4 IN A ROW game for ages 6 to 10
Four in a row is similar to the paper game "noughts and crosses" but we have changed it into a one person maths learning / revision game. The aim of the game is to win 4 cells in a row from a grid of 16 cells.
The game will reinforce the maths you have chosen to learn by getting you to match the question to the correct answer.
