Playing Math Games: Pig


We had a beautiful Labor Day weekend and enjoyed a yummy family potluck. My body is sore from playing badminton and frisbee with 5 thru 8 year olds. I'm still recovering but we had a great time.


Of course we couldn't have a three day weekend without brushing up on some math, so we played a game called Pig.

How To Play: Math Pig
All you need is 2 dice and paper for keeping score.

Players take turns rolling the dice as they mentally keep track of the sums of the two dice. Players may take as many turns as they like, but if they roll a one their score for that round will be zero. The first player to get sums to 100 wins. 

We only played to 50 and Alexis beat me three times.
