# MATH BASH

Race around the board, answer questions correctly, get as many points as you can, and get to your home spot before the others!

## Materials

• 1 game board
• 4 pieces (M, A, T, H)
• 2 dice
• 48 question cards
• scrap paper & pencil for work (optional)

## Objective

To be one of the first two players to get to your home spot and be the one with the most points!

## Gameplay

To start, each player picks a piece. The pieces will have a letter on them: M, A, T, or H. Each player will start on the corner with the corresponding letter on it (their corner). All of the players roll the dice to see who goes first, and then with the order, the players roll and move the amount of spaces shown on the dice clockwise.

## Points

To get points, you must land on either a corner spot, a colored spot, or a spot that tells you to gain points. To lose points, you must either get a question wrong, or land on a space that tells you to lose points. When you land on a colored spot, there will be a question worth a certain amount of points. If you get the question right, then you gain the number of points the card is worth, and if you miss it, you lose the amount of points the card is worth. For an addition problem, each problem is worth 1 point. For a subtraction problem, each problem is worth 2 points. For a multiplication problem, each problem is worth 3 points. For a division problem, each question is worth 4 points. YES YOU CAN GO INTO NEGATIVE POINTS!!!

## Questions

On some spots, there are color and a number. When you land on one of these spots, you will pick the card with the same color and number out of the Q deck. There will be a question on the back, and you have to answer it in under 1 minute. After you answer the question, you will pick the same card, but from the A deck. If you get it right, you get the amount of points the card is worth. If you get the question wrong, then you lose the amount of points the card is worth.

## Corner Spots

On each corner spot there is a letter. If the letter is the same letter written on your game piece, then it is your corner. When you land on a corner spot there will be a question. Pick the corresponding card from the Q deck. After you answer the question on the back of the card, you pick the same card from the A deck. Here is the point system for the corner spots:

Right- Gain 5 points

Wrong- lose 5 points
