### Re: Seven Lines and Seven Points

The rule basically means each point must be connected to every other point. Does that make more sense? I can break out the scanner if I need to show examples.

### Re: Seven Lines and Seven Points

Turns out that the explanation of rule 1 is incorrect. 3 collinear points can form 3 lines or be one collinear line. I'll edit the original post when I get home. I've got three solutions that I'll post when I get home as well.
