Anti-trophy

Grandma gave Charles a pad of paper where each page is the connect game. That’s the one where there is a grid of dots and each turn you draw a line between two dots, trying to complete squares. Charles uses slightly different rules, where you get the square if there are more edges in your color rather than (as normal) you complete the square. I ended up just putting lines in random places for a while which Charles got a few squares. Then Charles started asking “are you done with the game?” every turn. Taking the hint, I agreed that I was done. Charles then said sadly, “but you not get a single square!”. He then pulled the page off and handed it to me, stating “You keep this so you know you not get any squares at all”. I wonder if I should frame it.
