Race to 100 - a place-value game for three or four
~Renee Goularte ~ original
Materials Needed: a pair of dice and Base Ten Blocks, or, if
not available, use dry lima or kidney beans for ones; popsicle
sticks or straws for tens; one index card with the number "100"
written on it.
Directions: The players consist of one banker and two or three
players. At the start of the game, the banker has all the ones,
tens, and the hundred card. The first player rolls the dice and
adds the numbers. The banker gives the player the number shown
on the dice, represented with beans. For example, if the player
rolls a 3 and a 4, the banker gives him or her 7 beans. The next
player rolls the dice and the play continues. At any point in
the game, when a player has more than ten "ones" (beans),
he must trade them in for a "ten" (a straw). For example,
if a player has 8 beans and rolls a 4 and a 2, the banker gives
the player six more beans, so the player will have 14 beans.
At that point, the player must trade in ten of the beans for
one straw. The game continues until one player reaches 100 and
wins the 100 card. If players wish to play again, the banker
becomes a player and the winner becomes the banker.
