Final Count Down

3.4 based on 47 ratings

What You Need:

  • Scratch paper, 1 sheet per player
  • Pencils, 1 per player
  • 2 Dice
  • 1 Sheet of paper for score keeping

What You Do:

  1. Ask each player to write the number "99" at the top of their scratch paper.
  2. Have the first player roll both dice, and add them together to find the sum. Then, have them subtract the sum from their starting number of 99. After figuring out their result, they record the number remaining on their scratch paper. For example: if they roll a 4 and 5, 4 + 5 = 9, 99 - 9 = 90. They would write 90.)
  3. Have each player take a turn rolling the dice and computing their results.
  4. The first player to get to zero wins!

Variation: To make the game more challenging, use three dice.
