###### Traditional maths games: Board games - The game of the goose

Among the material we use into our maths lessons, we have some traditional games that we use, not only because our pupils enjoy playing, but also, because they are a way of learning and acquiring different knowledge.

• Throw the dice, count the dice and move your counter as many squares as the dice says.

• If your counter lands on a Goose, move your counter to the next Goose and throw the dice again. In Spanish is said: "De oca a oca y tiro porque me toca".

• If your counter lands on the bridge, move your counter to the other bridge of the board and throw the dice again. In Spanish is said: "De puente a puente y tiro porque me lleva la corriente".

• If you land on the Labyrinth, you miss a turn.

• If you land on the Prison, you will have to miss three turns while you are behind bars.

• If you land on Dead, you have to go back to square 1 and start all over again!

• To win you must reach square 63 exactly. If your dice roll is more than you need then you move in to square 63 and then bounce back out again.

​When you land on square 63 exactly you are the winner!
