Abstract/Artist's Statement

Sprouts is a combinatorial game which is played with paper and pencil. It was created in 1967 at the University of Cambridge by John H. Conway and Michael S. Patterson. It was popularized in the U.S.A. by an article in the July 1967 issue of Scientific American written by Martin Gardner. In this paper we use Graph Theory to explore the game os Sprouts as well as several variants including a game of our own creation, Bard Bipartite Sprouts.
