Report Copyright Infringement View in OSM UK


Noughts and Crosses/ Quiz. Can be used to underpin a topic that the scouts have been studying.


Equipment: Chairs & a list of Quiz Questions


Chairs are arranged to form a 3×3 ‘noughts and crosses’ board. The players are arranged into two teams. The leader asks the first player from a team a question. If that person answers correctly they may go and sit on a vacant chair. Play then switches to the other team, and again the first person in line is asked a question. The aim of the game is to get three players in a straight line (horizontal, vertical or diagonal). When a line is scored, that team score a point and play is resumed from scratch. Play until a set time or points limit. Highest scoring team wins
