# Operations

1+ players

The aim is to get the highest number possible after using each of your tokens.

There is 1 die

Each player has 4 tokens with different symbols on:

`+`

`−`

`×`

`÷`

Each player rolls the die and the number they get is their starting number.

Lowest score starts. If there's a draw, youngest of those starts.

## Each round:

- Roll the die
- Choose one of your operations.
- Perform your operation with the new number and your existing number. Try to get the highest score
- Discard your operation token. You only get to use each operation once.

Note: When the calculation is a division with a remainder, you can either discard the remainder or continue with decimals, depending on who is playing.

## Example game:

2 players.

A rolls 2, B rolls 3. A has the lowest starting number so they start

- Round 1
- A rolls a 4. They decide to use their
`+`

operation. They now have 6. - B rolls a 1. They use their
`÷`

. They still have 3.

- A rolls a 4. They decide to use their
- Round 2
- A rolls 6. They use their
`×`

. They have 36. - B rolls 5. They use their
`×`

. B now has 15

- A rolls 6. They use their
- Round 3
- A rolls another 6. They've already used their
`×`

so they have to either subtract 6 or divide by 6. They use`−`

. They have 30 - B rolls 2. They
`+`

it. B has 17

- A rolls another 6. They've already used their
- Round 4
- A rolls another 6! Now they only have their
`÷`

left. They have to divide 30 by 6. Now they have 5. - B rolls 3. They have their
`−`

left. B has 14.

- A rolls another 6! Now they only have their

B wins.

## Variations

- For advanced maths, add in the power and root symbols
`^`

`√`

- Try to get the lowest score instead of the highest.
- Try to get the lowest score without going below zero.
