How to play: Print a copy of the board and two copies of the clue cards, in different colours. Cut out the cards and give each player a set (face down). Taking turns, each player takes one card and places it on the correct square on the board – miss a turn if the square is already taken. The winner is the first to get 3 of their cards in a row, column or diagonal. Playing board and cards:   violin
