Here is another one of my games.

(Its rules are slightly more complex than the rules of most of my games

I have posted, but the rules are still relatively simple when compared

with the rules of many famous games.)

Game is for 2 players, each with a differently colored pencil.

Player start by taking turns drawing a predetermined number of dots on

a piece of paper (so that no 3 dots are colinear). Draw about a total

of 25 to 60 dots.

Players alternate drawing straight line-segments with their pencils and

a straight-edge, one line-segment per move, so that a player's

line-segment goes from the last dot drawn to by the other player to any

dot not yet drawn to.

(Player 1 starts by drawing a line-segment from any dot to any other

dot.)

If the game gets this far, the last player draws his/her line-segment

back to the first dot drawn from, so every dot (at game's end) has one

line-segment drawn to it and one-segment drawn from it.

A player gets a point for every preexisting line-segment of his/her

opponent that his/her own line passes through.

A player can draw his/her line through ONE of his/her own preexisting

lines per move, but may not pass through more than one of his/her own

lines per move.

If a player cannot move (because there are 2 or more of his/her own

line-segments between him/her and every dot not yet drawn to), the

player loses a turn (the other player gets to move again).

If neither player can move, the game is over.

(Again -- if the game gets this far, the game is over when the last dot

a first dot are connected by a segment.)

(And there probably should be a rule that a line-segment cannot pass

through any dots on its way to another dot, and that no 2 line-segments

of the same slope can coincide, if 3 dots are colinear.)
