I hope you all are enjoying your Thanksgiving break, and I trust you are not camped out outside of Walmart waiting for Black Friday!
Tonight I have a little computation freebie called Target 20. It’s another computation dice game that involves strategy. Here’s how this one goes. Each player needs a score sheet. On a player’s turn he/she rolls 4 dice, makes two 2-digit numbers, and adds or subtracts them. The goal is to get as close to 20 as possible. The LOW score wins this game, so you have to think carefully about how you make your 2-digit numbers. The number can be over or under 20, and your score is the difference. For example, a player would score 2 points for either 18 or 22.
So if you rolled the numbers shown above, what would you have done on your turn? I was able to get a difference of 2. Can anybody beat that?
