## This game could have been called “250 or Bust!” because 250 is the target.

You will need a coin, two dice and a piece of paper and a pencil.

Take it in turn to roll both dice and to toss the coin.

Here’s what happens next:

**Multiply the two numbers on the dice** – keep the product in your head.

Look at the coin,

- if it is Heads up then
**double**the number in your head; - if the coin is showing Tails then
**treble**the number.

**This is your score.** Write it down.

Here's an example:

You roll a 5 and a 4 - the coin shows **heads**.

5 x 4 **doubled **is 40

You roll a 5 and a 6 - the coin shows **tails**.

5 x 6 **tripled **is 90

NOW

Take it in turns to play, add up your scores as you go. The first person to reach **250 **is the winner.

Don’t forget to celebrate. Maybe the winner gets to keep the coin. (Children: tell your parents you have to play with one of their £2 coins!)
