Chomp your way through a chocolate bar, but avoid taking the last square.

Chomp is a game for exactly 2 players.  

You will need paper and two pens.


  • Each player takes a pen.
  • Draw a rectangular grid on the paper to represent the chocolate bar. You could start with a 4 x 3 size grid.
  • Place a cross in the top left square of the grid.

How to play

Taking it in turns, players each take a rectangular bite out of the chocolate bar, by shading in part of the grid.

When a square is chomped (shaded), all available squares below and to the right must also be chomped (shaded).

End Game

The square with the cross in it has been poisoned. The player who is forced to eat this square loses the game
