**How to play:**

Take turns to roll the two dice. Do the following calculations each time you roll:

- Find the difference between the two numbers
- Multiply the two numbers OR skip count (Grade 1)
- Add the three numbers to get a score for that round

After 10 rounds the player with the highest total is the winner.

**Variations: **

- To make the activity more challenging use 8, 10, 12 or 20-sided dice

**For example:**

Roll 6 and 3

6 + 3 = 9

6 – 3 = 3

6 x 3 = 18 OR

6, 12, 18 (3, 6, 9, 12, 15, 18)

Score is:

9 + 3 + 18 = 30
