Simple, fast, fun, and purposeful, Tenzi is a perfect addition to your child’s curriculum.
In the original Tenzi game, players roll ten dice and reroll the ones that don’t match until all ten display identical numbers.
Too easy? Opt for one of the many variations like Splitzi, where instead of trying to get all ten dice of one number you must have five dice of one number and five dice of another number. In Target Tenzi, you have a numeric goal, for instance 56, and you race to be the first to attain it. Or assign each player a number that he must roll for. Or… well, the options are endless and so is the fun.
Tenzi requires fast hands, the ability to make accurate calculations, and the gift of laughter.
If you are looking to expand the ways you can play this game, you can pick up the TENZI Card Deck, which will give you 77 new ideas! You can find it here.
Color assortments vary.

review by Homeschool Fanatic
”It all started with two colleagues, a bag of dice and the simple goal, “Let’s come up with a dice game.” After a very short time, the fast-paced dice game, Tenzi was born. Tenzi is quick, easy to learn, and suitable for ages 7 to 97 – although I might would stretch that even more!”Read the Review
review by LaFamilia Foundation
”Honestly, this game looks so simple, yet it is entertaining and different from any other game. Because it truly is a box of Dice. You are probably asking yourself what you can do with a box of Dice? This is what Tenzi is about, and if you get the extra cards, it brings more of different ways you can play this game. We have so much fun as a family playing.”Read the Review
review by Making Everyday Magic
”These brightly colored dice are a wonderful addition to our homeschool curriculum. We have enjoyed playing with them as a family, using the 77 additional ways to play, and creating our own games. Simply stacking the dice and spotting the number are great ways to engage my little one while big sister can use the dice for patterns, addition, subtraction, and multiplication.”Watch the video
review by Roads to Everywhere
”We set the deck face down in the middle of the table and before each hand, we would flip the top card over to find out what the goal was for that hand. Our favorites are the patterns, where you roll to get the numbers shown and then arrange your dice in that specific pattern. The way we played it was whoever won the hand got to keep the card and after we had played through the deck whoever had the most cards was the winner.”Read the Review
My girls enjoy the speed and competition of TENZI. They also like the bright, colorful dice. We are trying to teach our three year old to play with us, but he hasn't quite figured it out, yet. It is a fast, fun game that even big people enjoy. If you get bored, make up your own game, or check out the card deck.
We put 21 Tenzi dice in a hat (10 of two colors and one of another color to be the kaboom.) After reading a few words, phrases, or sentences on the fluency sheet my child would pick a dice, then I'd read a few words from an old fluency chart and pick my dice. If one of us picked the Kaboom dice you have to put all your dice back in the hat (or half your dice when we are over halfway through the game). Whoever has the most at the end wins. My son loved this game and it helped with AAR so much! He chose this game almost every time he had a fluency sheet to do. I think the other best thing for Tenzi was playing things like "Sevenzi" where you have to roll five sets of 2 numbers that add up to seven to win. It helps with math fact recall.
This game is surprisingly fun! There's so many ways to play so it never gets boring.
This is the dice portion. It’s just a bunch of different colored dice. The game itself doesn’t do anything for me. It’s just about rolling the right combination of dice the fastest. I’d grab some thing else - may I recommend grid block?
This is a really fun game for the whole family. I love how their all different ways to play so it never gets boring.
