The Games: Paper and Pencil: (Sprouts Paper and Pencil )


Sprouts is a topological pencil-and-paper game invented in 1967 by mathematician John Horton Conway (who also designed the computer game "Life") and Michael S. Paterson, both of the University of Cambridge in the United Kingdom. The game of Sprouts and its joke variant Brussels Sprouts are described in Martin Gardner's book Mathematical Carnival.
