Wide game - 3 teams
3 rolls of coloured insulating tape â€“ Blue, Yellow, Red
Rope to mark off a safe area
Cut off strips of tape about 100mm long â€“ one for each team member.
Set up a safe zone in the centre and station a leader there with supplies of tape
Divide Scouts into three teams â€“ Blue, Yellow, Red
Each Scout attached their tape strip onto their right shoulder
A leader takes each team to a point on the playing area with a sealed envelope containing an â€˜enemyâ€™ colour (different from their own team).
Aim of the game
Team members have to run after the â€˜enemyâ€™ and remove the â€˜enemyâ€™ tape â€“ this makes a â€˜captureâ€™.
If a Scout has his tape stip removed they must go with their captor to the central area where he will be given another strip â€“ this time he will join the team that just caught him.
Once one team is used up, the team is removed from the chain - for example if there are no blues left, it is Reds after yellows and yellows after reds etc.
The game ends when there is only one team left, or to cut the game short, when one team has more than half of the group.
