Preparation:

To Play:

  1. Decide who plays first. Player with the shortest name starts. Decide how long the game will last.  Set a timer if necessary.
  2. The first player draws a card, reads the division problem and calls out the answer.
  3. The other player uses the calculator to check Player 1’s answer. If his answer is correct, Player 1 draws a line segment on the game board. If the answer is incorrect, he does not draw a line and his turn is over.
  4. Player 2 takes a turn using the same method.
  5. Continue to play.  The player who draws a line that finishes a 4-sided box writes his initials in that box.  When a player completes a box, he also gets to draw an extra line on the game board.
  6. At the end of playing time, players calculate their score.  Each box with a duck inside is worth 3 points.  Each box with initials only is worth 1 point. The player with the most points wins.

6 ÷ 2 = 3
