Connection games are a recent genre of abstract board games with some interesting geometrical properties. We introduce a recursive metarule with which existing connection games can be expanded into fractal-like variants with recursively defined play. Computer graphics are used to extrapolate a theoretical game played on a continuous potential field to a similar set of games that are truly fractal in nature. (c) 2005 Elsevier Ltd.
