One of our favorite family games is Yamslam. When we are playing we always say “wow that was lucky”. This year in the spirit of St. Patrick's Day I was inspired to create a themed version called Lucky Slam.
- Paint small wood cubes from a craft store with white paint.
- Put number stickers, LUCKY letter stickers on the dice. (you could write on the dice with sharpie markers)
- Cover with mod podge to seal.
- Cut out shamrocks from card stock and make 4 shamrocks for each point value. (To save time you could use poker chips from another game) Print directions, scoring sheet, play and have fun.
Lucky Slam Game is a strategy game which teaches probability and math addition skills. See how players decide what risks to take to get the best combination and shamrock value. It is fun for the whole family.
