If the first player gets the question correct, they drawing a line in their colour from any dot to a vertically or horizontally adjacent dot. If the next player gets the answers the question correct, they do the same, and the players continue to take turns drawing lines in this way. If they get the question wrong, they miss out on drawing a line until their next turn. The object of the game is to form a square by joining four dots. When a player drawing a line that closes a square, they write their initials inside the square and gets a bonus turn.
