You don't need to know anything about anything. Just play. Play on the bus, play in the tub, play anywhere you like. You only need to join five dots. There are however three simple rules: 1) Join five dots by drawing straight lines, using four existing dots and one new dot 2) The lines can be horizontal, vertical or diagonal 3) The lines can't overlap Good luck! Join Five or Morpion Solitaire is originally a paper and pencil game. It's originally from France or near France. It might even be from somewhere else. We just don't know.
