note for Santa saying that all the girls would like a puzzle each
and all the boys would like a book each. They left Santa this
riddle to solve:

EWWNP means Exploring Wild and Wonderful Number Patterns Created by Yourself! Investigate what happens if we create number patterns using some simple rules.
This challenge asks you to investigate the total number of cards that would be sent if four children send one to all three others. How many would be sent if there were five children? Six?
If you had any number of ordinary dice, what are the possible ways of making their totals 6? What would the product of the dice be each time?
