You play this game against the computer.

When itís your turn, click two adjacent dots in the grid to draw a line between them.
The line must be horizontal or vertical. If the line youíve drawn completes a box, you score a point, and can draw another line somewhere else.
Keep going like this until you draw a line that doesnít complete a box Ė then itís the computerís turn.

The game continues until there is nowhere left to draw a line. The player who has completed the most boxes is the winner.

Your turns will be very short at the beginning of the game, and can be quite long near the end.

This counts as a completed box... and this doesn't...

Try to avoid drawing a line that forms the third side of a box, ready for your opponent to finish off.
This is easy at the beginning of the game, and gets harder and harder as the grid fills up.

Towards the end of the game, look for areas where you will be able to complete as many boxes as possible one after the other.
