What I personally love about this game, is that everyone knows about money, they love looking at it and counting it!

What if only one or a couple people want to roll a second time? Do you have other envelopes for them to steal if the others do not want to give theirs up? Thank you!

Hi Tracey, I imagine that even if they don't want to roll again they would have to swap envelopes with someone who rolls and chooses to 'steal' their envelope.

Hi Ashley
As with most activities it depends on your residents
What ever they can tolerate and the time frame are the way to determine this

How many rounds do you play?

I've done this game a couple of times now at the Dementia Unit I work at, and it's worked wonderfully. They really love it! As far as the numbers, I have the 12 envelopes but have numbers 1-6, two times each on the envelopes and that has worked. Thanks for this activity!

Thankyou, sounds like a fun new game to play and as you say brings on great discussions.

By using the glue gun to either write the number, or make a dice shape on envelopes with the numbers, or making braille marks on envelopes by the use of a glue gun enters that extra sensory dynamic.

Unfortunately, I only ever have played with up to 12 individuals (Usually, several groups of 4-5 participants) thus the 1-12 numbers on the dice.
I guess until I can think of a solution for being able to play with a group of more than 12 individuals, would be to make double or triples of the numbers 1-12.
Or, making several groups of 12, and making that many more envelopes with money.

Why don't you use a spinner or use an app like Random Hat Generator to choose the names/ numbers?

Thanks for submitting this activity Chant!
Just to clarify - how would envelopes that have a number on them greater than 6 be distributed? The rules say that whatever number you roll is the number envelope you pickup (or steal) - so I was just wondering what happens with numbers not on the dice.

Thanks Chant!

I guess for that you would use 2 dice.
