Get 1000 the game

My dad is a great teacher, not too long ago he taught me this game he was having his class play. To play you need a dice, pencils, and paper.

Pencil, paper and dice
All the equipment you need.

The game is quite simple, but complicated to master. It works like this:

  • Everyone draws a 3 by 3 table.
  • The dice is rolled and everyone places the rolled value in one of the empty positions in the table. Everyone has to place the value before the next roll.
  • This is repeated until every position in the table is filled.
  • To find your result you add your rows.

A game
A finished game with score 991.

  • The above table would result in the final sum of 123 + 634 + 234 = 991.
  • The winner is the player with the result closest to 1000. This means that 1001 beats 990 and 951 beats 1051 and so on. It is the distance from 1000 that matters.

To play decent in this game, some knowledge of addition is required. To play well you also need to figure out when it is best to play risky, and when to play safe. This is much harder than it may look.

I really hope that after reading this you will try to play this with your friends. If you have no friends willing to play nearby, you can try my asynchronous version.
