A variation of the dots and boxes game but more suited to those that prefer a less formal structure! It is much harder to see all the potential consequences when you draw your lines.

You start by drawing a series of random, well spaced, dots, at least 8 to make the game interesting.

General Play

  • The two players take turns to join two dots with a line.
  • The line cannot cross another line or pass through another spot
  • If a player completes a triangle they initial that triangle (or one person might color it in)
  • If you complete a triangle you must draw another line.

When there are no more dots to join / triangles to make then the winner is the one with the most triangles.
