St. Patrick’s Day Pot O’ Gold Game Freebie
This is a 2 player game. Each player takes a game board (a pot of gold). 1, 2, or 3 dice are needed for this game. For younger students, roll one die and place the correct number of coins on their pot of gold. Older students can roll 2 or 3 die and add the numbers together to get the number of coins they should take. When all of the coins are gone, the students count the coins on their game board. The player with the most coins wins.
