Dots and Boxes is a fun two-player game that originates in the 19th century. Since its creation, it has captivated everyone from children playing in the car to bored mathematicians! It has gone under other names such as boxes, pigs in a pen and game of dots.
It is a deceiving game that appears simple on paper, but quickly shows how complicated and unique it is in reality. It is a game of strategy, sacrifice and foresight! Each sheet contains three different levels of difficulty: Beginner, Intermediate and Expert. As you add lines of rows, you'll find that the game's reach is even further than the previous game! Don't be fooled, even the beginner level takes a great deal of strategic thinking because you need to expend your moves wisely!
Each pad contains 50 sheets so that you can play plenty of games! Each level contains three games, so that you can play best of out of three or simply play all three games! The game works best when you use other colored pens, so stop by our gel pen selection for some great choices!
