Here's another game from Wild Maths. On a square grid, take turns marking the corners of the grid. The first person to claim all four corners of a square wins. Can you find a winning strategy?

You can try this with a friend using squared paper, or you can play against your friend or the computer with the interactivity on Wild Maths.

*Wild Maths encourages students to explore maths beyond the classroom and is designed to nurture mathematical creativity. The site is aimed at 7 to 16 year-olds, but open to all. It provides games, investigations, stories and spaces to explore, where discoveries are to be made. Some have starting points, some a big question and others offer you a free space to investigate. *
