Lilly’s Game – Four in a Row -Mixed Operations

Summary

A wonderful game created by Lilly Aged 9!

Lilly’s Connect Four Game – Mixed Operations

The Game was created by Lilly, age 9

What you need…

  • 1-100 grid as the game board (download here – 1-100 grid)
  • Two 1-10 dice and one 0-9 dice
  • Counters – two colours

Players take turns to roll the three dice.

The dice can then be used to create…

  • A two-digit number and a single digit number

OR

  • Three single digit numbers

Using the numbers created from throwing the dice you can then use any operation (add / subtract / multiply / divide) to find a single number that must be on the 1-100 grid. You place one of your counters on this number.

The aim of the game is to be the first to get two sets of four of your counters in a row to win!

E.g., if you throw a 4, 7 and 9, you could place a counter on one of the following:

  • (7 x 9) + 4 = 67
  • (7 x 9) – 4 = 63
  • (9 – 4 ) x 7 = 35
  • (9 – 7 ) x 4 = 8
  • 9 + 7 + 4 = 20
  • 97 – 4 = 93
  • 79 + 4 = 83
  • 49 + 7 = 56
  • And all other combinations you can think of… you must use all the numbers on all three dice!
