Dots and Boxes (also known as Boxes, Squares, Paddocks, Square-it, Dots and Dashes, Dots, Smart Dots, Dot Boxing, or, simply, the Dot Game) is a pencil and paper game for two players (or sometimes, more than two) first published in 1889 by Édouard Lucas.
When we were kids, our parents would brainstorm to buy us all kinds of interesting toys. They would spend most of their time playing with us, showing us how to fiddle with the toys they bought. Likewise, when we have kids, we would do the same thing our parents had done, buying anything we could think of that are fun to play with. We should be graceful for our parents spending time playing toys with us, nurturing us with love and care. Also, it would be delightful when our kids enjoy playing the toys we bought them.
