Game description

The group takes turn to count to 100. If a number comes which can be divided through 6 or has a 6 in it, the player says „oops“. This obviously works with all other numbers as well and is perfect for little maths geniuses. You can also request that the number is said within 1-2 seconds to increase the excitement.


As an alternative, the number is simply missed out and the next number is called. If the game is played quickly, it becomes more difficult. It becomes even more difficult if all numbers which can be divided through 7 (4) are shouted out as “ping”, and all numbers through 6 are called “pong”.


no scoring is necessary. It would however be possible to eliminate players from the game or to collect minus points.
