Greedy Pig


Posted by missricho | Posted in Addition, Chance, Games | Posted on December 3, 2014

  • Students get their math books and a pen, the teacher will need to have 2 dice.
  • There is a number decided by the whole group that is the “knock out” number (this is normally 6 in my classes)
  • Students stand up behind their chairs (chairs pushed in) when they are ready to begin the game
  • The dice are rolled and the total of both dice is called out. As each number is called out the students write it down
  • When the student/s decide they have been greedy enough they sit down.
  • Students left standing when the 6 is rolled are out and receive a score of 0
  • Everyone else adds their scores up and the winner is the person with the highest score.

For Example:

2,2,3,4,4,4,6=0 if the student was standing 
2,2,3,4,4,4= 19 if the student sits down before the 6 is rolled.
