In this probability game for two students, each player predicts the sum of the two numbers that will be rolled for each of 12 rolls of a pair of dice and then records his/her predictions on the game sheet. Students play the game and the player whose predictions were the most accurate wins. After the game has been played through once, students are given an opportunity to revise their strategy and play again. Creating a table of theoretical probabilities after the first round of play will help student develop their strategies.
