        • The lines cannot pass through another circle.
    • Tips
      • Don’t go for the obvious pairs at once.
        • Sometimes, a dot’s true pair will be located on the other side of the board.
        • Instead, look for all the candidate pairs, including those further away.
      • Try to look for clusters of two or more dots of the same color.
        • Look for the possible pairs that these dots may have.
        • Remember, all the dots have a counterpart they can be paired with. If its pair is not adjacent to it, it must be located some distance away.
        • Make sure you can draw any straight line between a dot and a candidate it can be paired with.
      • Mark the distant pairs first.
        • They create lines that can potentially block other possible pairs. Thus, you must often work around them to find other pairs.
        • They’re also a good way to eliminate candidate pairs because of the lines they create.
  • Target Audience
    • The game is suited for people of all ages who like logic puzzle games.
    • The game has no adult themed content.
