ah, Dots and Boxes!

As a child, I played this game quite often with my babysitter - an older woman who for close to a decade was essentially a third grandmother.

Our paths cross every five or ten years when I'm visiting back home - she's in her 90s now - and we still fondly remember playing this game together.

I encourage everyone play these games with their children - there's something about the interaction of the players that creates warm, lasting memories for everyone involved.

Not just for children! For some serious treatment, see:
