Fun & Games - Dashdots

Description: Dashdots is a Dashboard Widget based on a popular JavaScript game which was created over five years ago. The goal of the game is to create as much squares as you can by connecting single dots. Things would be easy if there wasn't a clever computer who is playing against you and who loves to connect the final dots when you're trying to win. The point is that the player who places the final line to finish the square gets the score. So beware of the clever binary mind on the other side.

I really like this game- I play it all the time on paper, so it's nice to have it in Dashboard.

I would like to see the push button interface go away, and change to something less awkward. I would also like to see a two player option, and the score not be in editable text boxes. Other than those few complaints though, very good widget game.

Any chance this can be made 2 player?

I love it. I'm hopelessly addicted.

My employer won't be happy.

I've mastered this AI, 42-7! The secret is to make tunnels and never have any area surrounded by 3 lines unless the computer does it! Make it harder! and maybe make it possible to make a bigger or smaller game grid? The system of linking the lines could use some work... how about where you just click between the two points once to make a line, instead of using 2 clicks?

it should be harder. best would be if it had different difficulties to choose. the hard possibility should be very hard. the computer makes to many failures.

but I like it

Whenever I have some time to this, this widget is perfect for it! Especially because the computer is easy to beat, so it makes me feel better. But it would still be nicer if you could choose different difficulty levels. And there must be a better way to make lines than to click on dots. Also, I would love it if there was a two player mode. And I this is just a suggestion: when you click on the info button, it does an animated flip, instead of just changing to the back. But besides those complaints, it's AWESOME!!!!

I LOVE it! However, I think that it is too easy. I beat the computer 45-4. It is my favorite game on the dashboard.

It Cheats!! sometimes when i put in 1 line (which is all i can) it will put in three or more so it can get some dots, it beat me 45 - 4 just before!!

That's about all i can say that's annoying about it!
other than that, Great Widget, thanx!
