pig out!

No, I'm not talking about pigging out with food! This "pig out" is a fun math game that you can use for addition or multiplication.

Here’s how to play:

1. roll one die to see who goes first. the player with the highest number goes first. give each player their own game board.

2. player one rolls both dice and writes down the equation in the first column, writes the sum/product in the second column and the total amount (running total) in the third column.

3. after player one’s turn, he/she decides if he/she wants to roll again (play) or pass to the second player.

4. if the player chooses to pass, he/she must pass the dice to their partner to end their turn. If he/she chooses to play, he/she will roll the dice again and add the new sum/product to their previous score.

5. don’t Pig Out!! if the player rolls one (1), he/she loses their turn.

if he/she rolls two 1s (pig eyes), he/she loses their points and must begin again at zero.

6. Take turns repeating steps 2-5.

7. The winner is the first person to score at least 100 points or the agreed upon score.
