- Race-Rush printout.
- cards (cut the cards and make a draw pile).
- Two 6-face dice.
- A small object for position marking.
The players each choose a small object to use as their position marker (a button, a pebble, toy piece) and roll the dice to decide who will go first.
Shuffle the cards and keep them face down as a draw pile.
On their turn, the players roll the dice and draw a card. The dice roll tells them how many spaces they can move through (choose from) and the card what kind of number they can stop at.
For example, if you roll a 5 and you are on 11, then you can move to 12, 13, 14, 15, or 16. If your card says “a prime number”, then you must find a prime number among these five numbers. If one of them is prime then you land on it, otherwise, you stay at your previous position.
Put the used cards in a discard pile to shuffle and use them as a new draw pile.
The cards have several options like,
The prime and square numbers are marked with green and yellow.
The goal is to be the first one to reach a hundred.
