●Three dice, pencils and paper.

Two playersstart the game with 200 points each at the top of their paper. They take turns rolling the three dice. One player will be the ODD player, and one will be the EVEN player. Each time the sum of the dice rolled is EVEN, the EVEN player subtracts that number from his running total. If the sum is ODD, ODD player gets to subtract it. First player to get rid of all his points, wins.

Variation: You can do this the same way with addition. Just start at 0 and go up to 200.
