Gold Mine
A game to practise adding and subtracting 9, 10 and 11 to numbers.

A sample 'Gold Mine' game board - remove holes to make it easier! (PDF file)

A sample spinner is on the right. Your spinner needs to have 9, 10, 11 (twice) on it. You could use a specially labelled die.

 

 

Gold Mine - Game Rules 

Place the gold (multi-link) on the squares numbered 1-10 and 91-100. Each player places their counter on a square in the starting area (41-42).
Players take it in turn to move their counter by spinning the spinner and adding or subtracting the number shown on the spinner to the number on the square that their counter is on. They move their counter to the square that has the answer to the sum they've just done.
They say there move out loud, e.g.
"36 add 9 is 45".
If a player makes a mistake in their calculation then their piece is returned to the starting area and they miss a turn.
If a player lands on a square containing gold then they may collect it. If a player lands on a circled number then they must return to a starting square of their choice. Players may not occupy the same square on the board.

The winner is the player that has the most gold when none remains on the board or when the game time is up.
