Play Flash Dots, a Connect the Dots Online Game

Rating: 6.7/10 - 414 votes

Old-school "join the dots" has been played for decades on paper and boards in classrooms and homes around the world – Now you have the fun opportunity to play online! Flash Dots is a cool mouse-clicking version of this classic notebook / copybook-based connect-the-dots game where you must score points by creating the fourth wall of a box.

Take turns with your tricky computer-controlled opponent to join the dots on a large grid by drawing horizontal and vertical lines. Whichever player draws the fourth line to complete a box is awarded that box, and the player with the higher number of boxes created at the end of the game is the winner!

This challenging, interactive puzzle & analytical thinking skills activity for kids, teens and grownups requires good observation and concentration levels, smart strategy and quick thinking skills when under pressure, and the vision to spot areas of the game grid to exploit. Courage and determination are key attributes of a winner. Always remember that your opponent has to place a line somewhere on the grid – so cornering your rival into making a THIRD line of a box is definitely a good play.

How to Play: You begin with a large 9X9 grid of dots. Using your computer mouse or touchpad, click on the area between two dots (horizontally or vertically) in order to draw a connecting line. You and your computer opponent then take turns to draw new lines.

Once the grid has filled up somewhat, you can begin to make boxes. If your line completes the fourth wall of a box / square, that box is filled with a blue color, and you are awarded one point. Also, once you successfully create a box, you get to ‘go again’, and draw another line (You could end up completing a few boxes in a row or in succession). However, when you draw a line that does not create a closed box, it’s your opponent's turn. When the computer opponent completes a box, it is filled with a red color (Your opponent is a bit of a wizard at playing connect the dots!).

The player with the most boxes / points once all lines are drawn is the winner. Click on the ‘Restart Game’ at any stage to start again with an empty grid.
