Roll a 6!

Leave a comment

Did you ever play the Chocolate Game? It was a very popular birthday party game when I was at primary school. You would take turns rolling a die. If you rolled a 6 you would dress up in a silly costume & then use a knife & fork to cut & eat from a block of chocolate. It was a noisy, fast paced game, and we all loved it!

This is NOT that game but reminds me a little of it.

Roll a 6!


Each group will need:
– 1 piece of paper
– 1 die
– 1 pencil

How to Play

– Divide class into groups of 4 or 5
– Hand out equipment needed
– Students sit in a circle
– Students take turns rolling the die
– If they roll a 6 they start writing the numbers 1 – 100 on the piece of paper.
– When someone else rolls a 6 they take over the writing of the number, from wherever the previous person finished.
For example: Student A writes 1 – 12, Student B rolls a 6 so takes over & starts writing 13, 14, 15, etc…until the next person rolls a 6, and so on & on.
– The winner is the student who writes the number 100!


– Instead of rolling a 6, students need to roll a 1 (or any other number you choose)
– Have students write/count by 2s or 5s, instead of 1s
– Have students roll 2 dice. The dice have to add up to 10 for them to start writing (or any other +, – or x that you would like!)
