"There are 'Fifteen Game' printable cards so that this game can be played by two people if they do not have computer access. The game is isomorphic to noughts and crosses (Tic Tac Toe) and the layout of the numbers on the printable sheet may give a clue to how noughts and crosses strategies can be used in this game."
