1-to-7 Calculator Game
York Adams Council
This is a "join in anytime" game the boys can play as they arrive. Here's how it's played.
The boys sit around in a circle. One person is given a calculator to start. He punches in a number (any odd number from 1 through 7) and presses the + key. He passes it on to the next player, who does the same thing. This continues until the value reaches 50. If a player presses a number that casues the total to exceed 50, he has to pass it on to the next person to start. If he selects a number that gets the total to exactly 50, he gets to start the next round.

A quick test of intelligence. Don't cheat! Because if you did, the test would be no fun. I promise, there are no tricks to the test. Read this sentence:
FINISHED FILES ARE THE RE-
SULT OF YEARS OF SCIENTIF-
IC STUDY COMBINED WITH
THE EXPERIENCE OF YEARS.
Now count aloud the F's in that sentence. Count them ONLY ONCE: do not go back and count them again. See below
There are six F's in the sentence. One of average intelligence finds three of them. If you spotted four, you're above average. If you got five, you can turn your nose at most anybody. If you caught six, you are a genius.
There is no catch. Many people forget the "OF"'s. The human brain tends to see them as V's and not F's. Pretty weird, huh? It fools almost everybody.
