How To Play 2-6 Players

Ages 9-99

Objective: To be the first player to get 5 chips in a row horizontally, vertically or diagonally.

How to Play: Each player selects 1 color of chips and may use only 1 chip per turn. Players take turns rolling the dice and must use all 3 dice.  With any sequence or combination, players add, subtract, multiply and divide the 3 numbers to reach a number that will help them get 5 chips in a row while blocking their opponents from doing the same.

See all the combinations for a roll of 4, 4, and 7:

Rival 5 Board Game

  • 4 + 4 + 7 = 15
  • 7 – 4 = 3 x 4 = 12
  • 4 ÷ 4 = 1 + 7 = 8
  • 4 – 4 = 0 x 7 = 0
  • 4 x 7 = 28 – 4 = 24
  • 4 + 7 = 11 – 4 = 7
  • 4 + 4 = 8 x 7 = 56
  • 4 x 4 = 16 – 7 = 9
  • 7 – 4 = 3 + 4 = 7
  • 4 – 4 = 0 + 7 = 7
  • 4 ÷ 4 = 1 x 7 = 7
  • 4 + 4 = 8 – 7 = 1
  • 4 x 7 = 28 + 4 = 32

If a player rolls 3 dice of the same number (triplets), he plays that roll and gets an additional turn. If he rolls triplets again (on the same turn) he removes from the board 1 chip of each opponent, and the next person takes his turn. The first player to get 5 chips in a row horizontally, vertically, or diagonally wins.

Why do math haters love it?

Rival 5 is so much fun, that children and adults alike will forget that they are learning. I have been an educator for almost 30 years, and I know a great learning tool when I see one!  It’s a great supplement to textbooks, and great for students who struggle with learning math.  In addition, Rival 5 is a great game to play at home with family and friends.  Players will spend hours competing while learning and reinforcing mathematic skills.
