Game description

This game makes the most fun if nobody but the game leader knows the rules. This game does not depend on luck or skill but on observation to work out the system behind it. Sequentially the players cast their dice and then the team leader tells the child how many polar bears, holes or fish he has cast. For example, the number 1 has no polar bears but a hole and six fish. 2 is two polar bears and 5 fish but no hole. The solution: The number of fish arises from the opposite side of the dice. The numbers on the top stand for the holes and the number at the side of the dice stand for the polar bears.


This game can also be played in teams. The team discovering the underlying system first wins.
