Money money money-Wide Game

Report Copyright Infringement View in OSM UK


Scouts have to find leaders who may/may not hold cards with amounts of money, adults may have cards that double scouts' money or cause them to lose it all. Scouts can bank money in bank to safeguard before looking for more. At end of game only banked money counts. Thanks to Brendan who taught us this game.

Divide scouts into teams min 3 max 5, give each instruction sheet and a score sheet, give leaders a pen each and 4*cards (i stapled them back to back in pairs of different cards eg £5, Lose; £100, Double. so a team could pick one of 4 cards at each leader.) Send leaders out with start time and finish time agreed and boundaries. Explain game to Scouts, explain boundaries and location of bank, which will also be first aid base.
