I originally saw this idea on “Survivor.” Yes, I’m a huge fan. Call it a guilty pleasure. I was reminded about this game on Family Go. You draw out a grid in chalk. I did 10×10. Then, they choose a starting point. Once the step off that square to the front, back, left or right, they need to cross out the square they were just standing on. They take turns and keep going until one of them runs into a dead end (X marks on every side) and has no place to move. Whoever is left with moves left wins. It’s a great problem solving game that they enjoyed. I think they’re still a bit young to have tons of strategy involved. People of all ages could play it, and you can have any number of people on the grid. Kenzie won, and as the grid started filling up you could see Abby’s wheels turning as the concept of strategy finally hit.
