Witzzle Pro The Rules of the Game How To Play Witzzle Pro Roll the dice to determine the target number in play. The sum of the two numbers rolled will determine the target number. • Choose a 3-digit combination from any horizontal, vertical, or diagonal line on the array. • Use each number in the line ONCE AND ONLY ONCE. • Use any combination of the four basic operations. • Create an equation using the 3-digit combination. • Follow order-of-operations rules. First solve the problem inside the parentheses; then multiply or divide from left to right; and then add or subtract from left to right. • Example: Using row 3 of game card If target is 22, then 4+9 x 2 = 22 -Multiply first! If target is 26, then 2 x (9 + 4) = 26 -Parentheses first! If the target number is 24, there are several correct solutions: • 24 = 6 • ( 5 – 1) • 8 x ( 9 – 6 ) = 24 • ( 7 + 5 ) * 2 = 24 A dot (•) or an (X) may be used for multiplication. A division line (/) or sign (÷) may be used. Correct Solutions: • Are legible. • Are equations. (have an = sign) • Include the target number. • Use parentheses. ( ) • Must be formed from 3 digits in a straight line. How points are awarded • The first player to write the correct solution and to hold it up wins a point. • The player will quickly share the solution with the other players. If the solution is correct, the player earns a point. • Then set up the next play – new card and new target number. End of the Round • When the bell rings, the round is over and play STOPS. • The two students with the most points during that round advance to the next table. • Players must wait until the bell rings to begin a new round. *Reminder* NO marks may be made on the paper before the card is turned!
