The Africa Classroom Package:
Other Fun Stuff


Here's a fun African children's game for two players related to Tic-tac-toe.

The playing board looks like this. You can draw it on paper or on the ground.

Each player needs four distinguishable pieces, such four dried black beans and four dried kidney beans; or four pennies and four nickels.

Players take turns placing their beans on any empty circle, attempting to get three in a row horizontally, vertically or diagonally, just as in Tic-tac-toe. If neither player gets three in a row, players take turns sliding one piece along a line to an empty circle until one player gets three in a row. No jumping is allowed. If a player has no move, he/she must skip his/her turn.

Have fun playing!
