More Less is More printable sheet - game instructions
More Less is More printable sheet - blank grids
These games follow on from Less is More.
Just as before, you will be able to choose between two versions of each game:
- In Version 1, you place the numbers after each throw of the dice.
- In Version 2:
Start by imagining that you have thrown the numbers 1-8 and provide a convincing argument that you have got the highest possible score - a clue is given in the hints.
Then, play the game just as you did in Version 1, but this time note down all eight dice rolls before deciding where to place them.
In all cases, you score if the sentence is correct. The score is the result of the calculation on the left of the inequality sign (blue boxes). See the hint for some examples of scoring.
