Chicken Scratch or Dots and Boxes

My mom taught my sister and I how to play "chicken scratch" on a road trip from Kansas to Mississippi one summer when I was a kid. I have called it chicken scratch every since, but apparently the real name is "dots and boxes." Either way I liked playing it when I was a kid, and now I like to play it with my kids! Print a few copies and keep them in the car, use them at restaurants or in the doctor's office while you wait.

My kids love this game too. I had no idea what it was called.

This is a fave for us too. It works in restaurants, church, the car, wherever! We call it "Box In" - funny
