Linking Words tic-tac-toe
The idea of the game is for groups to link together three squares to win as in normal tic-tac-toe. Groups gain a square by giving a correct sentence for their chosen word. In this way, you can target the game at any level you want for what ever target language you want.
Here is one example:
|Although||Despite||In spite of|
|Though||And||As a result|
