To Play 2D Shape Roll and Cover
This is a two or more player game. Materials: One game board (they can share or you can play where everyone gets their own board) and one spinner with a paperclip and pencil for the spinner or a die. Each person needs several of one color cover up. The first player spins and tells what shape they landed on then covers that shape on the game board. Then next player does the same. If a player spins a shape that is already covered, they lose their turn. Play continues until time is up or until all of the shapes are covered. The person with the most shapes covered wins.

If a player spins a shape that he has already covered he can add a second linking cube and this means that he can’ be bumped from that space. It is locked.
