Math Game- Elimination

Happy Holidays Everyone!!

One week of winter break FLEW by!  All my shopping is done (I think) and now I can relax... just for a second... I now I have to finish wrapping and then start cooking for the party tomorrow.  Ok, not like Holiday Sangria is considered cooking, more like slice and dice and pour. :)

The game board I have made for you today is a very simple.  It is a two player math dice game called Elimination. 


Here are the directions and free downloadable game board...


Number of Students: 2

Materials: Two dice, game board, markers (as in chips, place holders)

How to Play:

1.  Students cover all 12 spots of their side of the game board with a marker of some sort.

2.  Students take turns rolling the dice.

3.  They may use any operation to get answers.

4.  The object is to be the first to remove all the markers off their side of the board.


  1. Thanks, Mary:
    It's already printed!
    I think I will have my higher group use three dice and use order of operations...
    Thanks for your great ideas and your generous sharing.
