This activity, for two players, is based upon the game of boxes. Students are presented with a partially completed game, with double brackets to expand correctly in order to gain extra edges. Solutions are at the bottom of the page for a player's opponent to check the validity of the solution. A correct answer gains another edge, completing a box results in another turn.
