Five Squares Game
Colored pencils or crayons work best for this game.
Player 1 takes the PLAYER 1 game sheet plus the answer key for PLAYER 2. Player 2 takes the PLAYER 2 game sheet plus the answer key for PLAYER 1. Each player checks the other player's answers.
DIRECTIONS: Choose a game board. Larger boards make it easier to get 5 squares in a row. After the cards are shuffled, each player draws a card. The person who draws the highest problem number goes first. To start the game, the top card from the deck should be turned over. Each player finds the problem number on their own game sheet and answers it. If the answer is correct, that player gets to color in one square on the board, trying to get 5 squares in a row, while blocking the other player from getting 5 in a row. If a player gets the answer wrong, that player does nothing on the board for that turn.
(Important: Both players work on solving their problems at the same time, but they take turns coloring in the squares on the board, with the player who drew the highest card before the game going first. This way there is less down time for each player).
The first player to get 5 squares in a row wins the game. There are also few “free” spaces on the board(s).
