Heads or Tails – Partner Game

20130629-185305.jpg

*Each pair will need a game board & 3 coins. Alternatively they could use 1 coin & 2 different coloured counters.

To start the game, each player places a coin on the star of the snake. The heads player places the coin heads side up. The tails player places the coin tails side up.

The heads player tosses a coin. If it is heads, they move the coin one space toward the head of the snake. If it is tails, they don’t move but the tails player moves their coin one space toward the tail.

Next, the tails player tosses a coin. If it is tails, they move their coin one space toward the tail of the snake. If it is heads, they don’t move but the heads player moves their coin one space toward the head of the snake.

Play continues back and forth until one of the players reaches either the head or the tail of the snake, winning the game.
