to use for the game. Players take turns to roll the 2 dice. The player then adds, subtracts, multiplies or divides the 2 numbers on the dice and covers

the number they have created.

For example, if a player throws 2 and 6, they could cover 8 (2+6), 4 (6-2), 12 (2x6) or 3 (6÷2). Play continues until one player has covered every number on their party hat. This player

is the winner.

Help the dinosaurs to munch up the numbers. Players take turns to cover the numbers to make a division equation to fit the pattern in the center of the board, e.g. on a turn a player could cover 18, 3, and 6 for 18 ÷ 3 = 6. Once a number is covered it remains covered. The last player who can cover an equation is the winner.
