Students will strategically connect dots, looking to be the last to add to the snake.
Using a grid, students will connect dots to create an increasingly long snake. The last one to add a line wins.
- On each move, the player's new line must connect two dots and form a vertical, horizontal, or 45º line.
- The lines cannot cross over the snake or reuse the dots within the snake.
- Each new line must start at one of the ends of the snake.
- Eventually, one player will not be able to add another line and they lose.
