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

This is version 1217 of Triangles.
