Instructions

Decide upon level of game to play
Shuffle cards and place upside down.
Sort Scouts into equal teams
First Scout runs up and selects a card, turns it over and places it down, runs back and tags next player.
Next Scout runs up and selects a card, turns it over and places it down according to the previous card, and so on until the compass is complete.

To make things easier you can explain which way is NORTH before the game starts, but we prefer to let the Scouts decide, depending on which card is drawn first!!
