Toss the coin – nasty version

Toss the coin

Here’s a variation on the Toss the coin game.

You need:

A board for each player,

Two coins to toss,

A pile of coins to choose from (at least 32 for 2 players)

To play:

Take turns to toss your two coins:

  • One head and one tail – pick up two coins from the pile.
  • Two tails – take a coin from the other player’s grid.
  • Two heads – give one of the coins from your grid to the other player.


Put the coins on your grid, one on each square.

The game ends when one grid is full.

The winner is the player with the most money.

Which coins will you take from the other player? Which ones will you give away? Why?
