Here's a game to play with an adult!
How do you play?
You'll need an adult to play with.
You'll also need a board to play on, two 1-6 dice, and counters in two different colours. Alternatively, you could use the interactive version below (scroll down a little).
In this game the winner is the first to complete a row of three, either horizontally, vertically or diagonally.
Roll the dice, place each dice in one of the squares and decide whether you want to add or subtract to produce a total shown on the board. Your total will then be covered with a counter.
You cannot cover a number which has already been covered.
If you are unable to find a total which has not been covered you must Pass.
