HOT ROC: The Dot Game

  • Object of the Game:

    • To begin the game, you will receive a slip of paper. Secretly check to see whether the paper is blank or has a red dot. Then hide it in your pocket and do not show it to anyone during the game.

    • Nondots win the game by forming the largest group of students who are all nondots.

    • Dots win the game by being the only dot in a group.

  • Procedure:

    • You can ask others whether they are dots or nondots, but players may not reveal their slips of paper during the game.

    • You do not have to join a group, but you cannot win the game unless you are in a group of at least two people.

    • You can be a part of a group only if that group agrees that you are a member.

    • If you suspect that someone is a dot, report your suspicion to the teacher. He or she will deal with the accusation appropriately.
