Connect 9 Dots


Home | Icebreakers | Puzzles | Connect 9 Dots

You may have seen this puzzle where you have to connect 9 dots with 4 straight lines, without lifting the pen from the paper or going back on yourself — it's a traditional 'thinking outside the box' puzzle.

Solution



Variations

If you can do the 4-line solution, try it with 3 lines or even 1 line!

If your participants get bored with 9 dots, get them to try connecting 16 dots, arranged on a 4 by 4 matrix, with 6 straight lines — and if that's too easy, try 25 dots with 8 straight lines.
