Dice 1 to 100The object of the game is to be the first person to write the numbers 1 to 100.
2-6 Sided Dice
1 piece of paper
Gather your materials. On the piece of paper write everyone's names in a column on the left (down the left hand side of the paper). Leave a few spaces or lines between each name.
How to Play:
1. Have all the players stand around a table in a circle, or sit in a circle. If you sit, be sure you are on a hard surface.
2. The first person rolls the dice, trying to roll doubles. If they don't, the dice is passed to the next player who tries to roll for doubles.
3. The dice continues to be passed around the circle until someone rolls doubles.
4. When doubles are rolled, that person grabs the paper and pen and starts to write the numbers 1, 2, 3, 4, 5, 6, etc... all the way to 100, BY THEIR NAME.
5. THE CATCH - while the person is writing, the dice is continuing around the circle. As soon as another person rolls doubles, they "steal" the paper and pen and start writing their own list of numbers by their name. Starting with 1.
6. The game continues in this fashion. The dice is always being passed, the paper and pen being "stolen" whenever someone rolls doubles.
7. The first person to be able to write all the numbers, 1 to 100 WINS!
After the paper is stolen from you, and then you roll doubles again and get the paper back, you get to pick up with the number you left off on. You don't start back with 1. If you left off on 73, then you start your next turn by writing 74.
For our two year old, I write all the numbers next to her name before the game starts. When she rolls doubles she has to put a line through the numbers instead of writing them. Or, we have her circle the numbers instead of writing them. She loves it.
You don't have to write the numbers all the way to 100. If you have small children, they can write to 10, or 20 while the adults write to 50 or all the way to 100.
Or...while the adults write to 100, young children have to write to 5, 10 times.
You get the picture.
You could also have kids write other things, draw shapes, anything goes.
Have a wonderful weekend.
