Settlers Game

Settlers Game is one of the cool brain games for kids and fun elementary games.

The object is to get one's army to its shelter without crossing enemy lines.

This is definitely an activity that makes you think!


2 players
Ages: 7 and up
Need pencils and paper


Each player draws a sheet for the opposite player.


Use plain white unlined paper as this makes it easier to see the sheet.

In the middle, draw a square with one side being open. This is the way into the shelter.

Then draw 15 circles scattered around the page and number each one from 1 to 15.

The play then begins. The players pretend their army is being attacked and must get each soldier safely into the shelter.

square with one open side surrounded by circles with numbers 1 to 15 inside

They have to connect lines from their circles with numbers to the shelter.

Lines must be drawn in correct numerical order - 1, then 2, then 3, etc.

Players try and get each soldier into the shelter without their lines crossing on the paper.

If there's no other way, a line may cross another line but this occurs one penalty point.

And . . .

When all the soldiers are in the shelter, the winner is the player with the least amount of penalty points.

As the play goes on and you have to cross the other player's line, you'll want to keep in mind not to do this too often.

The penalty points can add up and the other player can end up winning by a point or two!


This can be played in the car, just be sure you have a book or magazine that you can play on.

This may be a bit confusing at first, but the more you play the more you will get on to it.

Then it won't seem too challenging!
