Gale Connection Games Abstract Board Games

First published in Martin Gardner’s "Mathematical Recreations" column in Scientific American, he gave it the name "Gale" after its author. The game was published as a boxed game in the early 1960s under the name Bridg-It. The players alternately connect two orthogonally adjacent dots of their own color with a bridge -- either a length of plastic or (if playing on paper) simply a line of their color. A line may not cross another line already played. The object is to connect the opposite edges of the board that are your color.
