Materials: Two game boards Two whiteboard markers Object of Game: To locate and destroy all of the enemys ships. Rules: Players draw the following ships in their Players Area grid: 1 Battleship 5 squares 2 Destroyers 2 squares each 1 Cruiser 3 squares 3 Gunboats 1 square each Grids are kept hidden from opponents throughout the game. Players take turns firing shots which are described by the coordinates of the square shot at. The opponent must say whether the shot was a miss or a hit, and if a hit, what type of ship was hit. Each player records the results of their shots on their Opponents Area grids. Hits on a players own ships are recorded by circling the squares hit on their Players Area. 10 10 9 9 8 8 7 7 6 6 5 5 4 4 3 3 2 2 1 1 1 2 3

2 9 6 3 5 4 Networks Number of Players: 2 Materials: Counters of two different colours (approx 20 of each) Object of Game: To complete a network between two opposite goal regions. Rules: Each player chooses a goal region colour and a counter colour. Players take turns to place a counter in an unoccupied square in an attempt to create a network between their two opposite goal regions. A network must contain at least six connected counters. Counters are connected to each other if they each lie in a common line (either a row, a column or a diagonal). An opposing counter placed in a line between two connected counters breaks the connection. A network must not: include more than one counter in the same goal region; pass through a counter without turning; or pass through a counter more than once. A player must not: place a counter in their opponents goal region; or place a counter in such a way that a cluster of three is formed. E.g. Nine Warriors Hunt Number of Players: 2 Materials: Nine counters of two different colours (18 total) Object of Game: To remove all of your opponents counters.

Rules: Players take turns to place nine counters each on the yellow circles. When all counters have been placed, players take turns to move a counter along any line to an adjacent (neighbouring) unoccupied circle in an attempt to form a row of three rows must be along one of the lines of the grid ( horizontally or vertically, not diagonally). When a player forms a row of three, they may then remove any one of their opponents counters from the board. A row of three can be broken and reformed just by moving a counter out of the row and then back again on the next move. Pent-Up Number of Players: 2 or 3 Materials: 12 Pentominoes Object of Game: To be the last player who can play a pentomino. Rules: Place the set of 12 pentominoes in a pile near the players.

Chains: Five or more of one colour in a chain where counters link horizontally, vertically or diagonally.

Rules: Each player uses counters of two colours. Players take turns, and at each turn players swap colours. At each turn, a player places a counter on any square on the game board not already occupied. (Note: The first player may not place a counter on the central square on their first turn.) Play ends when all 48 counters have been placed on the game board. Points are awarded to final arrangement of counters the higher scorer is the winner. Scoring: Each colour is scored separately. Record the score for rows first, then chains. As a row or chain is scored, remove the counters from the game board.
