Math City! To play, students use one or two dice (depending on how much challenge they need). You roll, and then build towers equal to that number in any way you can. For example, if you rolled a five, you could just find a “5” space and build a tower of five blocks and be done. But you could also build a 2 and a 3 tower, or a 1 and a 4, and so on. The object of the game is to fill the entire board, and it’s a cooperative game (no one person can win, unless playing solo, it’s up to both players to help each other figure out how to fill the board). Obviously, it gets tougher as the city fills up. If students are playing with two dice, there is the possibility that they could end up with a “1” as the only empty space left, so I’ll make a rule that if that happens, they can just switch to one die and roll until they get it.
I kind of want to find a little Kaiju figure and have a Part 2 to the game…once the city is built, roll to see which towers get destroyed! Except I know that will end badly (and become the point of the game, instead of the math), but I still sort of love the idea.
