The Four-Corner Pattern

As well as those adorable animal patterns, commonly found designs include symmetrical patterns such as the four-corner pattern, which as the name suggests, requires the winning player to mark off each corner of their board before they shout ‘house’. This is one of the simplest patterns available, which would make you think that the game would go very quickly, but because so few numbers are required to win the game it may take some time for the right numbers to be called out, leaving many players in the situation of needing just one number to win. This leads to an exciting game filled with tension.
