Circle Circle Dot Dot...

Did you know that you can play Cooties without a boxed set of plastic bug parts? All you need is paper, pens, and a die.

I think this discovery is brilliant because I like the idea of board games but don't like having a billion games with a billion parts to keep track of.

(This is a great game to play if you are without power thanks to Irene.)

The rules are simple:

Players take turns rolling a die. The numbers on the die correspond to the different parts of a cootie bug:
  • 6 = the body
  • 5 = the head
  • 4 = the wings (one at a time for 2 wings)
  • 3 = the legs (one at a time for 6 legs)
  • 2 = the antennae (one at a time for 2 antennae)
  • 1 = the eyes (one at a time for 2 eyes)
For each number that you roll, you draw the corresponding body part on your paper.

You must draw the body before you can draw the legs, wings, or head.

You must draw the head before you can draw the eyes or antennae.

See if you can guess whose cootie bug belongs to whom:

  1. From top to bottom, I'm guessing:

    Where's Rylan's?

  2. I think it's hilarious how Eli and Cole's cooties match their personalities.
