●Each player needs paper, pencil and two dice.

Take Off is played by pretending you are an airplane trying to reach 100 feet in altitude.  Taking turns, each player rolls his dice and adds them together and writes this number down.  His plane is now at that altitude.  The next player does the same.  The first person to get closest to 100 or reach it exactly, wins.

Landings is the same game, except now your airplane is at 100 feet and is coming in for a landing at ground zero.  Each player rolls his dice and subtracts that from 100.  Play continues until someone comes closest to zero or reaches it exactly.  Any player that goes past 0 will have crashed.
