dice game

My students really enjoy playing this game. The only problem is that you might have to regroup.....They use two dice a white one that represents the ones and a red dice that represents the tens. EX Red dice 4White dice 3 equals the number 43 Then they collect 4tens (longs) and 3 units. On their next roll they add to the number that they have. This is where they would have to make the exchanges.
They started with 43 and rolled Red 5 and white 2. This means add 43+52...and so on until someone reaches 100 or 1000. The really neat thing is that you can give your better math students dice with larger numbers and everyone is playing the same game. If they don't make the correct exchange and their partner catches them they have to go back to zero. This looks confusing, but it is fun.
