Preparation: Click to print off Game Board
1. All players place their game piece on START. Players roll the die, and the person with the highest number begins the game.
2. The first player rolls the die and moves forward that number of spaces. Then he reads the line that matches the number he rolled.
3. If the line tells the player to do something (such as go back 2 spaces), the player follows the directions. If the line gives a math problem, the player writes the problem on his paper and solves it. For example, if the player rolled a four, he would move forward 4 spaces and solve 428 ÷ 2. He tells if the answer on the game board is correct or incorrect. (This one is incorrect.)
4. Someone else checks his answer with the calculator. If the player is correct, he stays on that space until his next turn. If he is incorrect, he goes back to the space where he began the turn, and that turn is over.
5. Each player follows in the same manner.
6. The game ends when one player reaches END with an exact roll of the die or from a line of instructions.
