This is how to play the candy bar game: Buy a bunch of different candy bars - you need only one of each kind - the more the better. We usually buy about thirty or forty. You will also need lunch sacks for each person and at least one dice. Everyone sits in a big circle. Put the candy bars on the floor in the middle of the circle - spread them out so everyone can see them. Then everyone takes turns rolling one dice. If the person rolls a 1 or a 6 they get to choose a candy bar and put it in their bag so no one else can see it. Continue around the circle until all the candy bars are gone. Once the last candy bar is in a bag, continue around the circle three more times. This time if someone gets a 1 or a 6 they can take someone's candy bar, but first they have to name the person and the kind of candy bar they want. If the person has it, they have to give it up, if not, then the person who guessed just misses out. After three times around, everyone keeps the candy bars in their sacks.
