Dots and Boxes

2 to 4 players


A visual game fun for all ages.


Setup: One player will draw an array of dots (it should be at least 5x5 for two players, 7x7 for three players and 9x9 for four players).

Playing the game: Players take turns drawing a line between two adjacent dots (no diagonals). If a player completes a box (four adjacent dots connected forming a square with no dots inside) they write the first letter of their name in it, and draw another line. The player with their initial in the most boxes at the end wins.
