When Fiona was ten she was the Waikato Regional Game Twenty Four Champion. Such was her prowess and dedication to her sport that she would probably have gone all the way to a national title had their been the forum for her to progress beyond the contest at the Hamilton McDonald’s. At the time small Fiona recorded in her diary: “Can you believe it, diary? Is it really true?… I am the happiest person in the world.”
So, as you can imagine, Fiona was pleased to share this game at Mariposas. We’d brought it from home thinking we could use it in maths class. But the modest multiplication and division skills it requires puts it out of reach of most at the school. Still for the older ones, and those who are more competitively inclined, it’ll be great. Fiona even let them win a couple of rounds.
