# Penguins! A game for the whole family

Happy Monday, all!

In a time when we find ourselves spending more time together, learning and thinking and playing together at home, I wanted to share a game that is appropriate for players of all ages. The game *“Penguins!”* is strategic and fun for the whole family!

To play you’ll need 2 regular 6-sided dice and some counters. They can be beans coloured on one side with a marker, or even some Cheerios and some Shreddies cereal. It’s a good idea to have a piece of paper and a pencil handy for calculations.

Here’s how to play (full instructions are included on the *“Penguins!”* game board):

Roll the dice. Look at the numbers.

Find the **sum** and write it down. (add the numbers)

Find the **difference** and write it down. (subtract one number from the other)

Find the **product** and write it down. (multiply the numbers)

Now decide which **one** of these answers (the sum, the difference or the product) you will use. **You can only pick one!** Cover that number in your colour. Let your partner have a turn. If your sum AND your difference AND your product are taken, you can cover a penguin instead! Three in a line in your colour wins the game.

Have fun!
