Dots-n-boxes is the familiar game that people often play
on a napkin when bored at a restaurant. For those who
aren't familiar (or just don't know the name of this game),
2 players play on a rectangular grid of dots by alternatively
drawing line segments to connect 2 adjacent dots. Whenever
a player completes a box, he gets a point and another turn.
The goal is to score the most points.
A few years ago I became interested in this game
when I learned that there are real strategies in it.
I studied game-playing algorithms for a while and made
a pretty good one to play this game, but I never got around
to implementing it... until I discovered the joy of Allegro.
This is the first Allegro game that I have released.
Download it and enjoy!

Most of the file size is due to the music!
These should make you drool and say, "Gee, I just have to download
