Cross Out – a Math Dice Game

Game in a Nutshell:

Cross Out is an enjoyable dice game used to practice Addition strategies where students aim to be the first to cross off all the digits between 1 and 9 on their game sheet.
 

What You Need:

2 players
2 pieces of scratch paper
2 pencils
2 dice

Preparation:

Both players write the numbers 1 to 9 across the top of their paper.

How to Play:

  1. Player One rolls the dice and adds the digits together. Then add the digits together and cross off the actual number or combination of numbers equal to the sum.  For example, if a player rolls a 4 and a 6, the sum is 10. They could cross off any of the facts to 10 like 1 & 9, 2 & 8, 3 & 7 etc. If they threw a 6 they could cross off just a 6 if they wished to or 5 & 1, 4 & 2, or a single 3.
  2. Player Two then repeats Step 1.
  3. Play continues in this turn about fashion until one player crosses out all their numbers.
How to Win:
 
The first player to cross off all their numbers is declared the winner.

Teacher Tip:

  • Have the students play best of three rounds.

Variations:

  • Use factors – Have students cross off factors of the number thrown e.g. If a 10 is thrown they can cross off 10 & 1 or 2 & 5.
     
  • Subtraction – Have students work out rules and play the game based on Subtraction e.g. all numbers thrown must be subtracted from 18. What numbers need to be written across the page? Why will 17 never be crossed out? What to do with 17?
