HOW TO PLAY - 4 WAY COUNTDOWN- GAME
Object Of The Game:
The first player to flip up all 10 keys on his/her side of the
CountDown game unit wins the game.
1. Players press down all 10 keys on their sides of the CountDown
2. Players each roll one die to determine who goes first. Player
with the highest roll will begin the game. Play then moves to the
3. The first player rolls the dice in the center of
the game unit (in the middle of the four sets of keys).
The two numbers rolled must be converted into one number by using
any of the following methods.
If a player rolls a 2 and a 4 on the dice, he has the following options:
*Add: 2 + 4 = 6. Player may
flip up the 6 key.
*Subtract: 4 - 2 = 2. Player may flip up the 2 key.
*Multiply: 4 x 2 = 8. Player may flip up the 8 key.
*Divide: 4 ¸
2 = 2. Player may flip up the 2 key.
If a player rolls a 5 and 3 there are only two options:
5 + 3 = 8. Player may flip up the 8 key
*Subtract: 5 - 3 = 2. Player may flip up the 2 key.
*Roll Double 6: If a player rolls a double six he must flip all of
his keys back down and start over.
*Roll an 11: If a player rolls a 6 and a 5 he may count it as a 1
(using the subtraction option) OR as an 11. If counted as an
11, the player may make any opponent of his choice flip all of his keys
back down and start over.
Play is the same as the adult version except a player has only two
options after a roll.
* ADDITION- A player may add up the two numbers on the dice
to determine the number key to be flipped.
* SCORE KEYS- A player may use both numbers on the dice and
flip two keys.
If the player rolls a 5 on one die and a 3 on the other, he may turn
over the 5 key and the 3 key
he may add the 5 + 3 and flip only the 8 key.
Players must use both numbers rolled on a turn except when a double
is rolled. For example, if a 3 and a 5 are rolled and the player
has already flipped over the 8 and 3 key in previous turns, the player
cannot flip the 5 key on that turn because both dice must be used.
If two 5's are rolled and the 10 key has already been flipped, the
player can still flip over the 5 key.
ROLLING DOUBLE 6 or ROLLING AN 11 has the same outcome as in the adult
