For older kids, you can also play this way: take turns placing a button on a point until all 3 buttons have been placed. Then, players can take turns moving their buttons from point to point in an attempt to get 3 in a row (no jumping allowed). Counters can only move to adjacent, empty points. If the same 3 moves are repeated at least twice, a stalemate has been achieved and there is no winner. Have fun playing Tapatan!
