Sparkhouse Gets Dicey

2 Jul

Grumman always goes for the boxcars

If you start seeing groups of Sparkhouse kids shouting and rolling dice, do not be alarmed.  Tenzi is a simple game that kids(6+) and adults can enjoy.  Each player gets ten dice to roll (and occasionally stack) until they get the right combination to shout “Tenzi!”  There are several game variations you can play in teams or solitaire, and they are all surprisingly addictive.

You can think about how the game develops pattern recognition and strategic use of probability, or, you can just have fun with it.  Remember, Einstein once said,”God doesn’t play dice with the world, but if He did, it would be a heckuva party game!” *

*Ok, Einstein didn’t really say that.
