At my various jobs, I've always introduced what I call the "dot game" to my team. Start by placing three dots on a whiteboard (or paper, of course).
Draw a line between any two dots. Place a new dot anywhere on the line.
A dot can only have three lines touching it. (Explanation: start with just two dots. Draw a line between them. Each dot now has one line. Draw your new dot on the line. That new dot is touched by TWO lines. The new dot in effect cuts the one line in two. The new 3rd dot can only have one more line drawn to/from it.)
No line can intersect another.
You can draw a line out from and back to the same dot in a little loop, realize though that the dot would be touched TWICE if you do.
Lines can wrap AROUND a dot, encircling it. That's important, since no lines can intersect.
To help me with game strategy, I've looked at the math and realized that:
Max_Possible_Dots = (Starting_Dots * 4) - 1
My challenge to the group is to explain why that equation works.
(If you know how many dots are possible, you know if you want to play first or last. Knowing that, you can try to eliminate potential dots by limiting all possible moves, somehow.)
