We have been playing an Add Ten game that I found on another GREAT blog. It's not our usual board game but my students love it! So I piggybacked off it and made one for "Valentine's Season". I created it to practice Doubles +1.
All you need is the gameboard, a die, and two color counters. I used the two-sided foam counters that are in my math manipulative kits. One side is yellow and the other is red. We play in partners so one person is yellow and the other is red.
Here's how to play....One student rolls the die, doubles the number and adds 1. Then uses a counter to cover one of those spaces on the game board. If someone's answer is covered, that person loses the turn. Play continues until all spaces are covered. Whoever has the most counters on the game board is the winner. However, everyone wins because they are practicing a skill and don't even know it!
