Object: To get four numbers in a row — vertically, horizontally, or diagonally.

Set-Up: The game board consists of 36 squares. The numbers on the squares consist of all possible
products that result when two single-digit numbers are multiplied. At the bottom of the board is a factor list containing
the single-digit numbers 1-9.

Play: On the first turn of the game, one player drags a marker to one of the numbers on the
factor list. On the second turn, the other player drags a second marker to one of the numbers on the factor list. The product
of the two marked numbers on the factor strip will be colored to match that player’s color (red or blue).

Next, the first player can move either of the markers on the factor strip to another number. The first player then gets
control of a square in the game board equal to the product of the two marked numbers on the factor strip will be colored
to match that player’s color (red or blue).

Players then alternate turns for the remainder of the game.

For example, let’s say that you drag one of the markers to 7 on the first turn of the game. If your opponent then drags
the other marker to 9, the number 63 (because 7 × 9 = 63) will be colored to match that player’s color. On your next
turn, if you move the marker from 9 to 2, the number 14 (because 2 × 7 = 14) will be changed to your color.

Winning the Game: The first player to get four in a row wins. If it becomes impossible for
either player to get four in a row, the game ends as a tie.
