Transform a pizza box into this small-group game! Draw a 7 x 7 grid on a piece of paper sized to fit the bottom of a pizza box. Color the grid; then program its 49 squares as follows: five each of the numbers 1, 6, 7, 8, and 9, and six each of the numbers 2, 3, 4, and 5. Laminate the grid for durability; then glue it to the bottom of the pizza box. Next, label 60 plastic discs or paper circles from 1 to 60 and put them in a small plastic bag. To play, one player draws a number from the bag and places it faceup. All players search the game tray for three adjacent numbers that equal the number drawn when they multiply the first two numbers together and then add the third to or subtract it from the product. The first player to record on paper and then point out a correct combination on the tray keeps the disc. The player with the most discs after an allotted time wins.
