What does the following sentence mean? Especially "the ball in hot potato" and "was really a big X on your back."

Being bullied on the final day of school was like being the last one holding the ball in hot potato, except the ball was really a big X on your back and the game
wouldn’t start again until all the kids came back in August.

Thank you in advance!
