazon.

Or, if you choose, download my free nets of dice for this game. Just don't let kids put them in their backpacks.
