Recreational series & Origami

Location: Princeton Public Library, teen room (3rd floor)

3.14pm-4pm:

In-a-Row Games

The most famous in-a-row game is tic-tac-toe, and you probably already know how it turns out. The good news is that there are many more in-a-row games, and they all have their connections to logic, geometry, and counting problems. Come learn, play, and strategize over a few, including tsoro yematatu—an in-a-row game from Zimbabwe. Join the fun!
