Oh, it’s time for some family FUN! This FUN game is called 100 and will fit the bill perfectly for 3 players and up. It’s for any age that can write their numbers OR roll the dice while a parent writes. Low prep, easy to play and great for any time and anywhere!
Stan’s brother and his wife are some of the most fun people I know. They love to play games as a family and taught us this one a few years back. It’s called 100 and is a terrific game to take along anywhere to play anytime. My daughter Delsi kept it in her backpack for downtime at school. (She also cheats at this game by running away with the pen, but do not follow her bad example, heehee). Now on with the game!!!
2 dice (6 sided dice)
Small pieces of paper, one per player
Pen – one that is smooth such as shown
Directions: Each player takes one piece of paper and rolls ONE die. The high roll begins the game.
The player to the left of the beginner player gets the pen and at “GO” begins to write 1,2,3,4, etc.
Meanwhile the person with the dice is rolling BOTH dice and if the person rolls anything but double SIX’S after rolling, passes the dice to the next person, skipping the person with the pen. The next person quickly rolls, also trying to roll DOUBLE SIXES. If a double six is rolled, the person who rolled it grabs the pen from the person writing and begins to write on their own paper 1,2,3, and on. The next player grabs the dice and rolls. If they get a DOUBLE SIX they grab the pen and write their 1,2,3, etc. If not, the next person gets the dice. If a person rolls DOUBLE SIXES and has already begun to write numbers on their paper, they pick up where they left off.
When a player reaches 100, they shout ONE HUNDRED and wins the game.
