The paper and pencil game for kids above is the category game that Dots to boxes is a classic pencil and paper game, a perfect travel game for the whole family. To play this game, the first player draws a line between two of the dots on the page vertically or horizontally. You can only draw vertical lines or horizontal lines between dots. You cannot draw diagonal lines. The second player draws a line between two of the dots for the next turn. The players alternate back and forth each drawing one line for each turn. If the line you draw is the fourth side of a box, the player to finish the box marks that box as their own. This is usually done by coloring in the box a certain color or writing an initial in the box. When a player completes a box they get another turn. Sometimes a player will have many turns in a row completing boxes before the other player gets a turn again. Continue taking turns drawing lines and marking completed boxes. The game ends when the entire grid has been completed.

The battleship paper game is also a fun one. Before play begins, each player secretly arranges their ships on their primary grid. Each ship occupies a number of consecutive squares on the grid, arranged either horizontally or vertically. The number of squares for each ship is determined by the type of ship. The ships cannot overlap (i.e., only one ship can occupy any given square in the grid). The types and numbers of ships allowed are the same for each player. These may vary depending on the rules.
