I have been wanting to make a game board for a while, and finally got one finished. I made a fairly simple board game printable without specific playing instructions, in order for you to make up your own rules for playing. There’s spaces on the game board for additional rules, but basically, you use it how you want to.
Some ideas –
1. You can play with one die and go as many spaces as the numbers on the die.
2. You can play with two dice and add, subtract or multiply the numbers. You advance one space for every right answer.
3. You can use it with spelling words – you advance one space for every right word spelled.
4. You can make a set of cards to go with the game, with a mixture of math questions – some addition, some subtraction, some fractions, story problems etc. (I will eventually make a set of 20 cards to go with this game, hopefully sooner than later).

Can you think of other games to play with this board?
Oh, yeah, expect to see this game format again – I can think of some other themes already (like “help the pirate get to the treasure”).
