Put your spatial visualisation to the test in this two player game.

Can you make five-in-a-row before your opponent?

Great for all ages and for cross age competition.

How do you play Pentago?

It's a quick setup. You take the lid off the game board, pick your colour and you're ready to go.

Players take it in turns placing a piece and then rotating one quadrant of the game board by 90 degrees.

The first player to make 5 in a row is the winner. It such a simple game but the complexity added by the twist of the board is amazing.

When playing with my 6 year old he would often turn the board and produce 5 in a row. I couldn't see it coming.

What can you learn?

- spatial visualisation
- planning ahead and strategy

THINKercise twists

- Can you recognise danger patterns to look out for?
- try to win in a way where you can't lose (ie there is no way for your opponent to block you).

Its not a pushy salesy conversation but a chance for you to ask questions and see what you're getting in action. That's always helpful.
