The maximum of the players is 2-4.
You will alternate turns every space.
what part of the brain controls; balance, and coordination?
*hint the brain stem is directly below this part of the brain*
*the cerebellum controls your balance and your muscle memory, that's why you don't have to relearn how to ride a bike every time you use one.*
*Question* what are the three major organs in the nervous system?
*The Brain, Spine, and Nerves are the main organs/parts in the CNS (central nervous system).*
