Come on Six • Any person in the group may start to roll the dice. The object is to roll a six. • Each person will get one opportunity each go around to roll the dice. If the person does not roll a six, then the dice is passed over to the next person. This continues until someone rolls a six. • Once that person rolls a six, they will grab the pen and starting writing and counting out loud 1 to 100. The actual numbers (not slash marks) must be written one at a time and must be legible. • The rolling of the dice continues until another group member rolls a six. They would then grab the pen from the other person and start writing their numbers beginning with the number 1. • You will skip the person who is writing their numbers in the dice rotation. If you were able to write down numbers on your paper and roll a six again, you will just continue where you left off of. • This is only a race between your own table; this is an individual challenge.
