Stop the Clock

Age 5 to 7 Challenge Level:

Play the game several times. What do you notice?
What happens if your opponent gets to 10.30? Why?
How can you make sure you get exactly on $12$ o'clock? What time would you leave on the clock so that you can get to 12.00 on your next go, after your opponent has been?
So, what time would you want the clock to say on the go before that?
