Area dice game
February 02, 2017
2 different colour pens/pencils
A sheet of graph paper
A willing participant
Split the graph paper in two equal parts by drawing a line in the middle.
This line creates territory!
Each player takes it in turn to roll the two dice.
A bit like tetris, the player draws a rectangle or square that has dimensions of the numbers shown in their own territory.
The player who crosses over into the oppositions territory first loses the game!
Each player takes it in turn to roll two dice.
You get 5 rolls each, and your aim is to build the tallest tower that you possibly can.
Extension: multiply the dice to get the area first. Draw ANY regular shape of your choice with that area - using only whole, half, and quarter squares. Be creative for extra points and kudos. Would it be possible to draw a 10 sided shape with only whole, half, and quarter sqaures?
