PAR IMPAR: A popular game in ancient Rome. One player scoops up a number of dry beans in their two hands and the other player has to guess whether the number of beans is odd or even. It is of course a gambling game so if the player guesses right he/she gets to keep the beans and converts them to money. But in the Rome Game version he or she only gets the beans if they can count them all up in Latin. An excellent way of learning numbers in a foreign language.
