Tenzi: A Bright Idea

Hi, friends!  It's time for another Bright Ideas Blog Hop!  I always look forward to these events, and I hope you do, too!  There are so many great ideas!


Today's post is all about a fun game that I discovered last year.  It's a dice game called Tenzi.  It is seriously the most fun thing ever.  I stumbled across it at a toy store around Christmas time and it was half off.  It had one of those "Best Toy Award" stickers on it so I figured I'd give it a shot.  Holy Moly!  I did not realize what a hit it would be!  I introduced it during inside recess one day and the rest was history!  It became a staple in my weekly Math tubs,  during inside recess, and for early-finishers.  I ended up getting lots more sets because it is just that good of a game.  So how do you play?  Each player gets a set of 10 colored dice.  You say "Ready, Set, Go" or whatever you want to initiate the game.  Everyone rolls all 10 dice and looks for a number that they have the most of.  They then keep the ones they want to keep and re-roll to get more of the number they are going for.  The first person to get all 10 the same yells "TENZI!"  It's seriously so fun.  I play all the time with my kids!  To check out the game, click HERE.

I just discovered Tenzi this Christmas too! My children love it. I love that students of varying abilities can play together and no one has an advantage.

I love this game. We play it at home with my girls quite a lot. Now, I've got to buy an extra set and take it to school.

Thanks for sharing!

I absolutely love this game. My first graders have so much fun with it and don't even realize they are learning their dot patterns and number recognition skills. It makes a wonderful rainy day recess game too!
