Easy to learn and fast to play, Ultimo is at its core pure mathematical stratagem ingeniously disguised as a simple game. There are 15 dice in three groups. One die is gold. The object of the game is to get the gold die. Take 1, 2, or 3 dice each turn. The catch? You can’t take the gold die until the last play of the game!
While the concept is straightforward, winning the game requires abstract strategy and the ability to do some forward thinking, perfect for your students. Suitable for two players and a wide age range, Ultimo is the ultimate strategy and probability game for the entire family.

Fun probability game.
I'm not sure if we are playing this wrong but it isn't challenging at all for my six year old. On the plus side, it makes him feel really great to be able to plan his win and score the gold dice.
I didn't read the full description before picking this for our kit so I was expecting a dice (rolling) game.
This game really gets you to think and strategize. I honestly have yet to beat my daughter when we play. It’s so fun and would make a great game that’s easy to travel with. It will be something we keep for years!
We got this game as part of our fourth grade kit. It is super easy and fast past game to learn. Even my younger son picked it up pretty quickly. Great game for the whole family.
