The object of this game is to fill in squares on your MINGO board. First, pick a group of friends to play with and each select a game board. Then, take turns being the MINGO problem caller. Next, choose a game task card, which will tell you what type of MINGO game you are playing (ex. straight line, four corners, T, or X). The caller chooses a multiplication monster card. Players write the down the problem on the recording sheet and solve. If the answer is present on your game board, cover it with a Mingo chip. Game continues until one player has filled in the designated squares for that round. Finally, continue your practice with the provided worksheets independently or with a partner.
