Players: Normally two but possibly more.
This game is more complex than it initially appears, and even on a 5×5 grid there is plenty of opportunity for skillful play.
You start by laying out a grid of dots of what ever size you prefer (5 x 5, 6 x 4 etc etc).
- The two players take turns to join two adjacent dots with either a horizontal or vertical line.
- If a player completes the fourth side of a box they initial that box
- If you complete a box you must draw another line.
When all the boxes have been initialed the winner is the player who has completed the most boxes.
