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 Happy Homeschool Nest
”After spending my entire childhood in public school in England, memories of math class and team building activities seem filled with worksheets, boredom and frustration. Tenzi is not only a fun and fast paced family game, but it’s a wonderful way to have fun, build rapport and simultaneously reinforce number recognition in kids.”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
Super fun way to get in math drills. We play this as a family quite frequently and like to give as birthday gift to my daughters friends.
My 7-year-old enjoys this game, but I definitely recommend purchasing the card pack. The basic game can get boring after a while. It's a little difficult for my 5-year-old, so we just let him play with fewer dice, and that way the whole family can play together. We have also found other uses for the dice, such as practicing multiplication and adding by rolling two to three dice and adding or multiplying the numbers.
This is such a fun family game! And the kids don't even realize how much they are learning!
My daughter loves playing this game with neighborhood kids, friends, and family. A great game for any age.
