Pica-Paca-Poe, The Alpaca Tic-Tac-Toe
Did you know, Tic-Tac-Toe dates back over 3000 years?!
Play this traditional game with an alpaca twist! Fun for kids as they learn spatial skills, cooperation and motor skills. For adults, try a challenging alternative method of play.
How to Play
Pica-Paca-Poe is similar to traditional Tic-Tac-Toe, but with some alpaditions (alpaca additions).
To decide who goes first, each player will Pronk (drop or toss) an alpaca piece from the distance of the game bag (about 8 inches away) toward center square. The player with the closest alpaca to the middle of the center square gets to go first.
To win the game, taking turns with the other player, get three of your pieces in a row (vertical, horizontal or diagonal) first.*
A challenging way to play Pica-Paca-Poe is to use just three pieces per player. Once all pieces are out you can move them to ADJACENT (touching) empty squares to try to win.
*To officially win, after placing your winning piece you must declare "Pica-Paca-Poe!" before your opponent says "Pica-Paca-Poe-NO!".
