With Jane and Joanne
Each player is dealt seven cards. The remainder of the deck is placed face down in the center of the playing area.
The first player rolls the two dice and adds together the numbers represented on them. If the player has that number among the cards in hand, he places down the card or cards.
For example:If the player does not have that number, he says ZAP! Whenever a player calls out ZAP!, that signals all the other players to place down their card(s) that add up to the total on the dice. Any player can put down their card(s), but only the first player to finish placing down their card(s) is allowed to keep them down. Other players must return their card(s) to their hands.
If the dice total is 11, then the player might place down a Jack (=11) or he might place down a combination of cards that adds up to 11 (a 6 and a 5, for example, or a 3, 4 and 4).
The roller always draws one more card after his turn is over. Players who participate in the ZAP! round do not pick up another card.
For subsequent rounds, alternate the player who will roll the dice. Play continues until one player has no cards left in hand. That player is the winner.
Grades 3 and up: The roll of the dice is made into a 2-digit number. (For example, if a player rolls a 4 and a 6, those dice can be used to create the number 46.) Players must place down 4 and 6. If that player does not have the 4 and 6 combination in their hand, they say ZAP!
