How to Play "Star Pathway"

  1. Setup: Each player selects their own colored counters (e.g., player 1 uses blue counters, player 2 uses red counters). The game board features pathways adorned with numbered circles and sparkling stars.

  2. Gameplay: Players take turns rolling a dice and moving along the pathway according to the number rolled. Upon landing on a circle, the player must answer the addition fact found in that row.

  3. Adding Brilliance: If the player answers the addition fact correctly, they place one of their counters on top of the circle to mark it as theirs.

  4. Claiming Stars: As players progress along the pathway, they strive to cover all the circles in a pathway. The player who covers the last circle in a pathway claims the star at the end and covers it with their counter.

  5. Victory: The first player to collect three stars by covering them with their counters is declared the winner, celebrating their triumph in the galaxy of mathematics!
