Digit Dog and Calculating Cat have been practising their counting skills by playing the Incey Wincey Spider (Nursery and Reception) game (Year 1 and 2) from www.nrich.org

Digit Dog and Calculating Cat enjoyed the game so much that they made their own version of the game.

The game is for two players – one is Digit Dog, the other Calculating Cat.

You need: One dice, **one counter. **

Digit Dog wants to get to the bone, Calculating Cat wants to get to the fish.

Put the counter on **start**.

Take turns to throw the dice and move the counter. Both players move the same counter – Digit Dog moves the counter towards the bone, Calculating Cat moves it towards the fish.

The winner is the one who gets to the food first.

**Variations**

Use two dice – throw the two dice and choose which dice you want to use.

Use two dice – add the numbers on the dice and use the total for your move.

Use two dice – find the difference between the numbers on the two dice and use the difference for your move.
