      Draw Boxes

Preparation :
Best played by two people.
This activity requires paper and pencils.


Procedure :
Draw a grid of dots, e.g. 6 x 4 or larger.
Players take turns drawing a straight line connecting two neighboring dots, vertically or horizontally.
If this line completes one or more square boxes, the player writes his initial in them, and takes another turn.
Play continues until no more dots remain unconnected.
The player who has made the greatest number of squares is the winner.
