How to play
The numbers on the table/board hide a picture each. The same 10 pictures are on the scavenger (picture) cards. The players take one each. The players take turns rolling the two dice. They multiply the numbers and find the product on the table. They mark the picture that the product hides on their bingo card. The first player to mark all the pictures on their card wins. Since the products on the table repeat, the players can choose the number with the picture they need to finish their card.
If you cannot find the picture you need with the product you get at your turn you just wait for your next turn.
