Dots and Boxes

Connect the dots: click between dots to show connector.
Take control of a box: complete the box to own it.
Gain the most space: First one to control more than half the boxes wins, but play out to the end.
Players take turns making connections, one at a time.
When completing a box, that player must make another connection.
(In other words, a player's turn continues as long as he continues to make connections that complete a box; once he makes a connection that does NOT complete a box, that player's turn ends).

Due to inability to run (Deployment exception) with later versions of greenfoot. and loss of code (on old computer that died), this project was recreated from scratch and replaced in mid-June 2015. Major re-haul again in November 2020 for HTML-5 compatibility.

CONTROLS (added mid-June 2015 during recreation):

Press "escape" at any time to start a new game. A dialog box will appear to allow changing of grid size and player's names and colors.
