This is a game for two players.

One player draws a daisy with five petals, a little like this (it does not have to be very neat!):

Players take it in turns to shade one petal or two petals next to each other.

The winner is the one to shade the last petal or petals.

Have a go at playing the game several times against a friend. (You could print off this sheet of daisies to shade in or just draw your own.)

Have you found some good ways of winning the game?

Does it matter whether you go first or second? Why or why not?
