Select Game for 1-4 players:

Choose type of game play -- competitive play, competitive scoring game play, speed round, cooperative play, or single play.

*******************************************************************************************

Competitive Play Object:

The first player or team to complete a connected series of four tokens of the same color in a straight line (up, down, across, or diagonally) wins!

2 or 4 Player Competitive Game Play:

In turn, each player rolls 5 twelve-sided dice. Optionally, beginners may utilize only two dice. The player multiplies any two values on the five dice and places a token on the board covering that product. If no tokens may be placed, the player’s turn is skipped. The colors on the board represent the statistical frequency of the relative products and may influence the strategy of play.

Color

Frequency

Yellow

One (i.e., least likely rolled)

Green

Two

Blue

Three

Red

Four

Orange

Five

Purple

Six (i.e., most commonly rolled)

For two player games, each player alternates turns placing tokens based on the product of any two numbers rolled.

For four player games, each team alternates turns. Teammates should not discuss the strategy for token placement.

Play continues in a clockwise direction until one of the players completes four tokens of the same color in a row (vertically, horizontally, or diagonally), and that player or team wins the game!

*******************************************************************************************

Competitive Scoring Play Object:

The first player or team to reach 500 points wins!

2 to 4 Player Competitive Scoring Game Play:

Set up a score sheet on a piece of paper with a column for each player or team. Place the player or team name at the top of each column.

In turn, each player rolls 5 twelve-sided dice. Optionally, beginners may utilize only two dice. The player multiplies any two values on the five dice and places a token on the board covering that product. The product equals the number of points. This encourages players to select higher values and harder multiplication facts. Write the points (product) on the score sheet for that player or team. If no tokens may be placed, the player’s turn is skipped. Add the points in the column for each player or team on each turn. The first player or team to reach 500 points wins the game!

*******************************************************************************************

Speed Play Object:

The first player to complete a connected series of four tokens of the same color in a straight line (up, down, across, or diagonally) wins!

2 Player Speed Game Play:

Each player gets 2 twelve-sided dice. As quickly as possible, players roll the dice, multiply the product, and place a token covering that product. Players re-roll and place chips as fast as they can. The first player to cover four tokens in a row (up, down, across, or diagonally) wins!

*******************************************************************************************

Cooperative Play Object:

Players work together to complete a connected series of nine tokens in a straight line (up/down or across)!

2 to 4 Player Cooperative Game Play:

In turn, each player rolls 5 twelve-sided dice. Optionally, beginners may utilize only two dice. The player multiplies any two values on the five dice and places a token on the board covering that product. If no tokens may be placed, the player’s turn is skipped. The colors on the board represent the statistical frequency of the relative products and may influence the strategy of play. Players work together cooperatively to complete an entire line of nine tokens up/down or across the board to win the game!

*******************************************************************************************

Single Player Game Play Options:

Set a timer for two minutes (or other suitable duration) and roll two dice. Cover each product rolled with a token. Beat another’s record or your previous record!

Roll 5 twelve-sided dice. Multiply any two values on the five dice and place a token on the board covering that product. The product equals the number of points. Score the points on a sheet of paper, and add the points on each turn. Reach 500 points to win the game!
