How to Play:
Step 1:Determine which player goes first. The player whose birthday is closest to January 1st goes first.
Step 2: Choose a crayon. Each player needs a different color.
Step 3:Take turns drawing one line to connect the dots. You can draw only ONE line each turn.
Step 4:The player who completes the square gets to color the square center and claim that square.
Step 5:To earn a point you need to color in THREE squares that are next to each other AND are a complete multiplication fact. For example, you will need squares 5, 6, and 30 that are next to each other for the multiplication fact 5x6=30. Then circle the three squares with a black crayon.
Step 6:Record your points on the scoreboard. The player who has the most points when the board is filled is the winner.
