## Game 24 (3-30 thru 4-5)

This is a fascinating game in which players pick a card with four numbers. Players have to rearrange the numbers using addition, subtraction, multiplication, or division to result in 24. There are usually multiple ways to solve each set of numbers.

On an attached file, I listed all of the number combinations in Levels 1, 2, and 3 in the actual game.

Also, I have attached a file on which players can write their numbers and rearrange them.

## Knight Lines (3-23 thru 3-29)

Knight Lines is a game based on a 1962 board game called Twixt (now out of print).

Knight Lines is played on a square grid, using two colored markers, as shown. Player 1 has to connect the red sides of the gameboard, while player 2 has to connect the blue sides. All moves are knight's moves from one corner (vertex) to another. The routes are not permitted to cross.
