Let 'er Roll! by Kathi Wagner and Aubrey Wagner

This game offers equal chances of winning to all the players, and you can have as many as six people join the game. Here is what you will need to play:

• Piece of paper and pencil for each player

• Pair of dice

• Pennies for covering game card

You also need to make a game card for each player. To do that, draw a five-squares-by-five-squares grid — you can use a ruler to make the lines straight, but it doesn't matter if they're wobbly. Then, have one player read the following list of numbers:

1, 36, 9, 24, 18, 8, 6, 15, 30, 25, 10, 24, 18, 6, 3, 12, 2, 4, 12, 16, 9, 12, 16, 9, 12, 20, 6, 10

As each number is called out, each player should write it down in any one of the squares in the grid, until all the spaces are filled. Some numbers will appear twice.

Once you are done, the game can begin. Players take turn rolling the two dice, multiplying the two results, and then covering one number on the grid. The first one to cover five squares in a row (in any direction) is the winner.
