Introduction: Minefield
The team has come to a battle field that has been laid out with mines.
One Brownie at a time must attempt to cross the battlefield without stepping on a mine.
Once a team member steps on a mine, they must return to the end of the line.

• Lay out the battlefield on a flat area with plenty of space
• The grid is 8 x8 with a total of 64 sections
• Explain the rules to the Brownies
a) The whole team must cross to win the game
b) There can only be one person on the minefield at any time
c) The team can talk to each other between turns but no talking once a brownie has stepped onto the minefield
d) Moves are one square at a time, in any direction

Only the Leader knows which squares are safe and will indicate appropriately (saying BOOM loudly if they step on a mine!)

If you have younger Brownies, let them talk to each other as they take their turns as they may not remember the previous attempts.
