Target Game Rules

The goal is to create decimals or fractions to get as close to the target or benchmark decimal or fraction as possible.

Click PLAY to start the game. Use the SETUP button to change the number of players and sound.

Player One SPIN the 0-9 digit dice (20-sided dice with the digits 0-9 repeated twice) and presses STOP to determine the digit to be placed next. Click on the '?' where you would like to place this digit. This can not be undone so think carefully.

Player Two does the same steps.

As soon as all the open digit '?' have been filled, this round is over and the the player closest to the target or benchmark gets a point.
