Get started:


How to play:

  • Start a timer (using a stopwatch app is handy!) if you want to keep score
  • Players take their turns, quickly crossing the line, tapping their number and returning to the group
  • If someone crosses the starting line while another player is already in the play area, you must restart and let the clock continue to run
  • Once you have tapped all the numbers correctly, stop the clock
  • Have the team talk about what went well and how they could beat their time
  • Repeat with new team methods until you’re all Key Punched out!
