Challenge yourself

Total three

An activity for two players.

Equipment: two regular dice, paper and pencil

Players take turns to roll the two dice and complete the following calculations on each roll:

• add the two numbers shown on the dice

• find the difference between the two numbers

• multiply the two numbers

• add the three numbers to produce the score for that round

For example

6 + 3 = 9

6 – 3 = 3

6 x 3 = 18

Score = 9 + 3 + 18 = 30

After 10 rounds the player with the highest total is the winner.

To make the activity more challenging change the type of dice used to 8, 10, 12 or 20 sided.  

Good luck!
