This is the latest math game we’ve learned. It’s a fun one!
Here is the playing board:
You need a die and two different colours of counters to play. Once you decide who goes first, that person rolls the die and puts a counter on that number on the board. You take turns doing this until someone has four counters in a row. They can be horizontal, vertical or diagonal. Have fun!
A variation of this game would be that on a roll you can partition the number into two parts and put down two counters instead of one. For example, if I roll a 5, I can put a counter on a 4 and a 1. We haven’t tried this variation in class yet.
Another variation of the game is making a square box of 4 counters instead of a line of 4 counters in order to be the winner.
