Add 'Em Up Dice

Each player rolls a pair of dice, then uses the numbers shown either individually or by adding them together to decide which of the numbers to cross off the list. Roll a six and three, decide whether to cross off the six and three or just the nine. This offers the cognitive challenge of adding the numbers together, as well as using reasoning to decide which to cross off the list. The game can be played in an easier format by using only one die and the numbers one through six.

Match 'Em Up Dice

In this game, the person selects two numbers and then rolls the dice trying to match the numbers chosen. Each time there is a match the die is removed, and the roll recorded on the scorecard. The game continues until all the dice are removed. See how few rolls you can do it in!

Poker Hand Dice

Poker Hand Dice is a little more challenging. The object is to use the five dice to make the best poker hand possible, in as few rolls as possible. The instructions describe how to do this and the scorecard helps you keep track of each "hand".
