Tric Trac

Another fun game to practice basic addition facts is Tric Trac. Below are the directions and a picture of the game board. You can easily make your own game board just by writing the numbers out on a piece of paper.



Tric Trac
1. Cover the empty circles with pennies.
2. Take turns. When it is your turn:
  • Roll the dice. Find the total number of dots. This is your sum.
  • Move 1 or your pennies and cover your sum.
  • OR move 2 or more of your pennies and cover any numbers that can be added together to equal your sum.
3. Play continues until no more numbers can be covered on your gameboard. Your partner may continue playing even after you are finished.
4. The game is over when neither player can cover any more of the numbers on his or her gameboard.
5. Find the sum of your uncovered numbers. The player with the lower sum wins.

Tric Trac is also available as an app. You can find it here.
