Dead Dice


Learning aim of game: addition

You will need: 6 Dice, paper and pen

How many players: 2 players


How to play:

Player 1 rolls all six dice.

If a 6 or a 1 is rolled then those dice are removed (dead) then player 1 adds up the remaining total. Player 1 keeps rolling the dice and adds it to a running total -removing any dice that land on a 1 or a 6- until there are no dice left.

It is then player 2’s go. They roll the dice and keep on adding up the numbers removing any dice that land on a 1 or a 6.

The winner is the player with the highest total at the end.
