Dots and Boxes is a fun and simple classic pen-and-paper game for 2 or more players. The game starts with an empty grid of dots. The grid can be any size and Gametable's Dots and Boxes has a handful to choose from.

We are incredibly excited to announce our third game; Tabletop Dots and Boxes, fully launched on gametable.org this month!

Growing up, many of us played board, card, and pen-and-paper games with our friends, family, and classmates. One of the most fondly remembered games is the classic dots and boxes game played with little more than a paper, pencil, and a friend. Now you can play it digitally with gametable's simple, modern, easy to use online version. Like all our games, Dots and Boxes is a non-revenue side project. No signup, no ads, and no payment walls. Enjoy freely!

Help Us Playtest

Our game is currently live, but we're still actively making tweaks. One particular area that we're seeking feedback on is difficulty scaling. Is the game too hard? Too easy? Is jumping from Medium difficulty to Hard nearly impossible? Let us know with a comment, message, or email us at contact@gametable.org.
