Dots and Boxes - A Strategy Game for Centers or Fast Finishers

Did you as a child, or do your kids play that silly game with the dots and boxes?
Mine played it all the time and l♥ved it!
I decided to create a fun and challenging version for my classroom.
Instead of just the plain old dots and boxes,
I have added some images within the grid.
Completed boxes that contain images are worth more points.
There are colored versions that can be laminated 
and put in centers to be used with vis-a-vis or wipe-off markers
and black and white version that can be copied and left for fast finishers.
I have also included two difficulty levels,
a larger sized grid with fewer spaces for younger students
(or smaller amounts of time,)
and a smaller sized grid with more spaces for older students.

I can't wait to get these copied and laminated to use with my students next week!
Hopefully it will be an incentive to get them focused on getting work done!
