Game description

This is another game where children can learn a lot. This time, it is about the mental arithmetic. Who is the fastest and can call out the correct answer first? The game leader places 10 dominos on the table, face down. Then he turns them over one by one. The objective is for the children to add it all up. The number of pips have a numerical value.


10 dominoes might be too easy for some players. To make the game a bit more interesting as well as difficult, just increase the number of dominoes to 20 or 30. It is recommendable that the youth worker works out the correct answer before the game begins. Otherwise, it will be difficult, but most of all, time-consuming if you have to start all over to recalculate. To make the game even more difficult, don’t sum up the pips but multiply them. Who will be Math King?


The winner is who can come up with the correct answer first
