Lines is an addictive one-player board game. The goal is to arrange five or more balls of one color in a continuous line so that they disappear. Each time you move a ball, three more balls of random colors fall onto the board, provided you don’t manage to build at least a 5-ball row. Your score depends on how many balls disappear by the end of the game.
