I'm not sure what you mean by a full house - cards? FULL HOUSE. Any three cards of the same rank together with any two cards of the same rank.

Do you mean that if you don't complete all 5 of your picked grid, it's ok to send the card?

Sorry - obviously I am confused.

Arghh, I forgot to sign up for November! Getting in early for December to make sure I don’t forget again.

Arlene, my understanding of a full house on a tic-tac-toe would be to include every square — no mean feat on a five by five grid since that’s 25 items to include! Normal play would be just to pick one line in any direction (so that’s five things to include). I’m sure Gail and Jo will correct me if I’m wrong.

Hi Arlene, yes Joanne is correct, a full house would be to use all the 25 options. Too tricky for me, but some people are inspired by an extra challenge LOL. You only need to pick a line, horizontal, vertical or diagonal, so looking to see 5 options on your card. Hopefully that's do-able, but between you and me, the most important thing is a handmade card sent to your recipient. And to have fun of course. Hugz

Thank you for helping me. So many wonderful ways to make a card. I kept going from square to square and I found my groove. So many ideas to make any kind of card you'd want.

I did a full house last year but this one would be too much for me, I think - LOL! Thanks for a fun challenge, though... Joanne - missed you last month - glad you remembered in November!!
