Rock Slides And Arrows Supplies

How To Play Rock Slides And Arrows

  1. Set up the game by placing the game cards face down on the “Pickup Pile” box on the card placement sheet. Then, give each player a numbered Rock Slides and Arrows Game Token according to the order the player will take his or her turn. (The youngest player goes first.)
  2. Have each player place his or her marker on the “Start” square.
  3. Have the person immediately to the right of the youngest player pick a card from the pile and ask the question on the card to the youngest player. If he or she gets the question right, he or she rolls a dice and then moves his or her token the number of spaces on the dice. If the player gets the question wrong, his or her turn is over.
  4. The gameplay moves around the circle to the next player on the right, in the same manner.

Special Squares

  • If a player lands on a rock square, the player gets to roll again.
  • If a player lands on a square with the top of the slide, he or she moves his or her token to the bottom of the slide.
  • If a player lands on a square with the bottom of the arrow, he or she moves his or her token to the top of the arrow.

Additional Geology Game Idea

You can use the Rocks Slides and Arrows Cards for a game of trivia. Simply have a caller choose the card and read the question. You can ask the question to a specific player or to a specific team. Each correct answer earns a point. The player or team that has the most points once the stack of cards has been gone through wins the game.
