This is a project that I made from one that was all ready made. The game is fun to play there is one rule to the game,you do all the math in your head. you play by adding the number that you roll. ( example roll a 5&6 that is 11 so you can lay down 7,3,1 or 9,2 and so on ) object is to get all your number down, what is left you add up. Who ever gets to a certain number,lets say 50 is out. This is a great game to play with your kids or grandkids to help them learn math. The game and dice where made from pine wood thanks for viewing this project.

I guess you keep rolling as long as you can put down numbers. When You can’t use the total of the roll, You are done.

Is that it?

I got to say I hate math, but love the idea of the game. Did you also make the dice yourself?

Very cool. My father loved math and passed it on to his sons and this looks like a great way to pass it on my grandkids.

Very good. Easy game with learning involved. Just the ticket. Just what the kids need. I’ll bet it can be a lot of fun too.

my daughter is teaching a Grade 9 math class and the kids don’t have the basic skills. She’s having a struggle coming up with ideas that are “fun” and helpful. This looks like it fits the bill perfectly.

Nicely executed! My brother found one of these games in his scavengings years ago. The instructions are just as described above. Very simple, and fun for kids (or if you’re creative and no kids are around…a good drinking game!)

Great idea Todd. Nothing like getting the brain to tick over.

I like this a lot. Always a fan of “less is more”.
This project is wonderfully simple, to last
a lifetime. Thanks for sharing.

I played this a cpl month ago and the person had made it with a built in tray for dollar bills in the back of the numbers ( for when Adults Play ) and tray in the front for you to roll the dice into. i have always like the game and have had it on my to do list. thx for the past and reminder.

I make and sell an almost identical version of the same game. It has gone over very well with elementary schools, home schoolers and generally as a party game.

That is a neat game. I wish I saw this earlier. My grand kids are teenagers now and don’t want to play games with us any more.

I do know a friend who has two boys who this would be great for. Can I copy it??
