In order to collect money, the spinner is used to determine which coins can or cannot be taken from the bank. If the spinner lands on “no nickels” then you collect your change with any coins except for nickels. There’s an additional incentive to use critical thinking and coin combining skills.

Each player is allotted one dinosaur for each of the four tracks (the tracks are labeled 1s, 10s, 100s, and 1000s). To play, a player rolls four dice to create a 4-digit number and then moves his or her prehistoric posse to the appropriate 1s, 10s, 100s, and 1000s places. Problem-solving strategies are honed as players scurry to get all four miniature mammoths or tiny triceratops into the dino haven, ahead of the other players’ thundering herds. But look out!
