This week, I have a game for you to play, called Nim-7.
All you will need is 7 counters – or if you don’t have any counters, then any seven objects will do. You could use 7 pens, 7 spoons, 7 books…
The aim of the game is to be the person to take away the LAST object.
1. Find one other person to play with
2. Place the 7 objects in a pile
3. Youngest player goes first and decides to take away 1 or 2 objects
4. Take turns, removing 1 or 2 objects each time
5. The person who takes away the last object wins.
6. Swap who goes first, and keep playing until you work out a winning strategy
REMEMBER, THE WINNER IS THE PERSON WHO TAKES AWAY THE LAST OBJECT.
Think about these things:
1. Does it matter who has the first turn?
2. What happens when there are three counters left?
3. How can you win at this game?
4. What happens when you start the game with more counters?
If you can work out the strategy, do let me know!
Topic – History – Ancient Egyptians
There is so much to learn about the Ancient Egyptians – it’s hard to know where to start! At school, we’ve already started our topic all about this amazing period in history, but I’ve found some great websites and activities that we can use to discover even more about them.
When you’ve had a look at them, why don’t you pick a selection of new facts that you have learned and create a poster all about them?
