Each turn, all players secretly write a number from 000 to 999 on their tile, then simultaneously reveal them. Writing a bigger number gives you more points, but it’s also a risky bet… since if you share a digit with any of the smaller numbers, you don’t gain any points! As turns progress, there are fewer possibilities, making each decision more strategic. After 2 rounds, the player with the highest score wins the game.
A CLEVER MIX OF BLUFFING AND RISK TAKING: Writing a large number earns more points, but it’s also a risky gamble because if you have a number in common with one of the smaller numbers revealed by one of your classmates, you don’t score any points!
STRATEGY GAME: As the round progresses, you can no longer use the numbers you have used before, so the possibilities gradually narrow. It’s up to you to make the right choices, to bet high or to make yourself very small to keep your chances on the last rounds. After 2 rounds, get the highest score to win the game.
