Number Tic-Tac-Toe!

The adventures in homeschooling continue, and I am learning more each day. Yesterday we found an awesome new game in Number Patterns (Let's Investigate). It take tic-tac-toe and replaces Xs and Os with numbers. One person takes odd, the other takes evens. You place the numbers with the goal of getting 3 numbers in a row that add up to 15. It beats the heck out of Xs and Os!!

It is such a relief, since I find tic-tac-toe to be a really hard game to play with kids. Unless I play blindfolded, I either win , draw or cheat so the child can win. (Don't get me started on the ethics of cheating so the child can win... it is one I really struggle with all the freakin' time.)
