I found my old favorite tic-tac-toe killer, the dot game, on Facebook. I used to play this in elementary school on paper when I was bored in class, and now students can play online in class when they’re bored! What a time we live in!
The dot game is a simple two-player game in which there is a grid of dots, and players take turns drawing lines. If you finish a box, you claim the box as your own and get an extra turn. The player with the most completed boxes at the end wins.
The application lets you challenge your friends as well as find other players who are online to play against. There seems to generally be enough users to find a game, although it’s no Scrabulous.
It’s probably the best paper game ever made, so give it a shot and hone your dot game skills.
