How to Play:
1. Decide who goes first. After the first game, the loser of the previous game plays first.
2. Players take turns connecting adjacent dots with vertical, horizontal, or diagonal lines.
3. When players enclose one of the scoring shapes (see below), they write their initials inside. Once a shape has been claimed, it may not be divided into smaller shapes.
4. Only scoring shaped may be claimed. Other shapes may be divided.
5. Claiming a shape gives a player another turn. A player continues until he/she continues to complete scoring shapes.
6. The game is over when no more scoring shapes can be completed. Players tally the scores of the shapes that contain their symbols. The player with the highest score is the winner.
