Guide Review - Make A Pie! - A Simple Game of Fractions
The object of the game is to be the player with the most complete pies when the last slice is taken. Pieces include 5 pies cut into halves, thirds, quarters, eights and twelfths. Each player spins the spinner and places the piece indicated on the spinner onto a pie tin on the playing borad. Players continue to spin and work on building their pies. Strategy is used when a player spins "Take a Piece" and takes a piece from other player's pies. As the "pie cupboard" becomes depleted, players may take any equivalent of the fraction spun if it is no longer available. This can be a benefit since smaller slices might finish more than one pie. To make things easier, a chart of equivalents is printed in the box top, but they soon know them by heart.
For 2 players, ages 6 and up; however, tips for playing with younger players are included.
