Triangles Rules

Triangles is a very simple game. The objective is to make as many triangles as possible, by drawing lines from one dot to another.

  1. Players take turns, in each turn a player must draw one line.
  2. A line may not cross other lines or touch other dots than the two that it's connected to.
  3. If a player closes a triangle with his line then he gets the point for that triangle and it gets colored with his color. In order to get a point for a triangle it must be three lines between three points, and there must be no dots inside the triangle. It's allowed to make triangles with dots inside them, but they don't give you any points.
  4. Once there are no more moves that can be made the game is over and the player who created the most triangles wins.

And that's it. The shortest rule section I've ever written :) If you're playing with a mouse you just click on one dot and drag the mouse over to the dot you want to connect to. On a touchscreen you just touch a dot with your finger and drag it over to the other dot.

About Triangles

Author image

This online version of Triangles was made by me, Einar Egilsson. Over there on the left is my current Facebook profile picture. This is a game I played when I was a kid in Iceland, with pen and paper. You just put a bunch of random dots on the paper and then start drawing lines. I had forgotten all about it until I saw on Snapchat that a friend was playing it with her kids. I played it a few times with my wife and kids and started thinking it could be a nice little game to make for the site.

This is the first game I've made for the site that has some dynamic graphics. I've been wanting to create some more puzzle games, not just card games and this is a nice start. Also it was a good opportunity to learn a bit about html5 canvas rendering, and freshen up on my geometry (which apparently I'm terrible at!)

Any comments, questions, ideas for other games or anything else can be sent to admin@cardgames.io.
