Dots & Boxes: Main Takeaways
Dots & Boxes is a classic line game with two game play options: single player vs. Kindle, and two player mode.
In single player mode, you are given the choice as to the difficulty level of playing against the Kindle. During the game, the controls are displayed at the bottom of the screen, making it easy to refer to them for reference. Once the game starts, players take turns making lines between the dots, building the sides of a box.
If you complete the 4th side of a box, your image gets put into the box, and you get an additional turn to add another line, giving you the chance to create additional boxes and earn points. The game is over when all boxes are filled in, and the player with the most boxes wins.
Dots & Boxes: Conclusion and Overall Rating
Dots & Boxes gets two thumbs up from me. I loved the traditional paper format of this game as a child, and love the digital format as an adult. The controls are simple enough for a child to play with an adult, and having two gameplay options makes this game great very versatile. I’d give Dots & Boxes 5 stars.
