An electrically operated game is disclosed having a matrix arranged play area of contiguous elements. Various elements of the matrix are designated as scoring elements for each player. One element is distinguished throughout the game. The location of the distinguished element is periodically moved to a contiguous element with a first player controlling the movement along one axis of the matrix and a second player controlling the movement along another axis of the matrix. Scoring by a player results from moving the distinguished element to a scoring element associated with that player. A display device records the score.
