How to Play "Fraction Bump"

Game Preparation:

  1. Download and Print:

    • Click the button at the bottom of the page to download the "Fraction Bump" game board and instructions.

    • Print the game board and gather enough counters for each player (10 counters per player, each set in a different color).

  2. Setup:

    • Each player selects 10 counters of the same color. If one player chooses blue, the others must choose different colors.

    • Players place their playing pieces anywhere on the board to start the game.


Gameplay Instructions:

  1. Taking Turns:

    • Players take turns rolling a dice and moving their playing piece around the board based on the number rolled.

  2. Covering Fractions:

    • On each turn, players cover the equivalent fraction in the middle of the board with one of their colored counters.

  3. Bumping Opponents:

    • If a player lands on a fraction already covered by an opponent’s counter, they can “bump” that counter off and replace it with their own.

  4. Freezing Spots:

    • If a player lands on a fraction they have already covered, they place a second counter on top. This spot is now frozen and cannot be bumped off by other players.

  5. Winning the Game:

    • The first player to use all 10 of their counters wins the game.
