Jack and Jill went up the hill
to fetch a pail of water.
Jack fell down and broke his crown
And Jill just laughed at Jack as he sat there unconscious.

Jack should've known that Jill was a baddie . . .

Is TheCube still working out the sums, or has this been forgotten about?

I remember a game we would play in school that was sort of similar to this.
Someone would give a three digit number and 6 other number (usually four number between 1-9 and two higher number like 50 and 100.)

Then everyone else would have to use the six number to reach the three digit one using +, -, / and x. The first one to get the number won, or the one with the closes total.

For example 485 with 3, 4, 6, 9, 30, 100.

4*100 = 400
3*30 = 90
400 + 90 = 490
490 - 6 = 484.


I don't know how you guys feel about changing this game to that?

Sounds rather like the numbers part on 'Countdown'. Don't know if there's a similar show where y'all are, but it's a daily words and numbers show on British TV.

Contestants pick 6 numbers - from 0 to all 4 from the "top row" which contains the numbers 25, 50, 75 100: and the rest (numbered 1 thru 10) from elsewhere.

Examples:
