Dots For Tots harnesses the power of Ms. Pac-man, and our irrational love for her, for good.
We’re raising funds for Child’s Play Charity by playing Ms. Pac-man for as long as your donations keep us going. We’re just a handful of web nerds at Viget Labs. Long ago, our awesome client Squidoo gifted us with our own Ms. Pac-man machine. Little did they know the Pac-man fever they would one day incite in our office.
Your donations will decide how long we keep fighting ghosts and chasing down sweet, sweet fruit. For the first fifteen minutes of play, the donations total needs only to be a mere $1. Each fifteen minute increment after that, the total needed goes up another 25%. Time equals money, so help us hit our goal of $1,250!
??? We'll keep playing for as long as your donations keep paying!
We talk a big game, but the numbers don’t lie. Check out how we’re doing today:

Blair may not be the best player, but she's certainly the most animated. The better she does, the more panicked and excited she gets. And the more excited she gets, the more she flails and squeals and generally embarrasses herself.
Impatiently finishing a board when there were still ghosts that could've been eaten.
Blake holds all the highest scores, and with good reason. He's dedicated himself to studying all the patterns of the game. This scientific approach makes him a cold, heartless, ghost-eating machine.
When things work out irrationally well through sheer luck.
What Jason lacks in Pac-manning refinement, he makes up for in honesty. None can be trusted more to tweet their score, the good, the bad, and the just plain ridiculous.
To go in for the power pellet with ghosts right on your back, but then turn before actually eating it, thereby dying dramatically and gruesomely.
The name of the game for Trevor is Aggression & Greed. Never flinching or hesitating, Trevor ruthlessly stalks ghosts up until the last possible second. This raptor-like approach means high scores... and high risks.
Taking great pains to line up ghosts, only to have it all go wrong at the last minute.
