Publisher description for Squares
Squares is one of those games that I played in grade school with a pencil and a piece of paper. The game is played on a rectangular grid of dots, with each player taking turns drawing a line between any two dots. The object of the game is to complete a box. The player completing the most boxes at the end of the game wins! Playing Squares is simple. Turns are taken between players by making a horizontal or vertical line between two dots on a playing grid. If a turn completes a box or boxes, those boxes are "owned" by the player making the move. For every move that completes a box, the player completing the box is given another move. Play continues between the players until the entire playing grid is completed at which time the player with the most completed boxes wins the game. The button on the lower right of the playing field is a "random" move button. I incorporated this button to allow more "seasoned" players to get the game off to a quicker start. The button will make a random move for you as long as there is a move that will not give the computer a chance to make a box.
