Human noughts and crosses, a good time filler or game for the start of the evening


Nine chairs, sports bibs or neckerchiefs so you can tell the two teams apart


Number of players: More than nine
Duration: Each game lasts about five minutes, but you can keep playing!
Preparation time: Two minutes

Place nine chairs in a square, three chairs by three chairs.
Split your girls into two teams, the noughts and the crosses. Give out the bibs or neckerchiefs.
The girls from each team then take it in turns to sit on a chair.
The aim is to get a line of noughts or a line of crosses.
