3 tens in a row

Uses a 3 x 3 grid as a game board (like in noughts-and-crosses). Players take turns to roll the dice and write the number in one of their boxes. The goal is to be able to write two numbers in each box that combine to make 10. Players take turns until someone is the first to make three tens in a row.
