Ed from St Peter's College noticed a pattern:
Most of the counters landed on the same card but there was one counter which landed on a different card. We repeated this game three times and in total four counters landed on differnt cards. In one instance the counters all finished on the same card. This happens because every card has a different number, so they all land on the same numbered cards, so that again would change their path to the same card. From this we have gathered that counters do land on the same card most times. :D
Tom from Wilson School developed a strategy:You could put all the high numbers near the start and the low numbers nearer the end so that some will land on the end one some may not, it would be best to do a mixture of aces at the end. However if you did only aces near the end you would get all your counters to the end. The last card would have to be 1 more than you have to move. If it is one until the end you would have to put a number two there; if you were two from the end, a number 3 and so on.
All you need for this game is a pack of cards. While you play the game, think about strategies that will increase your chances of winning.
This is a game for two players. Does it matter where the target is put? Is there a good strategy for winning?
Can you beat Piggy in this simple dice game? Can you figure out Piggy's strategy, and is there a better one?
