Keep of my path is a competitive game with two teams. Starting from opposite ends of the board, the two teams build paths that hinder each other. The team that prevents the other from extending their path wins.

Required material: chequered board, tiles with footprint pictures


Q1. Are there any starting points that favour one of the two teams?

Q2. Could there be a draw?

Q3. Does the player that goes first have an advantage?

Q4. Is there an watertight game strategy that the player who moves first can adopt to make sure he never loses?
