Place all the wooden squares face down on the table. Take turns to each turn over 2 pieces. Do they match? If so, you get to keep them. If not, turn over again and play moves to next person. When you find a dot square that matches a number square – place in the wooden frame.
The wooden dowels are different height, from number 1 being the shortest to number 10 being the tallest. Place the wooden dowels in the correct holes from shortest to tallest.
Divide the wooden discs equally among the players. Use dice (not included in the game) : can use colour dice, dot dice, number dice or combination. Throw the dice : if you throw red and 2 dots . . . Do you have any red discs? Can you place them onto the dowels so they’re in the same order as shown on the wooden dot squares?
