Going to Boston

Bring some dice to dinner for this fun math-based game!

Set a goal number (100 is a popular choice). The object of the game is to be the first player to reach the goal.

Going around the table, each player takes a turn:

  1. Roll three dice. Set aside the highest number.
  2. Roll the remaining two dice. Again, set aside the higher number.
  3. Roll the final remaining die.
  4. Add the three numbers together. That’s your score for the round.

Keep going around until somebody’s scores add up to the goal number or greater. For variations on the game, you could start from a number like 100 and subtract the scores until you reach zero, or use two dice and multiply them to get your score for each round.
