PRODUCT DESCRIPTION

Pig: Mental Addition and Critical Thinking
The goal of Pig is to be the first player to get to 100. The game is played with a pair of dice, and requires a paper and pencil for scoring.

1. The first player rolls the dice, calculates the sum (mentally), then rolls again if he or she wants to. The next sum is added to the first. The player can roll as often as s/he wants to before play goes to the next turn. However...

2. If a 1 comes up on one of the dice before the player decides to stop rolling, the player scores 0 for that round. The play goes to the next player.

3. Worse still, if a 1 comes up on both of the dice, the turn ends and the player's entire total falls to 0.

Lead a class discussion about strategies used in Pig and how opponents need to be able to use mental math to check that the roller is playing fairly.
