Tenzi is a new dice game we are loving this week. In this game everyone has 10 x 6 sided die and a plastic cup. This idea is that everyone shakes and rolls (at the same time) and the first person with all die on the same number wins. Obviously this could take a long time and we only have so much patience (we are only 4 and 5!)- so we have modified the game (and I think added something extra) On our first roll we look at our dice and work out which number we have the most of. Then we keep those aside and return the remainder to the cup and keep rolling and sorting until all dice are the same number. We are playing this game with dotted dice, not the numeral dice. This helps us to learn to subitize the numbers to 6. We took this game to the hospital and it was a hit with the residents as well.
