Recently discovered the game Pentago. This is a great visualization, spatial awareness, perspective and visual planning exercise. For those of you who work heavily in parquetry and geoboards, as we do, this may be another tool to consider. Good stuff!
The game is played on a 6×6 board divided into four 3×3 sub-boards (or quadrants). Taking turns, the two players place a marble of their color (either black or white) onto an unoccupied space on the board, and then rotate one of the sub-boards by 90 degrees either clockwise or anti-clockwise. A player wins by getting five of their marbles in a vertical, horizontal or diagonal row (either before or after the sub-board rotation in their move). If all 36 spaces on the board are occupied without a row of five being formed then the game is a draw.
Happy Friday! 🙂
