Maths Magicians

This week we have learnt a new game to practise our 4 times tables.

It’s called Double Double and all you need is a dice and some paper to play.

Here are the rules:

  • The aim of the game is to cover four numbers in a row, either horizontally, vertically or diagonally.
  • The first player rolls the dice and chooses to either double the number that is shown or double-double the number. For example, if a 3 turns up then the player may double it to make 6, or double-double the 3 to make 12 and cover the number.
  • The second player then rolls the dice and does the same. If a number is already covered, then the player cannot place another counter on the same spot.
  • Play continues until one player has four counters in a row, diagonally, horizontally or vertically.

Why not challenge your family and friends to a game of Double Double!
