The user would “connect” the dots, but not be able to see his/her final path until they click the “paint bucket,” which would reveal their path only as it is ready to print. This “blind” drawing also reveals the original path, showing how far from the “correct” path the user has drawn. In short, we are all given the same modules, the same points of beginning and end, the same number of turns, yet each path looks totally different.

This game can be found here (desktop only)
