Online compatible : Yes – Without additional apparatus, this game requires a top down view. If played several times in a day, no doubt teachers arms will ache from holding a camera above the board. However, a sound investment in 2 sets of 10 magnets of 2 different colors, and a small magnetic whiteboard, often sold at dollar stores, will mean a teacher can instead attach the game board to the magnetic whiteboard and use the color magnets as playing pieces. This method would mean the game could easily be played in front of a static built in camera.
Age group : Best played by students aged between 6 and 10
Preparation time : Time taken to print a single copy of Appendix N
Number of players : Works equally well in groups as in private classes
Objective : The first team to move all of their pieces to their opponent’s starting squares wins.
Place counters from team 1 to cover the black dots of the board from 1-10. Place team 2’s counters to cover the black dots of 16 to 25. On each turn a team may move one counter diagonally forwards or backwards. Counters may not leap over counters, nor can they capture them. Once a team has moved all of it’s counters to the starting position of the opposing team, they have won.
