The people line up in two rows at opposite ends of the room. In the centre of the room are nine chairs arranges in a three by three grid, each chair no closer than one metre to the next chair. The people in the rows are numbered off from one to how ever many people are in each row. One row are the noughts and the other row are the crosses. The leader (teacher) calls out a number at random. The person in the noughts team and the person in the crosses team with that number rush to sit on a chair in the grid. The first person to touch the chair can claim that chair. The first team to get three of its members in a straight line wins!
