56 – smallest positive integer game

The kids loved this game so much I thought I saw tears streaming down their faces when we had to end it. Sheesh.

MathCounts has a PDF on it. Patrick Vennebush — has a nice blog too — shares his analysis of the game here.
We played 10 rounds, but I didn’t tell them about the rule until the second round. This is the result from a class of 20 kids.
