Rugby World Cup 2019 Maths Game

This resource contains a rugby themed maths dice and a coin toss game. Both games are played with a partner. It is ideal for use during the World Rugby Cup tournament taking place in Tokyo from 20th September to 2nd November 2019.

Dice Game

The aim of the game is to score as many points as possible. Players take turns to throw the dice. Every time a 5 is rolled, the player scores a try (5 points). If a player rolls a 5 he/she has another turn straightaway. If a 2 is rolled the player gets a conversion worth 2 points. If a 3 is rolled the player gets a penalty - 3 points. If a player scores four tries in the game he/she gets a bonus point.

Coin Game

This is a game for two players. Players choose which team from the Rugby World Cup they are playing for. Players toss a coin to see who goes first. The player who is first tosses the coin. If it lands on heads a try is scored worth 5 points. If it lands on tails no try is scored. Do this 6 times. If the points are equal after 6 attempts, players continue taking turns, tossing the coin until the first try is scored.
