Announce this game at least one week in advance, and urge the boys to prepare. Have the Troop Scribe copy the preceding questions and answers on 3" x 5" cards, underlining all words that are printed in italics.

Demonstrate with a Scout

All players must know just what they are going to do before they start to play. Otherwise there will be confusion at the outset. Call out one boy, give him a card and take one yourself. Give him the Scout Handclasp and ask him the question on your card. After he answers, correctly or incorrectly, read the answer. If his answer was correct, give him the card. Then have him read his question. After you have answered, have him read the answer on his card and give it to you or keep it, depending upon whether your answer was correct or incorrect.

Now the Explanation

After your demonstration explain to the Troop: "I'll give everyone one card, but do not let anyone else see it." After passing out cards have Scouts scatter about the room in pairs. Now continue your explanation: "Before you read your questions, give each other the Scout Handclasp, and then ask your questions and read your answers, just as Bill and I did. When you both have finished give each other the Scout Salute and find another partner as quickly as possible. Any time you have no card, come to me, and as long as my supply lasts I'll give you another. The one who has the most cards at the end of the game wins."

Finally, remind them always to read the answer, whether the answer given was right or wrong. That's where the teaching comes in.


If you wish to improve or add to the questions, do so.

Do not let the players stop the game and come to you with their arguments. Let them settle their own.
