Dots and boxes

Invented in 1889 by the French mathematician François Edouard Anatole Lucas


Each player must alternately draw dashes joining adjacent vertical or horizontal dots. If you are able to complete a square, you mark it as your own and you must draw another dash. At the end of the game, players achieve long runs of squares. When all squares are claimed, the game ends, and the winner is the player with the most squares.


On Little Golem is game played on boards: 4x4, 5x5, 6x6 and 7x7.
